We don't think the genre is "worn out" so to speak, and we'd happily welcome a bunch of new platformers are on our super HD box (new 2D Sonic game SEGA?).

Imagine our delight when we saw the debut trailer for Explodemon! (above). Being developed by Curve Studios (the team behind Buzz!: Master Quiz) is described as "a loving homage to SNES-era Japanese action games."

Designer Jonathan Biddle said of the game, "[it's] what Treasure would create if they mixed Yoshi's Island with Half-Life 2. It includes many elements from games as diverse as Street Fighter II, Halo, Super Metroid and Bangai-O."

Colour us mildly excited for this one. It's shaping up nicely.
