Celebrated? Well, at least by me. I gave it one of our highest rated reviews of the year and for good reason: IT'S AWESOME! And now that it's on Steam for $7.99. You "Ugh, I only buy Steam games"-people have no excuse not to buy!

It is a meeting point between old game design and new, with every other moment punctuated with some of the most thrilling level and boss design to grace the genre. As improbable as it may sound, this game made by one guy not only stands up to the classics, it is every bit as good as Gunstar Heroes and Contra
For you cheapskates, I'll be giving out codes for the game on my Twitter, later today.
