Nope, but I played it on 3DS.  Itís good if a bit short.  It looks like Terraria but it is closer to Metroid if you mined resources to get your upgrades.  There are also puzzle chambers to unlock additional special abilities.  My only complaint was that the whole thing can be finished in about 4 hours.

any kind of replayability?  I'm more interested in this on the Vita but if there's not much to do after you beat it, I'll wait for a better sale.

Not really.  Itís a linear story with a clear-cut ending.  I suppose you could try to get all of the upgrades but I had most of them within the 4 hour timeframe.  If you went for everything you MIGHT increase the length to 6 hours but I doubt you would want to do it more than once.

Still, unless they jacked the price up (I think it was $6 on 3DS), I do think the game is good enough and worth one play through.

regular price is $10, PS+ will be 8.  too bad they didn't expand it out a bit for this release.

well, I finished this up last night.  It's a fun diversion, but there really isn't much of a challenge if you take your time and explore.  It says I got about 8 hours out of it, getting all of the upgrades and mined materials.  Not sure I'll go through it again on PS4 but I may try a 'no death/2 hour run' to see if I can make it.
