Same here on how it changes the way you play. I'm halfway through world 2 and find myself crawling through some levels collecting the coins. Almost ran out of time a few times as well. So far I'm enjoying it a lot.
My left finger got sprained? yesterday while doing something. I'm not entirely sure what happened but it hurts to play this game right now. And the d-pad is too low and makes my thumb hurt as well, argh! The game is fun, just feels a little too familiar. I hope the DLC mixes things up later down the line.
My only disappointment with the game so far is the world design, I have a feeling this game is just going to copy the world design and progression from the DS version... I at least hope they change up the world when DLC is released...
I played a good bit of it, and I'm in World 3 now. I'm really digging the game. I actually skipped the first world and second world by finding a secret exit and warp canon that took me to a Secret World, and then headed straight to Wendy O. Koopa's water-filled World 3. (kind of a throwback to Super Mario Bros. 3... I like!)
Anyway, game is great and I'm glad I downloaded it. I was also impressed by the download speed... the game only took about 10 minutes from start to finish. eShop is pretty efficient!
Yep, I just found that same secret exit! . I like the fact that the warp cannon doesn't just shoot you to the next area, but rather has you flying through the sky collecting coins along the way. It's a nice touch.
