I LOVE Pulseman. I wholeheartedly recommend this game to anyone who is a fan of 2D platformers. It's an entire game based around a few simple mechanics, with increasingly inventive and difficult ways to use said mechanics to overcome obstacles. As the article says, definitely deserves much more praise than it unfortunately has received due to it's import only status. Anyone looking for a solid platformer on VC should purchase this without hesitation.
I'm strangely conflicted because as much as I LOVE the Pokemon games, I also adore Pulseman and Drill Dozer, so it's a bit of a shame Game Freak don't get to work on their own titles more often. With talk that systems are in place for their developers to do just that, though, I'm looking forward to seeing what they have for us in the future, beyond the March release of Harmoknight.
