It has three play modes, World Cup, Training, and network games. In World Cup, it has players like Erykah Badu, Charlie Parker, Thom York, and Bjrök, all musicians that I do not understand.

An ASCII puzzle platformer. Your energetic avatar auto runs through the level, and you must choose the correct path (by jumping/falling) in order to obtain various items that are necessary to survive the obstacles in your way, and reach the exit. For example, if you don’t get Scuba gear before entering the water, or you don’t get an antidote for poison, you die.
Though, I must admit that dying doesn’t look too unpleasant for your character, as they seem to do ASCII versions of various popular dances. ;)
It’s already out on iOS and PC, and is currently going through Greenlight. I really like the music in the Steam trailer. There are 64 single screen levels, and you can read a full review on Touch Arcade.
