If you've always loved the old-school 2D platformers, pay attention.

Developer The Good Mood Creators have announced a new indie title, Mekazoo , for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Wii U and PC. It'll arrive some time during the fourth quarter of this year.

Dubbed a "throwback 2D platformer," Mekazoo lets players control up to five "mekanimals," each of which has a set of unique abilities. There's the armadillo, wallaby, panda, frog and pelican and players must become familiar with the strengths and weaknesses of each. The developers wanted to create "free-flowing speedy gameplay" and that's pretty much what we see in the trailer below.

Creative Director Jarrett Slavin says Mekazoo was inspired by the likes of platforming legends Super Mario World and Donkey Kong Country , which is a good sign. Can't wait to try this one!

That looks like a ton of fun.

Did anyone else get a flashback when that music started? I can't place it, but the very beginning of that track sounded familiar to me. Honey I Shrunk the Kids or something.

Looks pretty slick, but was anyone else thinking of the old Socic games more than Super Mario? The soundtrack did reminded me of Donkey Kong Country through.
