    So that exclusive thing for WiiU owners as an apology released. It's not a demo at all. It's a fully online challenge based and time based game where you can see your ranking among world players, your friends, or just in your country and race against ghosts.

    There are two things:

    Weekly Challenges
    Daily Challenges

    Weekly Challenges are.. well, something that goes for a whole week giving you more time to try and perfect your platforming to get a Diamond Trophy (more on trophies in a bit).

    Daily Challenges are ones that last for a day so you have to be good if you want to get the Diamond Trophy.


    Trophies are worth points, or experience if you will. When you get enough, your "Awesomeness Level" increases. The higher the Awesomeness Level, the more challenges you can do such as the Daily Extreme Challenge. The DXC offers a different challenge and level each time, but the levels are brutal and obviously meant for skilled platformers.

    You get to collect Lums which will let you unlock more characters. Whether or not this will carry over to the full game or not, I have no clue.


    So far there are a few different challenges, I'm hoping there will be new ones:

    Collect 150 Lums as fast as possible
    Get to the end as fast as possible
    Travel as far as possible.

    I already put like 10 hours into the game, it's really fun. It's free so there's no reason not to pick it up. You get to play the three levels that were in the demo unlimited amount of time too.

    It is very fun --- also I like how even the challenge allow for multiplayer. Just 3 points away from 2nd level of awesomeness... (didn't have enough time to get above bronze on the 1st days challenge)

    I almost missed Yesterday's challenge. It updates at like 1am PST. It was 1230 for me and I was playing Lego City, went and did the challenge, and got Gold at like the last second.

    I have to check to see if I'm still in the top 10..

    You may wish to mention that the levels from the demo are included in this, and that your progress in them also counts towards your awesomeness level. I perfected all three before doing any challenges and got to start off on Awesomeness level 1. Also, Lums collected there are saved and counted, which makes it nice when I only need a couple hundred to unlock the next character. I just replay the third demo level a time or two.

    Thus far I've been content setting Silver records for myself. These things actually earn their title, Challenges. Lol.

    I attempt to get at least Gold on all the regular challenges, and at least Silver on the extreme. I was able to get a Diamond Trophy once.

    I will say that multiplayer does get an unfair advantage in the Murphy challenges though.

    Definitely. I'm starting to think it's the only way to get Diamond on some of the Murphy challenges is through multiplayer. The computer that controls the character on single player misses a couple lums sometimes no matter what.

    Hate to point this out, but your first post doesn't mention anything about the original demo levels. Just a bunch about the challenges.

    Edit: Found it, last sentence. Sorry, man. Guess it just didn't stand out. Oh well, still a great app.

    There's a level that's the Eye of the Tiger (Rocky) song by Survivor.

    Wait, there are Diamond Trophies? I thought Gold was the highest.

    Yeah. You don't even need to be in the top 10.

    For the distance challenges, to see how far you can get. You need like 1700m.
