Grab your pixelated trainers: the Silver Award-winning platformer, Mikey Shorts, has suddenly turned up on Google Play.

It's one of the purest and most pleasant platformers on mobile. All you do is run, jump, and slide to save people and avoid the odd laser wall of death. Apt for speedrunning, too.

In our review, we said: "Mikey Shorts is a speed-run platformer that's all about learning levels and nailing jumps with expert precision. If you prefer to take it slow, though, Mikey's unimaginative design will fail to thrill".

Follow-up Mikey Hooks is also coming to Android soon.
