A new trailer appears for PagodaWest Games' Sonic-inspired iOS platformer, Major Magnet, making me wonder if maybe this new hero is the offspring of two older ones. Could Sonic and Robotnik have a baby?

He's got the speed. He's got the body shape. He's got a strong attraction to mechanical devices. Sure, they're both guys, but science is doing wondrous things with gene splicing these days.

Major Magnet is due out in late February. Until then, poke at its new website. Just poke at it.
