I preordered the game ages ago and my Gamestop-working buddies have been telling me to pick it up, if for no other reason than to clear it out of their system. I can't afford to blow money on another wagglefest, and I have seven days to return the game before I can trade it in at a pittance.
So I leave it to you, my dear NDBers, to sell me on this game. Please help!
(Technically, I'm still on hiatus, but if I didn't have that seven-day time limit, I'd wait till I got back...)

I bought a PAL copy a long time ago. While I have a NTSC Wii
So thanks to this thread I finally decided to take it to a friend's house and check it out. Singleplayer is okay. You go around painting grey buildings and liberate little blob people by touching them and completing 'paint challenges' and whatnot within a time limit. It's kinda annoying how you can only jump by flicking your Wiimote upwards. It's unresponsive sometimes and while I had plenty of time to spare in the first stage, no doubt will it drive you bonkers in later levels with tighter time limits.
Multiplayer's good fun though. There's a bunch of different modes you can play with up to 4 players where it basically gets down to who has the most buildings painted in his colour before the timer runs out. This article explains them nicely.
I say get it if you have 3-4 wiimotes lying around and want to try something new multiplayer-wise. I wouldn't lay down 50 bucks just for the singleplayer experience though.

Thanks for the feedback, guys. I think I'll return it and take a pass for now (I just lost one of my part time jobs last night :X), and if I have the money for it later - or if there's a used copy lying around somewhere - I'll give it a shot.
Fortunately, the game only cost $30, so it's not like I'm paying a ludicrous amount for it either way. Just, now's not a financially good time for me XD
