The fun of Spikes! In your hands!
Tough-as-nails platformer 1001 Spikes has earned its share of die-hard (and often) fans. However, a seemingly consistent criticism of the Wii U version among players, and also mentioned in our review, is the lack of off-TV play.
But publisher Nicalis has been listening, and have tweeted that a free update in the near future will bring the challenge of 1001 Spikes to the GamePad:

Nicalis founder Tyrone Rodriguez has come out as not favoring the GamePad in the past, but this update is showing a willingness to set his opinions aside for audience preference:
