Hmm.

HMMMM.

Guess you can't really complain if your game is inspired by another game and then the people who made the first game go and make a sequel that's similar to yours, but... still always a bummer to see something treated as groundbreaking when I've seen the same thing done before

It kind of reminds me of Bug Chucker, actually.

I think a prescient Malfhok gave Rovio the idea in May of last year in the first sentence of this post:

The first screen in the video and the music kind of reminds me of Super Mario Galaxy but I do see the Bug Checker connection. Wait... Angry Birds... has been recycled in space!:

This all shows what's been happening for a while and why Cyan isn't successful. Lack of coverage and lack of advertisements. Rovio has both and is loved by the mobile crowd, so while Bug Chucker gets 1000+ downloads on Android, Space is getting millions.

But yeah, a very ... original... game, I guess. :P

The fun part is that even the original Angry Birds was a direct ripoff of one or two popular Flash games that were created a year or so before its release. I guess cutesy mascots make all the difference.

I installed Bug Chucker on my Motorola Photon 4G (Android) and had so many problems with it, I deleted it.

Hmm... maybe it's a sign.
