... Why would they do this? Why not just use a different model? What the hell?...

And you see, this is why game journalists think mobile gaming is the way to go nowadays.

Throughout all of that I literally could not understand what the point of the game was. Do you literally just destroy wooden boxes and barrels all day and get points...?

I expected something more like that Chinese Super Mario Galaxy knock off from a while back. I am shocked that they quite literally used a Yoshi model.

Wow. Unbelievable. Complete copyright infringement/stealing. I don't know how you enforce something upon these developers, but I hope Nintendo slaps these guys upside the head.

If this is what analysts and journalism want gaming to go, then so be it. They might as well ask for the death of creativity (at least in videogames).

This looks as if it was made on Garris Mod.

So THIS is what a "Hardcore" Yoshi game would look like... Everything he touches EXPLODES!!! No thanks...

Yoshi doesn't even fit in with his surroundings...

Yoshi never even blinked. Not once. What awful thing could have happened to cause that?

Definitely looks challenging. Might have to pick this up...

Anywho, looks like a really good Yoshi model though.

Well with that kind of quality and gamplay mechanics, it's hard to disagree with them!

Could not agree me more good sir.

Now now, are you absolutely sure that is Yoshi. The name is clearly Esa. I think that's a different color of green for this dinosaur. Not even remotely familiar...


....OK, enough with the sarcasm. If the American justice system worked at all, the person who made this game would lose every dollar they have ever made their entire life. A, because they ripped off Nintendo. B, for making an absolute joke of a "game." Mobile gaming - where plagiarism happens.

Looks better then Yarn Yoshi

That looks like a VERY bad Unity game... Using all the default assets and a fan-made model found on the Internet. I'm pretty sure I have seen this particular model somewhere else before... The way the hands move remind me of something...

And they're charging for it. Oh Nintendo's lawyers are going to have a field day with this.

They disabled comments. People must have been calling them out on their shovel.

That's why you need the death penalty. You mess with Yoshi.... Nintendo's holy grail. You die nothing less.

My favourite part is the "Founded Keys: 0/3" at the top right of the screen.

Ladies and Gentlemen, this is the thing that is beating the videogame market nowadays. Bravo. :?

Damn Apple. They should stop this crap. Rabble rabble rabble....oh wait.... Not a single comment above calling for Google to police their store better. :?

Nintendo Rip-Off on iOS, outrage at Apple and calling for Nintendo to sue Apple (for some bizarre reason, considering Apple didn't make the game)

Nintendo Rip-Off on Google Store, nah Google, you're cool.

Hypocrite, thy name is GoNintendo reader

Apparently this developer never heard of Yoshi and never knew Yoshi is a Nintendo character.

I kinda find it hard to believe that a game developer has never heard of Yoshi in relation to Nintendo....

Also he just bought a random game model from some catalogue.

edit: so I had a look at the catalogue: http://www.turbosquid.com/3d-models/3d- ... del/649796
