I don't think I've seen anyone defend a game so much as Goofy has.

Lol...I laughed so hard when you I read that. I have been on the "defense" warpath this week. This, Bit-1, and Streetbike.

SCB is more fast-paced (like everyone else has said) and is definitely more fun IMO. I like the retro pixel graphics way more than MK's graphics.

SCB because unlike Muffin Knight it's hard as hell to get to 10.

lol that's the exact reason I voted for MK. It's hard, but not "whip your iPhone at the wall" hard. GoofyJ, you can't really be that much FOR one title and that much AGAINST the other, can you? They're so similar in nature!

More like MK is similar in nature to SCB.

+1

I honestly don't see the appeal of retro graphics. Maybe its the 'older' crowd Who have been gaming for years, and like to relive High School glory days and are more comfortable with older styled graphics as it puts them in tune with those times and therefore they play best with retro style. Based on my comments, one might think i am a young buck noob; I'm actually quite old myself.

I have been a gamer for many many years, and I am bathing in the new art and game styles, as opposed to some that just want to stick with what they are used to or something along those lines. Im not saying I envision these gamers as only having retro games either.
Technology is a constant; some people love going With the ever-changing game types, graphics etc., while others appeal to retro for whatever individualistic reasons.

For me, when you look past the fact that the goal in both games is the same, they are two completely different games. Both are awesome. I give full credit to Vlambeer for coming up with the awesome gameplay, but Angry Mob deserves credit as well for getting it on iOS and making it fun in their own way. I can't say one is better than the other because the each game's gameplay feels entirely different from the other. Fast paced 'rage-collecting' in SCB compared to character-upgrades and leveling up in MK. I love both games.

Sorry, did I say it the other way around or something, or are you just pointing out that SCB came out first? Yes thank you, I'm aware of that. Problem is I think many of the votes here are based largely on that alone. I admit I was tempted to vote for SCB solely on the fact that it came first and deserves much of MK's credit. The fact that MK is even hanging in there in this poll speaks to what a quality game it is, despite it being a very blatant copy-job. People don't take kindly to copycats around here (me included), but I have to give credit where credit is due in terms of creating a quality game, and MK is most certainly a quality title.
