Joyland Bounce (Gamesmith) Bounce on Ripoff

Hey, this new game was released last night and nobody made a thread. What do you guys and gals think should I get it if I already have bounce on?

LoL "Ripoff" might be a little strong a word... how about "Copy"?

Everything in the appstore is a copy (zombieville/mummys attack/sparta), but whats good about it is the guy copying will do whatever it takes to get recognized (offer it for 0.99 or even free to get attention over the established one) which will spur the original bounce on to lower prices since they arent the only game in town anymore.

I'm going to TOFTT on this one. I'll be back after the gym with some impressions on this one.

Actually, Joyland Bounce offer a different gameplay experience - from my publisher's point of view, it's actually better than Bounce On :-)

In Bounce On, your character rolls on the floor and jumps - more in a traditional platformer fashion.

In Joyland Bounce, your character floats, which is more tricky to control - hence more fun. Plus the graphics are outstanding!

But I won't agree that Bounce On is a neat little game, if you liked it, you will definitely enjoy Joyland Bounce.

Promo codes are available for website admins.

Thanks,

Hello Simon,

I take back my initial comments about the game being a bounce on rip off. The game is actually really fun and I like how you move the little fellow around the levels. It's really similar to being more like rolando, but I don't regret the purchase I just made on this game, thus far.

barely anything on the appstore is what I'd call original, just my opinion, there are good controls but not new ideas

That's a cute little ball. Can anyone tell us what the gameplay is like. Is it like dizzy bee utilizing the accelerometer? Or what?

The screenshots look good. I'd love to see some video of this one.

EDIT:
Thanks for the video Spiff, this looks NOTHING like bounce on, except the character is a ball.

I've been away for awhile, but I'm back.
