Endless Platform Jumper (Tilt & Tap) 'Kirby Jump' $.99 ==> Free




It's pretty new (12 days) and free for the first time. Fun and challenging to play on small iOS devices (not so ideal for iPads) because you have to tilt and to tap (aim) exactly.

I don't understand 100% why the short main thread has been closed. Obviously because the main character is a rip-off? To protect Nintendo? (tA cares about Nintendo? tA is Nintendo's advocate?)

Anyway… As said before: Nice to play if you don't mind a tilt & tap combo and maybe the software will be pulled soon.

I dont think it's about TA on nintendo at all. More like TA doing its part (albeit small) about not encouraging these sort of actions. Copying somebody's IP like this is pretty low, and we know it's just a scheme to get attention for whatever purpose.

As for Tilt and Tap games, there's a ton of those on the appstore that are pretty good. Doodle Jump, Mega Jump, Sonic Jump, Ooga Jump... And then there's the indie clones as well. There isnt a shortage of the genre.

TA had no problem with the blatant Patapon clone.
