So will Touch Physics be removed? It is a pretty blatant copy

Also, Hudson is a very underrated dev IMO

This looks like Touch Physics. 100%. Which one had this idea at first?

Regardless of the timing issue, the game is from Hudson. And I have some problems with games of Hudson. I can see that they learn from their previous games and that they get better with time, but the only usable game of Hudson was Puzzloop. All other games had severe issues and Hudson showed no interest at all to fix these issues:

NeoSameGame seems to use 24kbit MP3 files for sound and music - you just can't stand it, it's horrible!

Bomberman (which I normally love) uses a control scheme, which makes faster levels a pain.

Aqua Forest is still so sluggish, that you can't play it.


I really hope that they get this game right with the release, because regarding their older releases the only thing one can see is, that they don't fix issues.

My jaw dropped when the guy in the video was drawing the car. However, like Touch Physics, I think it's really easy to complete the levels.

Crayon Physics is the original game

And I do have to agree about Bomberman. One of my favorite all time game series, and the controls aren't exactly optimal, although I think it's pretty good for any touchscreen device. Bpmberman games are much faster with a D-pad though

Yeah I know, but they have made some great apps for the iPhone, and are a company that's been around for a couple decades

The 19.95$ price tag for a game seems way too high for me.
