This is crazy. I had this same idea a couple of years ago. I have no idea how to make a video game, so I'm glad someone else made this lol. I was gonna call it shameless clones. It's nice to see that someone else thought similar to me

They have been working on this one for awhile and I'm happy to see it's been finally released. I am surprised to see this released as a premium game. Cool

My screen name is misunderstood. I am not some arrogant person who thinks he's so cool. Cool, because I like cold weather and Pepper because I'm hot.

Ha! Great minds think alike! Title's pretty fancy, too.

Specifically for us, we wanted to address the issue about app store's poor curation. It was in development for a while, though, so some of its criticisms are a bit out-of-date.

Aw, thanks for following our development! If you don't mind me asking, what do you mean by being surprised at the game being a premium?

It was because for some reason I thought it was going to be f2p. I'm very happy you went with premium.

Those keen-eyed followers of Not a Clone may have noticed that a new build has been released for both the iOS and Android full-releases, as well as the demo releases on various web portals. What's new in these builds? Let's start with the changes in the full release.

Due to many requests, Not a Clone now supports iOS 9. We confess that the only reason iOS 10 was the only supported OS on release of the game was due to the fact that we haven't tested the game thoroughly on older devices. It would be really embarrassing for us to release a game that hardly runs on your device, so we took the cautious route. Fortunately, we have recently confirmed that the game runs smoothly on iPad 2 and iPhone 4S, so we marked the game to support iOS 9!

For Android, the animated start screen is back! That's right, this goofy title animation can be experienced in its full glory:



For both platforms, we updated the description of the Extra Life upgrade to have two possible entries. Here's the original, which is still in the game:



And here's the new description:



Why have two descriptions for a single upgrade? As it turns out, Not a Clone has some adoptive difficulty modifications: the first upgrade you earn from the tutorial actually changes depending on your score. For most people, they'll earn the Extra Life upgrade for free; for better skilled people, however, their first upgrade will be Blinged-Out Case. For the latter crowd, Extra Life does make an appearance on the shop later...but not as a free upgrade. Thus, the original description wouldn't work for these audience.

Incidentally, support the charity movement this weekend!

For the demo, we've basically updated the code base to match the release version of Not a Clone. Additionally, the Coming Soon dialog has now changed to Available Now, since the game is obviously released.

As mentioned in the Post-Mortem this week, we do have a ton of free updates planned for this game. For the first major update, which we estimate to be released during the holiday seasons, are more achievements. Some of them will reward prizes for achieving them, too! We're also planning on adding more microgames, including a few that will be unlocked by default. There will be more upgrades, of course, and a few convenience options will be added in, such as low-power mode. So we hope you look forward to those new changes.

So is this kind of like Wario Ware?

The only thing keeping me from buying right now is that over 30 games doesn't really sound like very much when they're 5 seconds each.

It's too late.

I didn't buy this when it came out because I felt like 30 micro games weren't enough for 4 bucks. I just got it anyway since more people are talking about it, and now I just feel bad for not buying right away. If you are a wario ware fan like me (wario ware and ww twisted are my two favorite gba games) buy this immediately. There have been a few wario ware wannabes over the years, but none have captured the fun or magic of the original. This does in spades. Don't let the seemingly low number of microgames turn you off. Much like Wario Ware, each game has different "tiers" of difficulty, which add to the overall variety. This is a highly polished premium game with a Nintendo level of quality. If that's not a ringing endorsement, I don't know what is.
