The creator said he was fine with it.

He said he's happy he has inspired someone.
That he knew it would only be a matter of time, and he's happy it's an indie dev doing it.

its pretty much an outlet for all the Pocket God sheeple looking for something new... it got pretty crappy reviews on the US Store... i doubt it will be up for long, who knows tho

its only top paid because its in the top 25 and it looks similar to PG, so ppl are picking it up. but yes, it is getting rather negative ratings. last time i looked average rating was 2.5 stars. so itll pass soon, cant wait for it to get off the charts

they were just trying to come off as above it and better for it in the public eye. if they're human, they'd be rightfully pissed off, if not only because they themselves wanted to do an underworld version of pocket god. but some other person took the idea, ripped them off completely, and is now making good money with it. they even had the nerve to just blatantly call it "pocket devil." it's an obvious attempt to ride the coat tails of a successful product, and it's a pretty scummy move no matter how you slice it.

as a side note, i've never even played pocket god or pocket devil, so this is just from my outside point of view.

Yeah I was very disappointed. I bought it thinking it would be a darker version of PG but of course it was junk. The graphics are bad, its definitely not as smooth as PG, and there's only like six things you can do. Don't buy it.

Super excited for Pocket Heroes!
