Closest thing to Viewtiful Joe?

Just curious if ther's some sort of iPhone game similar to Viewtiful Joe. Don't really have much else to say, kind of self-explanatory . Give your suggestions and I'll be sure to check out the games.

There's nothing quite like Viewtiful Joe (awesome game), but Chop Chop Ninja definitely reminded of it. You may also want to check out Tap Fu and Castle Fantasy.

Alright, will try them when I have a chance.


Just out of curiosity, graphic-wise what's closest?

Probably Tap-Fu. But it doesn't have any of the platforming elements. Castle Fantasy is also 2.5D and has tons of platforming, but thematically it feels different, and it's not as chaotic (though still fun).

I thought of OMG Pirates too, but it has little to no interaction with the environment. Viewtiful Joe has a strong platforming element to it, as well as some environmental puzzles.

I really don't like omg pirates!, but it could be just me. I didn't really think of viewtiful joe though.

Chop chop ninja on the other hand, is an awesome game.
it's suited perfectly for the iPhone.

That's the one I'd go with.
