Goro platformer is free

Goros quest is free and it's a kirby like platformer. Speaking of which. Do u guys think if someone ported kirbys yarn to the app store but changed names and Kirby to some other character apple would approve it?

Naw, dot dot heroes proved it's possible. And the iPhone 4 and iPad definitely could handle the graphics. Plus if it was marketed right imagine how much it would make and it might even make nintendo lose money.

It would take a long time to get the port ready. And even if it could get done, there is such a slim chance it'd get by it's crazy. Nescaline, Nintendo DS emulator, they were lucky. But just recently, Moral Decay, a way awesome run n' gun got rejected just for religion references. And if Kirby got approved, it'd be gone in a day or less. I would LOVE to see it, but it will NEVER be.

I mean if they kept everything the same but changed all character names and the games name and changed or took out cut scenes. Doesn't gameloft basically do this?

Nintendo craps gold bars. They don't lose a penny when someone puts out a copy-cat product.
