I kind of think it looks pretty cool, and while it uses maze which is similar to Edge, I don't think it's an Edge ripoff. In fact, it has more elements similar to Sokoban and Robo.

I cannot see any similarities between this and Edge.

Similar, very similar but some of the gameplay elements aren't the same. If you could roll the snowball-guy over blocks then yeah it'd be pretty obvious it's a rip-off.

Perhaps Edge was an... inspiration?

its not really an edge rip off imo, but i never played the full version of that game

That actually looks rather enjoyable. Didn't much remind me of edge except for the fact that it's an isometric maze you roll around in -- but the same can be said for a lot of games.

when there are 1000's of games it's not going to be uncommon to see games that are similar in visual style, map style and control.

You never know, they have could have started this way before edge. Or maybe it was similar, edge came out, and they've used some of the bits of edge that work really well (say, holding down finger to continue movement...)

There were tons of isometric cube based games before edge

I looked on the devs website, and it says he started the game nearly a year ago, before the app store even opened, but ran into various hindrances that greatly slowed production...I'm guessing that is long before edge development began

For those interested, the website is buzzabit.com

Absolutely nothing like Edge whatsoever. But it does look it could be an awesome game when it's released! Nice find.
