A game that begins its description by bashing another game is an immediate turn-off. Just saying.

This game is a comedy, so it's not a serious reference.

The game pokes fun at itself too, within the in-game story, with references to their own graphics artist etc.

This is how I read that opening: "Are you tired of playing casual games? Then play our game, which is definitely not casual." Doesn't strike me as a bash at all.

Oh, and this is definitely worth picking up for US .99. As I wrote on the iPad thread, the game feels a bit like a TellTale point-and-click, but with a decent frame rate. The production values are excellent, and the voice acting is quite good. The writing is very self-referencial (in a Looney Toons sort of way), which may not be everybody's cup of tea --- so far it's gotten a couple of chuckles out of me....
