There are many games that should be removed from the eShop, such as:

And the same "developers" are doing this all this garbage and are planning to release it this year.

You would think that Nintendo may want to have the best top-notch quality titles in their platform, but some of those games can't even top the worse shovelware titles from Wii.

All this situation is even worse when the content is not original. Simply pathetic.

Very true. This game looks like it was made by following a default Unity tutorial, without adding any original content whatsoever. I love the WiiU and 3DS eShops, but I think the quality control needs to be improved a fair amount.

These basic sprites... why couldn't he just make his own lol. I personally create my own pixel art for my projects and it's not that difficult to learn how either. It's definitely not hard when your just creating basic sprites like these but creating animation is still a challenge for me but nothing in this generic game should be lol.

Crap template games. I would not call these guys "developers".

Step right up folks, with these amazing templates you too can become a mysterious and respected game developer. Don't worry, you don't need to know lick about game design, digital art, or even code, just swap the assets and press publish!
