Looks like a super bland Arowana Mall, ink like substance drips out of the gun... you use it to claim turf to win... This is absolutely disgusting. Nintendo, please sue the crap out of this. I would expect this type of rip off from an indie dev or as a dumb mini game in minecraft, but from a huge corporation like Disney to straight up rip off Nintendo? You got major balls Disney.
Have you heard of Color Wars? https://www.youtube.com/wat... It predates Splatoon by years. Although using the words "squid wars" is just a marketing ploy.
That game was actually never finished and was a simple prototype. In fact the game is much different and has a capture flag element with colors. You can't deny that this is being made because splatoon. :p
A prototype that never made it to market that uses capture the flag elements as its base game type? Dude, that's not a splatoon pre-date no matter how much you spin it.XD
Either way the map is a copy of the Splatoon map Arowana Mall.
If Color Wars is very different to Splatoon then is this little ToyBox demo game not also very different? Maybe the map style is one of the maps from it, but the game itself doesn't seem to be like Splatoon at all, you seem to colour whole areas in 1 go. Also I'm not actually sure this was made by Disney themselves, you do know that Infinity has a Toybox mode where people can make their own games and levels and stuff? Am sure if you are going to look around people have made little games that were inspired by other actual games as well, in Disney Infinity but also in other game creation tools...
Your an idiot, this game mode wasnt even made by Disney and splatoon stole its idea from Tony Hawks Pro Skater anyways, and Splatoon is horrble.
"Disney Interactive has added a new developer-created downloadable Toy Box game to Disney Infinity 3.0 in the form of ‘Squid Wars’" ..who's the idiot?
Riiiight, because Tony Hawk had you painting turf while turning into a squid to move faster. Who the hell are you trying to kid, kid? Get back under the bridge with the rest of the trolls.
That looks so lame...........
Well, it's just a homage, dude. No big deal.
Wow that was hard to get through that video. If the hole game has music like that I would have to kill my self listening to that for hours.
Can't contain my OCD. Player drove me nuts in the video (the music made me wanna barf).
Every time a dev does this, it lends strength to Nintendo's reason for keeping so silent about new projects. They never talk about a lot of their stuff in advance because they're afraid of others taking their ideas. And DI took one of their ideas not long after release, here, so we really can't blame Nintendo for keeping mum about stuff like the NX, now.XD
Spot on Master Monkey. I'm at your service.
HAHA. What a terrible imitation.
reminds me as much of territories from Tony Hawk games as it does of splatoon.
I'm so sick of everybody always stealing from Nintendo it's bullshit
Looks like bantha foodoo. You know Splatoon is big when its already getting poorly made imitations. lol Someone on youtube said it best. YOU'RE A LAWSUIT. lmfao I kid Disney and Nintendo a good friends. Anyway how anyone can argue and say this is anything other than a rushed Splatoon clone is beyond me. You're just not being honest.
That looked so bad! Squid Wars... I don't see the squids nor the kids. Obviously just called that because of Splatoon popularity. Rip-off arguments aside, it just looks like an awful game. Is there no vertical axis for aiming, only lateral? That's so cheap. It's purely effortless. And how the you actually claim territory... it's just looks so cringeworthy.
This is merely one sample of hundreds of user/deveoper created games from Infinity 3.0. While it's not something I would knowingly subject myself to(the song does test the limits of sanity), the point is that it was created entirely with the tools in the toybox mode. I've played some really great creations and a quite a few not so great. If you have not played Disney Infinity, trust me when I say this no grand conspiracy to steal Nintendo's idea, it's one of hundreds of toybox games that users and developers have posted for download. There are a ton of attepts to emulate or recreate other gaming moments. Some are pretty cool, some...not so much.
Well said. DI is pretty decent, but this proves how horrible some of DI can be. There are some pretty good ones, but this one's at the bottom of the heap lol
This pisses me off. Really Disney? Really... I hope Nintendo sues ur ass.
Read post above you. No conspiracy here. Just a sad attempt at using DI toy box mode.
Wow that was horrible! Not even close to splatoon quality, and calling it squid wars proves how much of a rip off it is. If Splatoon is a full course meal, this is the diarrhea of a week old mc Donald's meal.
7.8/10 Too much Splatoon
I don't know why dev does this. They try to emulate, ripoff or do a knock off of Nintendo successful titles. Most of the time they don't even put on Nintendo system. Even when their games are inspired or trying to be like Nintendo.
