Gameloft is well known to steal video game concepts and bring out their own copies. The next game will be Crystal Monsters a fully worked out Pokémon clone that shall have 20 hours of gameplay and over 150 animals to catch.
That is a more than perky copy of Pokémon... Even some animals from the screenshots look like Pokémon.
Well I like the idea of Gameloft. Why not "steal" from original games and sell them for cheap? If the copy is good quality. A least Soul of Darkness was sometimes even better than the original Castlevanias for DS.
Pokemon isn't expensive.
Actually it has a closer resemblance to Medabots on the GBA, which is amazing looks like it's ripping of both them titles. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Me too. I like Gameloft. They bring great iPhone games and it is good that their cloning policy is coming to PSP Minis and DSiWare as well. Sure they will quit as soon as they lose their first lawsuit...
They're careful what they do, so as not infindge any copyright. And the games they produce are of good quality. If I had a DS, I'd probably buy this. It looks like it has better production values than the Pokemon games, nowadays.
I was hoping this was an iPhone game =( I've always wanted to play a pokemon game on the platform without having to download an emulator.
isnt all the fps a copy of wolfenstein3d?
Why would anyone want to put his face on a Pokémon via camera? That is just weird.
May be weird, but in a funny way, if you ask me.^^
and put it on a fake dog like pokemon. You were supposed to be able to put faces from the gameboy camera onto the n64 perfect dark multiplayer skins, but they left that out. I think its funny, but I will never play this game.
What use is it playing a Pokemon clone when you can just play Pokemon? I mean, it's on the same damn system...
Well it is 5 Buck vs 40 Bucks. You decide.
Well it is a quick download. Same concept as the past cell phone games. Buy it, if it is cheap, if it is good you will buy more, if it sucks you will hate Gameloft.
wow thats a very obvious copy of pkm, lets hope it doesn't happen something like in the past days...giana sisters anyone?
I want somebody to copy the mechanics of pokemon but have an interesting world with cool creatures. Maybe have some customization features in there too (like using experience to sharpen claws or build wing strength).
It has been done before and is called Dragon Quest Monsters: Jokers 1 & 2. Breedable Boss characters, x-breeding, cool characters and more.
Don't know why they'd want to steal as dog turd, but OK.
You know, with a creative enough team, this game could have been different enough to set itself away from Pokemon. Things that could have changed could be: Elemental attributes of the montsers. Rather than using traditional water, fire, grass, electric, etc, something new could have been used. Maybe breaking them down into species, like dinosaur, bird, amphibian, dragon, reptile, etc, then coming up with weaknesses from there. A combo system Rather than use PP (not sure if this game uses it), the could use MP Different art style (the one they're using reminds me of those Mega Man Battle Network games. Don't call it evolution, call it forward shifting! Maybe they can also reverse shift into previous forms and gain special abilities when doing so. Rather than one organization trying to take over the world, maybe have a monster that's deviated from its rightful path and trying to corrupt the good monsters into doing its evil bidding. He's currupted because he was part of an experiment thousands of years ago, put to sleep, and some virus injected into him just not decided to have an effect, wake him up and make him cause destruction The use of vehicles to travel to various locations; boats to travel to distant islands. Maybe even being able to travel through time and different dimensions. Seasons can play a role, so players will want to play year around..or maybe one season can last a week? idk Touch screen damage to different body parts ah, idk, but yeah so much could have been added to set this apart, haha.
I love the season (Like Zelda: Oracle of Seasons?) and different damage area ideas. Hopefully White and Black add some cool stuff. Hopefully.
"Gameloft is well known to steal video game concepts and bring out their own copies. " Must be owned by Sony. MOVE,Dual shock, Joystick, ect... Click Agree if you disagree, and click disagree if you agree!
I won't click either. I'll just take your bubbles.
Looks terrible lol
Nothing new here. Gameloft rips off a lot of games. Just look at their latest DSiWare, Soul of Darkness. It looks exactly like Castlevania.
That is what the news says, thats what I said. :)
If its anywhere near as good as Pokemon then i just might have to get it.
