Anybody who knows videogames is familiar with Nintendo's Mario franchise, the most popular in the industry. Known as the grandfather of platformer games, Mario did a lot of things right: catchy music, a wide variety of level design and gameplay mechanics, power-ups, and a steady learning curve. Ricky, which is a blatant knock-off of this classic series, is quite the opposite.
To start, the game steals ideas straight from the Mushroom Kingdom. Some of these include the rounded hills with eyes, 1UP mushroom icon, pipes with Piranha Plants, and Koopa Troopas. Even Ricky himself looks like an obsessive Mario fanboy. In fact, there is really nothing original at all about this game.
