Era's Adventure 3D. Not so much a rip-off in terms of gameplay, but the character is basically the same.

It's amazing what people try to sell on these mobile stores.

These are basically assets (and gameplay?) from a physics engine "many boxes" demo, together with a Yoshi model ripped off from who knows where and an absolutely terrible HUD. I'm willing to bet that even my (unreleased, <5% finished) Android game had more effort put into it.

Couldn't they have at least attempted to change some of the art on Yoshi so that he does't look completely identical?

In all seriousness I'm sure this is just a placeholder model they grabbed from somewhere, and not indicative of an actual game.

It doesn't AFAIK

At least the game doesn't look as awful as 3D Cartoon Land from iOS. Ugh.

Chris B - February 28, 2013 - Motorola Droid II with version 1.1.3
GOTY 2013

Forget GTAV, Era is the game of the year! Featuring incredible visuals and gameplay that is accessible by casuals yet complex enough to satisfy the hardcore, this is truly a masterpiece. The story is masterfully crafted rivaling amazing tales such as Metroid: Other M, and is a passionate metaphor for our own inner pursuit of freedom. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you might even learn something new about yourself. Era's detailed figure renders like magic on my droid 2, and the entire product runs flawlessly at 60 FPS in 1080P (you'd need a $2000 PC to compare). I have never seen the incredible bokeh DoF effect or subsurface-scattering used like in this game, the pinnacle of graphical achievement. Crytek could learn a thing or two from this dev. Touchscreen controls are a breeze, with the left thumb used like an analog stick to control the majestic dinosaur through vivid forest lands. The right thumb is used to perform the leap technique, useful for jumping across deadly pits and boxes. In addition, you can use Era's signature fireball attack to rack up points - can YOU make it to the top of the leaderboards? Only one way to find out, purchase the full version of this game TODAY!

Ugly ugly... I love indie devs but this is not what I'm expecting when thinking about it. And clearly I wouldn't call them indie devs but not talented disrespectful people.

This is not creativity, this is just a poor rip-off. They don't respect copyright and more important this type of games is making the "real" games less valuable for some people who are just thinking : "Why would I pay 50$ for a Nintendo game when I can have the almost same game for a lot cheaper..." or they go further and pirate the original game.

Edit : it's the same when I see people making their kids playing with pirated games on their NDS... seriously how do they think? Is it a good way to explain the real value of things?

While the game looks horrible, I'd like to have the Yoshi model (which as far as I can see it is custom made, I can't come up with a game where Yoshi looks exactly like that) to make my own rip-off game with it (for me and friends, not to sell it, of course). Retro isn't making a Banjo-styled 3D platformer with Yoshi, so I need to do it myself ;).

I doubt the graphics is the reason why people are calling it crap.

They should have had Mario riding on Yoshi shooting those lasers.

Unity has greatly raised the bar for the tech in crappy rip off games
