After Super Mario 3D Land, Pokémon and Mario Kart on iOS, and Pullblox and Yoshi on Android, another great Nintendo rip-off hits the mobile market! Krazy Kong: Race in Jungle Temple by Emoticon LLC. Here's how it's described:

Check out this fun and addictive kong running and throwing banana game.

Jump to dodge obstacles in the jungle while throwing bananas to destroy enemies. Don`t forget to use your bombs to kill all enemies on screen. Fun for all ages.

Try it out today!

I wonder, why people keep asking Nintendo to go mobile, if basically all its line-up is already on those devices? :P

See, their Donkey Kong has a red tie.

Now look at our Krazy Kong; he doesn't have a tie at all!

It's not the same thing!

It's not the same character, it's not the same content... etc. Either way, it's always nice to see what this bastion of creativity and gaming nirvana that is the App Store I keep getting told about is like.

Not when they get sales, then all their money is taken away from them when their app is pulled for copyright infringement. (Or at least, that's how Google does it on Android, IIRC.)

I love how the trees in the background are completely different art styles. Pretty sure they must have lifted them from different sources and just threw 'em in a pile.

The grammar of their description hurts me more personally than the existence of this game, although that's pretty damn sad.

The character might be a rip-off, but the text suggests that the game is just a runner?

I just automatically assume that any of these rip-offs are runner clones.

Actually, Nintendo just proved that King Kong's scenario and characters were in the public domain, which Universal... the company that sued Nintendo proving that they were in a previous court case. Nintendo never admitted to ripping off King Kong, but they did prove that even if they did, Universal had no legal leg to stand because King Kong was public domain.

I... I really don't understand this. Can somebody expain why people even bother to do this? Like, you're never going to get away with it for an elongated amount of time, and if you do, all of your funds will probably be frozen or chased after anyway. ....Right?

I suppose a better question is how it even gets through Apple certification....

If Rare were still making the DK games I bet they would've beaten these fellows to the Krazy Kong punch years ago.
But that Kong is Krazy all right, without the tie he's nothing but Naked Kong and he's loving it.

I'm assuming Apple just gives the benifit of the doubt that a game is actually licensed. That way, when it gets pulled, they an keep the sales money.

Seriously? That is like a direct rip off of Donkey Kong. Nintendo should send a cease and desist.

It's terrible, I just played it. Unresponsive and chock full of ads. I became part of the problem.

I bought that Super Mario World rip off that was on the App Store a few years ago out of shire curiosity. It was like a hacked rom. Omario or something. It's not on the App Store any more.
