Capcom rip off Twisted Pixels Splosion' Man?


Seem familiar?

Quote:
Last week, Capcom released a new game for Apple's iPhone and iPod Touch called MaXplosion, described as a "quirky, comical, retro-themed platformer" in a statement.Now the title is drawing accusations from studio Twisted Pixel, claiming the Capcom game borrows heavily from its Xbox Live Arcade game Splosion Man.

The official Twisted Pixel feed: "Wow Capcom, MaXplosion, huh....? Nice. Well, I guess imitation is the sincerest form of flattery."


Michael Wilford, CEO of Twisted Pixel: "Not sure what to say about MaXplosion. Pisses me off. Guess we're just gonna have to make a better iPhone game than them. Shouldn't be hard."
Your thoughts? I think it's a complete joke to be honest and of all people it's Capcom. A shame that Twisted Pixel are too small to really fight them to be honest.



I did search for this topic to see if it had been posted and nothing came back.

That's a complete joke.
Style, music, gameplay, character... all basically the same. I bet Twisted Pixel are pissed off!

Maybe they should just stick to revamping/redoing/continuing their own franchises instead of trying to 'create' new ones.

How low will Capcom go? This is a plain carbon copy of the far superior 'splosion man, give credit to Twisted Pixel or take it off the marketplace.

I'm pretty sure that they could be sued for this.... i mean this is basically the same thing as splosion man!
Just a few changes here and there and now fat scientists.

They can absolutely, TP has said they won't simply becuase they lack the size to be able to or something.

What for a poor rip-off is this crap for iPhone? Is Capcom serious about this? Shame on you and hail to Twisted Pixel for their great IP!

It's such a bad rip-off that I'm sure Twisted Pixel would have no problem against Capcam over it. Couldn't be more obvious that they've tried to copy and failed miserably at that.

That is just sad, even more sad to know that such a big name company like CAPCOM, to do something like this and thnk they can get away with it. If i was TP i wouldnt take this laying down. They should fight for it. I believe they can win no matter how small in number they are. Lets hope they go for it.

I had heard of MaXplosion before, but this is my first time seeing any actual gameplay. This coming from the company that brought us Mega Man, Street Fighter and Resident Evil. They didn't need to rip Twisted Pixel off; they could have come up with something fun and creative on their own.

Plagiarism.

It's not surprising when you look at what happens to their franchises.

That is a low blow.....This is bad for the gaming industry for sure this is an example of the big francises trying to ripp off the little companies. If capcom did this to an EA game they know they would be sued.

Capcom: We'll give him a tail and teeth. I'm sure nobody will notice, right?

Yeah but it's only a few months. I've seen one 6 YEARS old being dug up.

This game looked fun to me but it was so difficult, it played it for awhile and stopped. I just sucked at it.
