"Cryodrone" App Features a Shameless Mega Man.EXE Rip-Off
"Cryodrone: The Flying Jet Robot" is a free game currently available on the iOS App Store and Android Market. As you can see from the above images, it features characters bearing more than a passing resemblance to Mega Man.EXE. The game itself shares nothing in common with Battle Network -- but jiminy crickets, it sure is rubbish.
Ugly sprites, looping music, in-game ads... this one has it all. The real kicker is the option to play as other "characters", which are nothing more than recolors of the same guy. Naturally, they cost real money to use. Yeah, no thanks.
Shady titles are all but common on digital store fronts. Until some actual quality control is set in place, all we can do is blow the whistle and try to get this stuff out of sight.
