What is this world coming to?
Gavin Shapiro's 'Squares 2' sits at 3.66 and never won any award.
This gets daily 2nd and sits at 3.79 when it's a blatant copy of all the ideas used in that game.
Even the bonuses/penalties are exactly the same!
Just the player now has 9 lives and the square has been switched for the cat, operated with keyboard controls.
Personally, I don't think the keyboard control suits the game as well and 9 lives are far too many for a game of this sort. The frantic 1-life games of Squares 2 have much more onus on a decent performance and feel far more 'pure' an arcade experience.
The cat's nice looking, I suppose.
But I think it's terrible copying ideas like that and pifering them for commercial products.
