Even though the game might not be a 10/10 (I would give it a 8/10) I feel the need to rate it that high because certain people need to sit on their high horse defending another game from the same genre.
I agree that the game is inspired by Bit Runner, it does not change the fact, that is is a difficult and fun challenge - it got its own unique levels and though the art style is inspired it is different and got translated well into a 3D world.
Every book, every movie and every game got somehow inspired by another game or at least influenced. As far as I know this was the alternative on the XBox to supply console gamers with a similar but fun experience.
The game got new mechanics and a different look, it's own assets etc. It is hard work to create a game, even IF you orientate yourself on other games on the market or try to use them as a blueprint for your game - you still gotta create all the assets, code the game and balance it well - and it is well balanced.
I have played Bit Trip Runner myself and it felt in no moment like this game was "ripping off" something - it was a different experience and a different game. Both are very well balanced and are fun to play.
IF you want to go around and wish for a single developer to be sued (which will .not. happen for all of you who clearly have no idea how copyright works) because he "ripped-off" Bit Trip Runner - go to Bit Trip Runner and shot at him because he "ripped-off" The Impossible Game.
Of course everyone is entitled to their own opinion, and this is mine. Its a different game with a similar theme and known mechanics. You can go ahead and play this fun game and enjoy yourself or behave like a childish fanboy and be mad. Your choice.
