Exploring Youtube and watching mecha videos, somehow I found this thing that is supposed to be some sort of upcoming Mexican Facebook game.
Anyway, this shit I found was so full of crack I decided to write a quick and short post about it.
A little research told me it was a Mexican game. Further research told me about other Mexican games like Taco Master and Sky Hero. I installed those and found them to be good, imaginative examples on how to make a nice game with a simple concept; they are fun mobile games for everybody.
The demo below, however, looks to be the opposite of fun.
So just what are we looking at, you ask?
Well, that’s a Karmatron game.
Oh, now you want to know what a Karmatron is?
I wanted to know too, because I never heard of that shit before. Well, thanks to St. Google, I learned it’s basically a Mexican Super Robot comic book that has not been relevant or popular in over thirty years.
The interesting aspect of this
garbage Karmatron thing is that it is defined by how much plagiarism
is on it. A quick Google search proves the author of that comic book stole a Dr
Strange cover and the full issue taking advantage that Dr. Strange has never been published in Mexico; it steals concepts and designs from Star Wars and Star Trek and other
movies like Conan, Excalibur, The Dark Crystal and many more. The creator also
lifted designs from Transformers, Mazinger Z, Getter Robo, Gundam and Robotech/Macross and also snatched designs from other Mexican properties, too.
|You could say Karmatron's author took homages a little too far...|
So… plagiarism aside, that game thing seems it will only be for Facebook but even so, there are good Facebook games.
What surprises me is that this lame shit has fans that created a fanmade intro, which sucks as much as the game and apparently copies from Star Wars, Gundam and Robotech/Macross as much as the comic seems to have done.
Plagiarism in the comic births plagiarism in the fanmade cartoon.
