Ouya Game Copies Yoshi in Era’s Adventures

Ouya Game Copies Yoshi in Era's Adventures
The Ouya has finally arrived, bringing hundreds of games to its early adopters. Granted not all of these Android-based titles will be the next Mario, but success has never come from ripping off the competition. Somebody should have told that to the folks behind Era’s Adventures 3D, a game featuring an awfully familiar dino.

Created by andev Ltd., Era’s Adventures 3D could quite possibly be the pinnacle of lazy design. Not only does “Era” look a lot like Mario’s Yoshi, there are also sloppy textures as far as the eye can see. You know a game is bad when the HUD has typos like “Founded” in it.

Those looking for a good laugh (or feel a little masochistic) can download the title for $1.99 via Google Play.
