Nitrome strikes again, and this time it’s the fiendishly clever ‘YinYang“, a puzzle platformer that let’s you manipulate your character and his opposite, with a number of collaborative twists. Very cool, and super fun.
Too bad it’s a total ripoff from the earlier posted:
Specifically, this idea:
They didn’t even give the original inventor, Sean Howard, credit for it. =/

I can’t say that the concept of Negative Space doesn’t play a part in YinYang, but I’d stop short of saying ‘rip-off’. Nitrome has proven time and again to be chock full of inventive ideas, so I’m not willing to dismiss the idea that the concept of YinYang wasn’t reached independently of Howard’s post.
I’d be curious to see if Howard actually contacted the Nitrome crew to get an official response.
