I'm happy to present the second of two days of rip offs, knock offs and outright plagiarism from the worlds of film, television and video games. Whether motivated by greed or just plain laziness, just ripping off something that's already successful seems like a fairly straightforward process, so part of what's interesting about these things is how weird they get, especially when they're made over seas and adapted for local audiences. Today's lineup features a collection of not-so-super Mario games, an animated Korean Tron, a wannabe Bruce Lee going up against more unlicensed characters than you can shake a stick at and much, much more!
As you may or may not be aware, I've been writing and curated videos for Network Awesome for some time now, but this weekend marks the first full days I've ever programmed. It's the culmination of a lot of research and careful selection, so I hope you dig it!
