Pocket Devil – And You Thought Google Wave Was Confusing

Pocket God Ouchie Our beef with Pocket God is no secret … it’s a bit too PG-13 for us. All this sadistic gameplay leaves us yearning for more. Throw in some South Park, mix in a little Beavis and Butt-Head … why can’t we tear off a pygmy’s arm with a shark? Heck, we got so worked up over this, we even ran an article last April called … A Better Pocket God.

So imagine our reaction when checking out the Top Paid Apps and discovering our “Better Pocket God” came to fruition … and better yet, holding the #2 spot in Top Paid Apps ($ cha ching $). Needless to say, our jaws hit the floor and we thought … “bunch of fargin iceholes at Bolt Creative – they finally got the boils to release a Pocket God sequel” … Pocket Devil.

Pocket-Devil-no-2

Well needless to say, we are stoked for the Pocket God sequel. The pygmies are perfectly transformed into little devils … they bear a striking, yet sinister resemblance.

The splash screens are spot on … both incorporating their game’s characters and respective logos … even the loading indicator is duplicated.

Both games take place on an island and have awesome erupting volcanoes spitting out fiery lava that rain down upon the inhabitants.

And genius of Bolt Creative to leverage their well established and successful brand Pocket God by simply giving the name a polar opposite and evil twist … God becomes Devil – strong! Heck, Pocket Devil could become a case study for perfect marketing execution … extending one’s brand to create immediate value and recognition when establishing a new product line. Bravo!

Whoa – hold on a second! WTF … this ain’t no freaking Pocket God sequel. This is a curiously similar game, made by a totally different publisher, Eyedip LLC. Huh? Very confusing!

Now before all the Pocket Devil fan-boys get their panties in a bundle … let’s be clear, we have NO problem with developers taking the Pocket God concept and running with it. That is awesome! The more the merrier – competition breeds excellence which ultimately benefits us, the consumer. And there are plenty of applications influenced by Pocket God that achieve their own uniqueness. For example, the Malevolent and Knights Onrush apps … both inspired by Pocket God, yet remain different.

Malevolent_Title

But Pocket Devil is annoying as Paris Hilton. It’s the way Eyedip went about creating their Pocket God inspired app. Too close for comfort bro … like kissing your cousin … totally freaking creepy. For example, those sinister devils which bear a striking resemblance to Pocket God pygmies … kiss kiss cousin Lola Rose … ewww! The evil twist of the title God to Devil … kiss kiss cousin Daisy Boo … ewww!

landingcomparison_FINAL

runningcomparison_FINAL

All these similarities beg the question – are unsuspecting Pocket God fans purchasing Pocket Devil thinking the game is a Pocket God sequel from Bolt Creative? And if so … is Pocket Devil riding the coattails of Pocket God’s success and thus not succeeding on their own merit?

Now slow down fan-boys … these questions are not whack. Just look at Pocket Devil’s user ratings – 2½ stars, the lowest rating in the Top 10 paid apps. And what, you think everyone is as sharp as surgeon’s scalpel (especially considering the majority of Pocket God’s customers are young kids who can be easily confused)? Read these examples of Pocket God fans who purchased Pocket Devil thinking a sequel was released by Bolt Creative.

Pocket-Devil-Comments-F

Of course you can argue stupidity on the buyer’s part … but it still begs the question … is Pocket Devil succeeding on their own merit or is their game so close in resemblance to Pocket God, that consumers think it’s an actual sequel from Bolt Creative?

And by the way … all you cousin-kissers … cut that shit out … it’s freaking gross!

    Sad… pocket devil as a cheap knock off of Pocket God (Don't argue this fact, you know it's true, otherwise you're a retard), Pocket God is the only real good deity app, this one is just a dumb wannabe. And how the hell is Pocket God PG-13? It doesn't have any off the sadistic (Notice the correct usage of the word) features like in pocket devil *ahem* like the bloody guillotine, gallows for hanging, fish for impaling, etc… Just an all around lame app.

    Pocket God > pocket devil

    dude, come on … spearing a pygmy in the gut is not “PG-13”? LOL … we'd
    consider Devil “R” … then again, what the hell do we know, we never hit
    the movies as we're always writing krapp(s) 😉

    Obviously a rip-off. Still have to love the following user-review from above:

    “It's nothing like pocket god and a complete rip off” 😀

    Yeah I bought Pee-Devil, I admit it. Resisted it forever as a PG fan, but wanted to see what the big deal was. It's really bad now. Boring. Hoping updates get bette ONLY bcuz I wasted my dollar so I'd like it to be worth it… Has potential, but even if it does get better, it always will be acres behind PG for stealing their idea… Thumbs down for that alone.

    I bought Pee Devil when it was high on the charts. I said I wouldn't not wanting to turn on my Pocket God ppl, but I caved in and decided to see all the hubub. So yeah, wasted my dollar cuz it really sucks, but I'm interested (especially since I spent the money) to see if they'll get better with time. Hopefully so. No matter what tho, they ripped of Pocket God and for that they lose the war they started before it even started. Kinda like the real devil against the real God. Just a losing battle, but taking as many victims as possible before it's all over. My metaphor rocked. Admit it! 😉

    i almost bought PD thinking it was a PG sequel as well … but then i thought “no … i would have heard about this … the would have been advertising for it.” and after studying the graphics for a little while i thought this is NOT PG quality, Bolt can do much better then this.” they would not have released a shit ass graphic game like this. and reading the description about what you can do in the game is not up to PG standards either. If it was a PG sequal they would have held back until they had more things to do, i mean theyre a freaking master at add new mini games and things like that. this add is seriously sad and not even worth $.99.

    right on …. we think a lot of people were in a similar position … the
    fact that Devil is so close in every facet of the game simply causes a lot
    of confusion … just too close for comfort, so to speak
