Banned Mario parody Kill the Plumber could come to the App Store in 2016
Change of clothes
Mario parody game Kill the Plumber - which Apple rejected from the App Store on copyright grounds - is set for a comeback next year.
The game is a reverse platformer, where you play as a variety of enemies who try to stop a video game hero from completing the level. By murdering him. It's funny and innovative.
Which was why it was a shame that Apple blocked the game from hitting iOS devices, saying it "includes content or features that resemble a well-known third-party material, Super Mario Bros".
Now, developer Tekitown is trying again - with new art and props, and - most importantly - a redesigned plumber who looks a lot less like Mario. Also, new heroes will appear including dudes based on Solid Snake and Gordon Freeman.
