Description

What if you were given a backdoor pass to a site filled with the hottest mobile games currently climbing the charts? What if just by playing the games well enough, you were able to earn money to buy even more games? Would you jump at the chance or just let it pass? Not A Clone is a frantic exercise in quick-thinking and even quicker responding. Featuring over two dozen original and parody micro-games, you must play through them one after another, chaining your successes into the highest score imaginable for possible fame and prizes. Beat your friends to the top of the leaderboards! Earn Zeni to purchase more games! You have five seconds to get through each micro-game that is thrown at you by following the instructions that appear on the screen. The further you go, the harder it gets. How long will you last before your device runs out of power? Will you earn enough to unlock your next challenge? Will you know which games are being parodies and which games are not a clone?

History

Not A Clone was originally created by Taro Omiya as part of #OneGameAMonth game jam in 2014. Intended to be a satirical commentary on the mobile app stores, the web game became a surprise hit on GameJolt, prompting the developers to flesh out the original concept into a new mobile app.
