foembjump is a ripoff of doodlejump is a ripoff of icy tower is a rip off of OMG!!!!
(for reference, even I made an unfinished similar game, only knowing icy tower at that time)
There already were lots and lots of games out there following the same concept. Since this was and is not a secret, I guess foemb is as much a ripoff as the many pong and pacman and wolfenstein ripoffs.

Wolfenstein means Lykopetra in greek.

A bit off-topic here, but kind of related.

Ages back I made this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eD-PD1EOxlE It's einklang + extrawelt's 'the beauty' demo, just run through a simple volumetric renderer.

This morning I got a message from youtube, telling me:

Your video, Demo to timecube 2 (Einklang / Extrawelt - the Beauty) , may include content that is owned or administered by this entity:
Entity: Believe Content Type: Sound Recording

Is there any truth to that? If 'Believe' own the rights to the soundtrack then it's obviously fine, but if they don't they can fuck right off if they want to earn money by showing ads over the video ;)

Fair enough then :) I'd checked on discogs and didn't see believe listed, so i figured it looked a bit shifty. Thanks!

The prod actually has a license-notice at the end ;-)
