The free browser game Pockie Ninja was originally released in China, with a slight success overnight. After Shanghai-based Dream Network developed this Japanese Styled online game characterized by 2D cute and lovely avatars like Naruto and Bleach, a group of Chinese online games publisher hammered out the regional licenses to distribute this Anime online game on different regions. Thus far, there has been over 10 millions of registered user in China.
In January 6, 2011, HangZhou-based NGames announced the first release for international version of Pockie Ninja, changing the original name Pocket Ninja, or Little Ninja to Pockie. After all, the folks behind DDtank, and Caesary just translated Chinese title 小小忍者 to this official name.
In Pockie Ninja, you role play as a little Ninja to complete quests, compose equipment, raise pets, and even you can capture a slave as your Pet, which has been blamed as an offence to human dignity. This so called Slave System is very popular in China, which can be found in many browser games such as Heroes of Kung Fu, Kung Fu Knights, Edragon, and etc.
If you found a game with a tie to your favorite game franchises yet featuring a mix of MMO, and addictive features with micro-transaction business model, chances are such game is made from Chinese developers. For example, Heroes of Might and Magic has been made for an MMO genre under the title of HOMM Online, Microsoft’s Age of Empires Online has been ripped off by many other Chinese games Evony, Ministry of War. What is even worse, World of Warcraft has been copied from all respects in the form of World of Lordcraft. Why do I mention such annoying things here? Because Pockie Ninja is just a direct copy of Chinese free mmorpg Zodiac Online, featuring Quest System, Arena System, and Upgradable Weapons. With some additional elements like ranking, challenge and graphics redesign in Pockie Ninja, you are never feeling new to this free browser game Pockie Ninja. Even the publisher Ngames said this anime styled game is published by an award-winning “publisher”.
Let’s see the game description from Ngames Ltd.
Pockie Ninja is an anime-based browser game that features one character, multiple classes, which changes the traditional notion that one character can only play one class. In this game, you can choose from hundreds of cartoon characters, exclusive class and hidden skills. Lovely images are never identical. Besides, you can enjoy the fun of using different characters and diversified skills. Welcome to the fantastic world of Pockie Ninja and start an unique Journey.
Other than common browser game that simply combine dialogue with graphics, Pockie Ninja uses more direct visual images to enrich the whole gaming experience. Meanwhile, stunning special effects made battles more cheerful and enjoyable.
I did not know exactly how the game worked well in China, but for those who are hating turn-based battle MMO or browser games will not love this game. Even it should be reconsidered if the game graphics are supposed to be copyright infringed. After all, Naruto and Bleach have been used in Pockie Ninja.
