Capcom Mobile's MaXplosion Suffering From Identity Crisis?

Apparently Capcom Mobile's MaXplosion for iOS devices is suffering from a bit of an identity crisis. It bears remarkable resemblance to a certain XBLA game. Do you know it? You probably do, it's a 'Splosion Man clone!

Developer Mike Henry of Twisted Pixel, developers of 'Splosion Man, expressed his disappointment over Twitter regarding footage of MaXplosion, calling it a "complete theft" and other such pleasantries in a string of tweets.

"MaXplosion gameplay video makes me sad. If you're going to outright steal a game, you should at least understand what makes it fun," he said, later adding that, "Borrowing is great. Hell, we do it all the time. But that game is a complete theft."

"Best part is, we originally pitched @Splosion_Man to Capcom and they said no."

Watch the footage below of a stage from MaXplosion and tell me that resemblance isn't uncanny and totally not a coincidence.
