Rodents Revenge! And I played it so much, too. Loved that game!

A bit obscure for a shirt, imo, so I wouldn't buy it...but it is a good shirt nonetheless!

I loved that game too! I wish they'd remake it for newer systems. I could be totally out of the loop though...they haven't already remade it, have they? Oh, and I would totally wear this. :P

I thought about this issue, but I don't really see this as a world- it is a maze, and what is shown is a map of the maze. Although it is clearly a reference to a game, the map itself is my own design and isn't taken from any of the levels in the game- ultimately it is up to woot to decide what they think, but that was my reasoning. If the map were drawn in different colors, it wouldn't even be a question, so from a map standpoint, I don't think it is a fictional world I didn't create.

Every week there will be doubts on his thread. Every week he'll give reasons. It's like playing COD, do the same thing again and again and expect different results :P

Nice. I've always wanted to figure out how to work Rodents Revenge into a shirt design of some sort. I like the difference of the closer, 3D blocks versus the traditional appearance on the map. It takes just a moment before you get it.

I think it would a been nice to somehow fit more blocks into the design and maybe a wedge of cheese, but oh well.

You could resub this by removing the references. If I hadn't read the comments, I'd never have guessed it was inspired by Rodent's Revenge, and that was a game I used to play a lot back in the day! (Along with Chip's Challenge).

Oh man, Chip's Challenge and SkiFree were my childhood!

Why is it that Ramyb designs always end up with people complaining in the thread? If you don't like the designs, don't vote for them. If you think he's doing something nefarious, alert the Woothorities. Being a snarky jerk in the threads doesn't accomplish anything, IMHO.

WRONGLY REJECTED..... I would buy this!

If he created the level map on his own why not let it be? Game similarities are normally accepted?!?!
