Well clearly the authors are a big fans of Keen. Furthermore, "Duke has the ability to hang onto the edge of platforms". I wonder from where did they get this idea? Oh I know! Keen! So the similarities doesn't stop here. There might be more. Further research is needed here!

Now you now got my attention towards that developer, who seems to be named Torus Games. After some research (i.e. googling), it seems they are well known for their mega ultra hits Barbie: Dreamhouse Party and award winning and all-time famous Hello Kitty's Cube Frenzy, but are also responsible for some not so famous and less known titles/franchises for GBA/GBC such as Doom II and Star Wars. I think we should make a deeper research through their titles to find out more keen references.

Man, now I gotta go to the stupid references are stupid thread because Prince of Persia is a Keen reference, and list every other game where characters can hang off of ledges.

Also, don't forget it's depth perspective, which is CLEARLY a Keen Galaxy reference, so don't forget to find all games that copied Keen in that matter.
