The Worst Video Game Ripoffs on the App Store

As IGN's mobile games editor, I have the privilege of playing dozens of addictive, innovative and just plain fun iPhone games week in and week out. But the App Store has a dark side, too. Once a week Brian Altano and I plumb the App Store's depths for the worst of the worst. Donkey Kong clones, barely playable platformers, In-App Purchase scams... nothing is off-limits. (iPad, iPhone)

Apple needs to crack down on these assholes hard. It's crazy that these apps get past the approval process. Doesn't anyone at Apple know what Mario looks like?

They don't care because they get a cut of the profit.
If nobody makes a fuss about them, the games would never be taken down, copyright infringement or not.

Apple will only care if the app competes with one of their applications, they have no regard for others IP.

Super Monster Bros by Adventure Time Pocket Free

These type of games are gonna make that mobile games bubble burst very fast. Lets not talk about Disney and Gamelofts Iron man 3 game.

Missing the MaXpolsion game which CAPCOM released, Incredibly similar in every aspect to 'Splosion man. Poor Twisted Pixel wouldn't and couldn't afford the lawsuit so they got of scott free.
