Fishy business: The real story of an App Store clone war

What happens to iPhone developers when their games are copied? And what's behind the rise of "clones" in the App Store and elsewhere? This is the definitive story of indie developer Vlambeer, Gamenauts, and the controversy surrounding Ninja Fishing.

The story is too old to be commented.

I'm torn between my love of ninjas and my hatred of ripoffs.

I'm not! Love ninjas, but the rip-offs piss me off... But hey, only one thing to do from the consumer side...don't buy the damn rip-off.

So sad to see a dev spend so much time creating something fresh and interesting to just get it ripped by someone else for another platform.

But I'll be getting Rediculous Fishing once it hits to show some support!

Weren't there two very similar games about anthropomorphic rabbits on the iPhone?

Very good read.

These clones in the iOS App Store bug the crap outta me...Not just because of the hack devs ripping other people off, but because I *know* there are plenty of stupid people out there that won't realize the difference.

Crazy story. I wish Apple would do something about this.

Great article. I'd be upset if I was a Ridiculous Fishing developer too.
