Kingdom Rush is the newest indie game to get "cloned" by another developer and illegally sold. The original browser tower defense game now has an unauthorized iOS port.
That's the problem with even the legitimate mobile development companies, most of their ideas are stolen. Heck, GameLoft makes their money on copying major titles (CoD, StarCraft, etc.). As hardcore gamers, we recognize these actions, but most casual gamers who buy them don't know, let alone care. Personally, I put my money where I feel it is best deserved, and that's with the originators of the concepts and not the people who make a quick buck on copying them.
