Yes, Walkabout also uses these graphics but they are actually from a person called Daniel Cook (www.lostgarden.com).

He provides a lot of different graphics for people to use in commercial or non-commercial projects as long as they give attribution (credit).

The game was only released around 10 hours ago so the Apple App Store may still performing some magic processing

Next time get your facts straight before making accusations.
You really wouldn't expect me to know that, would you? Either way, I'll delete my posts.
