Sword and poker ripoff?

Hey has anyone else seen the game a king of poker? It is a new app and I noticed the pictures and description where very familiar, so I looked up sword and poker and the pictures are the same and the description is very similar. I am assuming it is someone stealing another developers game, I hate this sort of thing. I emailed the developers of sword and poker so they can be aware of it.

Is there a stealing of a game and passing it off as your own forum? It is about a game for the iphone/ipod touch that is available in the app store and I wanted to start a discussion about it, what other forum should I use?

Holy shit, this isn't just a clone, they actually stole the whole game! Don't expect to see this on the App Store for long. What idiots, I absolutely cannot stand this type of thing.

Wow you're right. They even went as far as to just rip 2 of the sword & poker screenshots into their own game. AND sell this complete copy of the game for $6.99!!!

Apple pulled the app (Ace Poker Hero) but approved a new one with different name, same ripoff, same developer. Worse, it's $20.99 now!!!

Do not buy

Does anyone know why Apple pulled the original app(s). I have been trying to find it.

They disappeared randomly and then reappeared once before, about a year ago. Then they disappeared again a couple months ago. Maybe they'll be back again, but who knows? Maybe the devs sold the rights to some shady company that's selling it for 20 bucks now
