I'm sure DS won't disappoint us, as usual.
Let's buy.

Law issues? What you mean?

Lol, the description in the app store says ' The balloon want only go up '

That's DS Effects for you.

Imho this is a blatant copy of Up There from Veiled Games!

If they wanted to use similar mechanics for game play that should have been fine. But using almost identical graphics this is pretty bad/low.

But it wont be the first time I saw something similar while browsing the AppStore (for example I saw several games that have the same triangle + colors of Trism).

I am sure Veiled Games wont be happy about it and if I were them ill change the games so it doesn't look like a rip off of Up There.

Up There vs. Balloon

They look so similar, it's not even funny. Another App Store hiccup, atleast it isn't something like that Baby Shaker thing...
