So is it a rip off clone or just an inspired clone of the original? I need to know, should I oil my pitchfork or start giving out hearty backslaps?

Games that will never leave my iPad : Great Big Wargame, Battle Academy, Battle of the Bulge, Ravenmark and Hunters 2.

Waaah, the original game was one of my favorite Amiga games. Which version is better?

What's the difference between this and "the bluecoats"? One dev ain't gonna be impressed. And I don't know which. I guess the bluecoats is "more originally since its at least a year old or so. Practically the same art. Strange.

Bluecoats is pretty much the official remake for iOS from Microids; the iPad-only version of this game actually came out last year, pretty much right after Microids released their own.

Even without delving into the legitimacy of this particular app (produced by a developer who has apparently never released any other games), just judging by the artwork and general presentation this "clone" comes across as a cheap Flash knockoff.
