Clones

I have a feeling some might enjoy this topic.
Non-so-subtle clones on the app store.
(There's the obvious ones Mario/Sonic, anyones similar to something like Contra also?)

Here we go:

Polyroll -> Sonic
Order & Chaos -> WoW

Super Crate Box has a lot of clones too. Ridiculous Fishing got a clone too (a polemic one).

The latest I can remember is the Super Hexagon clone (got a refund), released not so long ago.

For some shameful "true" clones, check out the games by varaprasadu potugunta. I have no idea how they have stayed up so long. It appears his Merchant to the Stars clone has been removed at least, but I know the Super Lemonade Factory dev has contacted Apple about that clone and it's still there. His other apps are direct copies too.

It's too late.
