I was unable to find a way to edit the original post name.

Did you license the image from Aleste Game, or you just outright stole it ?

Well:
  1. ** I'm a HUGE fan of all Aleste games from, now defunct, Compile. Since early MSX games (my first computer)
  2. ** The images are used only at the help page. More like a tribute to Compile than something to tweak customers into thinking it's another type of game
  3. ** I consider it as a fair use/fair dealing under general copyright law. You have the right to disagree

But, I must tell you something about the word "stole" that you used above.

Remember that, if you damage someone's reputation by trying to embarrass them in a public forum, you could be sued for libel or defamation. After all,
there's no reason to assume that the messages you send through cyberspace are immune from lawsuits.

I'm willing to take the risk about Compile. How about you?

Because you're threatening me I look at your past game/apps,
and true enough you never use any original art anyway (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle, Hello Kitty, Kirby).

And also, are you the same user as ombaudsman ? who is banned from toucharcade.

What about the wing commander image ?

You do have a history of using images from other games. IF you somehow took someone to court you would lose in seconds due to use of unlicensed images. Easy case

Ill not renew my Apple membership which will expire in just a couple of days. Last chance to get the apps. Most of them are free.

Dont have time to reduce the price on the other ones...

Bye! It was really fun coding the games!

...last minutes...

time will make justice to those marvelous games!

The only reason why theyre not more popular than Pokemon Go is : marketing budget!!!!! not!
