What ever happened to...

Lights Off by Lucas Newman and Adam Betts. I know it's still available for the jailbreaking crowd, but I was just wondering why they haven't ported it using the official SDK yet?

EDIT: Wow, looks like someone ripped them off bigtime...

well, I think Lights Off based based on an older game, so I don't think other clones are necessarily rip offs of the jailbroken Lights Off

Firstly, if you could please refrain from using mystery titles like "whatever happened to..." and instead include the point of the topic in the title, I'm sure everyone here would appreciate it. Thanks.
So you would instead say "whatever happened to Lights Out?".

Secondly, as Arn already pointed out, this is an old concept that was around long before Lucas Newman cloned it.
