Good job stealing the Star Defense icon and modifying it only a little bit.

good job trolling around for no reason - there are millions of apps out there. try designing an icon for yourself and i'll bet you one can find another app that has a icon that looks somewhat similar ...

Only to a certain extent. It's pretty obvious you flipped it and played around with it to avoid the quick copy claim. From the color scheme, to the eagle face, to the two lines coming off the eagle body and a wing broken into 3 exact sections, there's too many "coincidences" for this to be an accident.

That was my first reaction as well. But upon closer examination, it appears that the icon is a recreation of the eagle rather than a direct copy. Still not good enough to prevent action from NGMoco should they make an issue of it, but not outright theft either.

Here they are side-by-side:



Given that this is a free game, I think it's the type of thing that will end up sliding.

well ... I see your point guys, they do look close. Guess we'll have to change that with the first update.

Anyways, any thoughts on the actual game? Any feedback is welcome.
