Copyright Infringment

Hello,

I’m Pablo Realini from IronHide Game Studio (www.ironhidegames.com), and This game is in fact a rip-off of a game we developed a year ago called Clash of the Olympians. The PTT version has copied all of the original game assets as well as gameplay mechanics, they only changed the name and cutted some parts off. The original game features 3 heroes with 2 special powers each , the PTT version only features 1 hero with 1 special power.

What PTT-Solutions did is a terrible thing to do as a game developer. Stealing someone elses work and claiming it as their own. It really hurts the industry and the small indie developers.

You can check the original game version at : http://ironhidegames.com/clash_of_the_olympians.php or just type “Clash of the Olympians” on google, and you will see our game on many many sites.

You can check the PTT-Solutions version here : http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/achilles-defense/id413815815?mt=8#

Also I have included an image comparing both games.

I hope you agree that what PTT Solutions did is a terrible thing and that you will support the original creators of the game.

Kind regards,
Pablo

No wonder its free. Thanks Pablo for pointing out this. Other games might resemble others in ways but this is a total ripoff as the screen shots prove. No download from me.

Yeah this sucks....this kind of stuff is killing indie game developers like us

We are just 3 guys trying to make great games and its terrible people steal and make money doing this shit.

The free flahs version features 3 heroes with two special powers each, the Ptt copycat version has only one hero with one power.

We will release the original legit version of clash for iphone very soon with all the content from the flash version and more.

Please dont support these people and if you want to help us, expose them at every turn.
