And since it's now being advertised in here, all the people that were crying because of the "high" (I laugh) price of Canabalt will get it immediately as they see this.

The dev needs to be reported.

I'm actually surprised this didn't occur earlier, since the devs of Canabalt released the source code. Don't get me wrong. I don't agree with this BS in the least bit, but given how much junk is on the App Store using stolen assets, etc, you'd think someone would have tried to pass off Canabalt's source code as their own for profit.

More proof that Apple's review staff live under a rock.
Oh, and it has 53 5-star ratings already.

As far as i know, SemiSecret Software shared their source code, but sending it to Apple and posting it like your own game is a shame I'm so sad that world has such people like that.
