Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

Did you just say: "****"?

Not about to get into debating this again, but do feel compelled to only point out: if we boycotted every big company who ever played hardball with a smaller competitor we'd hardly have any games to play at all.

So unless you plan on boycotting Nintendo, Sega, Microsoft, Capcom, EA, Activision, just to name a few, kindly stop being a hypocrite, thank you. Oh, almost forgot: Apple too. Better get rid of those iDevices before you go ahead and stick the boot in.

"stick the boot in"? Don't understand - is this kind of slang or a saying?

And do you really want me to accept people kicking around other people? Seriously? *raises eyebrow*

Basically means: attack.

Either accept it or don't. But be consistent.

Not saying it's true or isn't, but I heard a rumor that Stone Loops lifted some code from Luxor. If that were the case then I wouldn't feel bad for the Stoneloops devs at all...although again, not saying it is true or isn't. Just saying.

And, yeah, I guess this sort of stuff is about where you draw the line. Personally I would love to not be a part of anyone exploiting anyone else, but it will be a few years before I can afford my own private planet in the deep of space.

You gotta admit, stone loops was a re-skin of Luxor, regardless of whether Luxor was similar to puzzloop which was the first marble popper... Stone loops even had the same power ups as Luxor.
Notice how mumbo jumbo didnt stop apple from selling Atlantis sky patrol... That's because at least the devs of that made it slightly different in gameplay.. Whereas stoneloops was identical to Luxor....

I still have stone loops.... And by not boycotting mumbo jumbo... I know have stone loops, Luxor, luxor2 and Luxor Amun rising..... Plenty of choice
