Flappy Bee– or “Satisfied Game” as its title screen states– is a Flappy Bird clone that changed its name to swipe downloads from people browsing the App Store for the now-removed iOS top-rated game. Flappy is rubbish, which suffices of a reason to despise it, but it additionally takes place to have actually swiped its mascot straight from the game Bee Leader.

Greg Harding, the supervisor of Leader developer Flightless, submitted a complaint with Apple greater than 3 days back, but the offending app remains on the marketplace. Exactly what’s even worse, Flappy has been in the top 5 most prominent free ready greater than 2 Days, and is generating the cash while making use of swiped possessions.

I understand there’s a process for this type of thing, and the system that is in location alreadies existing to ensure that deceptive dispute cases cannot be made against genuine developers, however provide me a break. It shouldn’t take this lengthy for an App Store rip-off artist to be eliminated, and I could only hope Flappy is axed before much longer.

Incidentally, Leader is a wonderful game that also happens to be free. I would certainly not had the possibility to attempt it out prior to locating its duplicate, however the initial game is fairly superb. I suppose I could thank Flappy for that, but Bee Leader should really be the one at the leading of the popularity checklist as opposed to its badly coded doppelgänger, so I’ll make it easy for you; click anywhere on this paragraph to provide Leader a shot.
