Gameloft: The Asylum of Games

If you haven't seen the list on Wikipedia of the 'mockbusters' that are cranked out by the movie studio The Asylum to coincide with the release of a big movie, presumably to trick people into watching the wrong movie. If you haven't, read it here first, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Asylum and then finish reading this post. Much like the 'mockbusters' of The Asylum, Gameloft's entire business model is based around capitalsing on that success, so for your amusement and to show that Gameloft are basically IP crooks, here is a list of the iOS games released by Gameloft and their AAA counterparts.
(I am aware that these games were made specifically made for iOS so that they would not steal market share from the publishers of the original property but it is still, in my opinion, theft of intellectual property and above all, just laziness)


God of War- Hero of Sparta, Hero of Sparta 2
Grand Theft Auto 4- Gangster: West Coast Hustle
Dungeon Siege- Dungeon Hunter, Dungeon Hunter 2
Civilization- The Settlers
HALO- NOVA, NOVA 2
Uncharted- Shadow Guardian (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=50pNU2EFN_o)
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare- Modern Combat
Call of Duty: Black Ops- Modern Combat: Black Pegasus
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3- Modern Combat 3: Fallen Nation
Starcraft 2- Starfront: Collision
World of Warcraft- Order and Chaos Online
Assassins Creed 2- Backstab
Hitman: Absolution- Silent Ops.
