Cloning continues: Zynga accused of copying another game photo



Last week the internet gave Zynga sh*t for biting a bit too much off Tiny Towers for their new game Dream Heights. As you'd imagine, NimbleBit, a three-person company, was not pleased to see that the social gaming monster had stolen from them. Keep in mind that Zynga had previously tried to buy up NimbleBit. Shameless!

Now the fun continues with a new accusation from Buffalo Studios. They feel that Zynga Bingo looks a lot like their Bingo Blitz. A graphic shows a side-by-side view of the two games, and in it Buffalo shows just how similar the two games are. 

"Please tell your thousands of employees and shareholders that we hope they enjoy playing the games we're cooking up next," zings Buffalo in the graphic. 

Did Zynga not consider that Bingo Blitz has 1 million daily players, and that someone might notice? I guess they are at the point that they can clone whatever they would like to.

Natsume's E3 2014 lineup sure is a lineup

Natsume has announced its complete E3 roster for next week, and while it's got a few high points, it's not impressing me too much. It's a strange mishmash of handheld games and iOS releases with a stray PSP game and Wii U pro...more
