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.

Peggle 2 ricochets onto Xbox 360 on May 7

Though early adoption of new consoles is something I tend to avoid these days, there is one game that has made me jealous of Xbox One users: Peggle 2. Soon enough, the ball-bouncing lesson in geometry and rainbows will not be...more
