It has come to my attention that some developers have stolen data from an already-successful game and re-skinned it with a new look. This phenomenon is not new in gaming world and culminates in extremely burgeoning mobile industry, followed by a handful of popular titles like Clash of Clans, Candy Crush Saga, Kingdoms of Camelot, Puzzle and Dragons, Temple Run, etc.. Such phenomenon prevails these day mostly because mobile games seem to have less investment than traditional PC or console games.
Clash of Clans is one of the most successful iOS games and has the largest base of imitators. Of all Clash of Clans copies, some added some twists with a completely new theme and presentation; some slightly changed the interface layout and basic artworks and some are designed for other platforms like Facebook, and Android. However, a small portion of developers are cheating on the original by hacking the server and stealing the source code to relaunch the game in the black market.
A game called Amazing Clan War is just a game that has stolen all data from Clash of Clans and slightly changed itself. Surprisingly, it has passed the approval of the Apple Team and appeared in the worldwide app store.
I have played Amazing Clan War for a few hours and found that it is nothing but a blatant ripoff of Clash of Clan from interface, color scheme, gaming mathematics, sound, music, presentation and everything.
Honestly, I can accept a copycat with some fundamental changes. For example, Castle Clash, on the surface, is a copycat of Clash of Clans, but it has added a lot of new elements like hero concept, engaging troop survival, dungeon exploration, etc.. But if a game that completely copied the original and has been officially approved by the Apple Team, that is a shame!
