The Blocks Cometh Copycat Removed from App Store


It took about a week, but Apple finally removed The Blocks Cometh from the App Store. The Blocks Cometh was originally conceived by indie developer Halfbot, and a Flash version of the game was playable for free online. Things went awry when another developer made the exact same game (title, art style, and gameplay), and began distributing it on the App Store.

The game was finally pulled and distribution ceased. This is great news for the Halfbot team, and hopefully the publicity will get the developer some recognition, notoriety, and praise. The folks at Halfbot stuck to their guns and didn't let the copycat steal their IP without a fight. Congrats to Halfbot! We'll be waiting for the real version of The Blocks Cometh to hit the iPhone somewhere down the line.
