Tiny Tower is one of the cutest and most successful iPhone games around. So, naturally, someone is shamelessly ripping it off. Only, the company doing the ripping off isn’t some shady Chinese or Russian company. It’s social gaming powerhouse Zynga.
Zynga’s new game Dream Heights isn’t a homage to NimbleBit’s game. It’s almost a clone, lifting not just the overall premise but much of Tiny Tower’s core mechanics as well.
It’s so close, in fact, that NimbleBit’s Ian Marsh put together the image below and posted it to Twitter. Presumably with white knuckles.
