Clash of Clans is one of the most successful video games of all time. So, as you can probably guess, it has clones. Lots of clones.

Reddit user sonuvagun06 took some grabs of various App Store games. You’ll notice first that Clash of Clans’ success has generated… competition. And not only is Clash of Clans getting ripped off, but there are “tributes” to Borderlands, Portal and Team Fortress as well.

Suggestion, lazy devs: stop ripping off Clash of Clans and start ripping off Civilization instead. The lack of a proper Civ game on the App Store is killing me.
