Making An Original Game Is Hard, Yo

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.

    But Clash of Clans was just ripping off Backyard Monsters, a hyper successful Facebook Game which existed years before it did: http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_71P6Ifd3Uy4/TMHasx44VHI/AAAAAAAAAY8/xtOtxbufrE0/s1600/Backyard%2BMonsters.png

    If people start posting photos of their clash base ill post mine :)

    Luke, there is amproper Civ game on the app store, made by the actual devs. It's called "Civilisation Revolution" and it plays out like an actual Civ game. It was even out on the PS3!

      no no no, Rev doesn't count. It's too streamlined. I want the real deal!
