Meet Candy Pop Saga, A Ripoff Game That Hopes To Crush The Competition
What iOS game includes cute and colorful candy graphics, and multiple levels of play? If you said Candy Crush Saga, you’d be wrong. The words above are how Rival Edge describes its newest game, Candy Pop Saga. Yes, we’ve stumbled upon yet another ripoff game. In one corner is Candy Crush Saga, the extremely popular (and addictive) game from King. In the other is its copycat, which launched last month in the App Store. Unlike some other ripoff artists, Rival Edge at least admits that their game is similar to the one from King. The app’s iTunes page states:
More and more sweet candies are waiting for you in this addictive match 3 puzzle game. Unlike other match 3 games like Candy Crush, Bejeweled, Jewel Quest, Candy Pop Saga is a simpler game with Pop Star and Diamond Dash style game play … … If you love playing the above games such as Candy Crush Saga, Bejeweled, Jewel Quest, you'll definitely love this game as it offers a sweet and fresh taste!Take a look: While I understand that King doesn’t own a copyright on candy-shaped objects, the introduction of Candy Pop Saga just looks wrong. Not that it seems to matter. At the time of this writing, Candy Crush Saga is the second most popular free game in the App Store. Candy Pop Saga? It hasn’t even made the Top 200. Talk about crushing the competition! Candy Crush Saga is available in the App Store.
