Zynga Accused of Copying by Bingo Blitz Dev

Zynga Accused of Copying by Bingo Blitz Dev

Recently, Tiny Tower developer NimbleBit released a note accusing Zynga of copying their popular iOS title. It appears that Zynga hasn’t only copied gaming ideas from NimbleBit. Buffalo Studios, the developer behind Facebook game Bingo Blitz, also issued a letter to Zynga in the same fashion as NimbleBit.

Comparing both games’ screenshots in the letter, it is easy to see the similarities between the popular facebook game and Zynga’s upcoming title. I have played Buffalo’s Bingo Blitz and really enjoyed it. Not I can’t say that if I was to play Zynga’s title, that I would not enjoy it as well. However, I don’t approve of blatantly copying the gaming ideas of another company. Especially if it is one of the indie developers who are trying to make their place in the industry.
