by iPhone game developer Nimblebit that social games giant Zynga has ripped off its popular mobile title Tiny Tower
, another developer has now also accused Zynga of game cloning.
Buffalo Studios is the developer behind popular Facebook title Bingo Blitz
, which sees over 1 million daily active users on the social networking website.
The company has put together a side-by-side comparison
of its game against Zynga's recently announced Bingo game, claiming that Zynga has "obviously played" Buffalo's game.
This is the second time in the space of a week that Zynga has been called out for cloning, as Nimblebit has previously said that Zynga's game Dream Heights
is a clone of Nimblebit's own Tiny Tower
. As part of Buffalo's comparison, the company explained that it was inspired by Nimblebit's recent calling out.
"Hello Zynga. We are moved that your new game was so inspired by our innovative product, Bingo Blitz
," reads the statement from Buffalo.
"You've obviously played our game Bingo Blitz
a lot," it continues. "Please tell your thousands of employees and shareholders that we hope they enjoy playing the games we're cooking up next!"
This is just the latest in a string of "cloning" incidents that have come to light recently. Triple Town
developer Spry Fox revealed at the weekend
that it has filed a copyright infringement suit against casual game studio 6Waves Lolapps over its latest release Yeti Town
, which Spry Fox claims is a "blatant copy of Triple Town
