I was just browsing around on Google play and AMAZED by how many clones in the shop.
Here's just one example:
I think to myself. Why on earth would you make a complete rip-off of something that already exists?
I can get that you have a some favorite game that inspires you, and that you have some idea to make something new and innovative based on the mechanics of a game that currently exists. Like similar, but with a twist, or something new to make it even better?
But I don't get ....
Most of them are just reskins. I can understand that people download them, because they're not educated enough to tell the original from the copy. Why are play stores even allowing this? Since most clones are even crappier and buggier than the original, It's flooding the marketplace with cheap crappy rip-offs.
Why would you even bother to create something exactly identical, but with a reskin?
You have a favorite game like "unblock" but you can't find this on another marketplace, so you want to provide this popular game to the crowd because no-one else is doing it on that platform/website/marketplace...
Just wanted to know, what's your opinions on clones?
