Deliberate Rip Offs At The App Store – iFlighter Control and Ice Cream Party


I’m all one for starting new trends in the App Store. We’ve all seen how Flight Control took off (literally), which brought on an onslaught of similar games following the same line-drawing concept. While these games, such as Harbor Master, were unique and addictive in their own right, they still weren’t deliberate rip offs. Seeing as how Flight Control led to such success, many developers with half a mind and lack of creativity decided they would throw in their towel and call it a day.

DS Effects releases 51-in-1 App!


Just last month, we saw 5 quality devs team up to bring us 5 Games in 1, where well received games like Up There and Sneezies were bundled up for a fantastic price. Well not to be outdone, DS Effects has released their own bundle, in the form of ‘All 51 Games‘ (how creative!).


Incredible collection of 51 games!!!
1 download, 1 icon…51 games!

For those not familiar, DS Effects has quickly become the Uew Boll of iPhone gaming. A quick browse at the App Store and you’ll find that the majority of their games have garnered an average of 1-2 stars in customer ratings. Granted, reviews at the App Store should be taken with a grain of salt…still, you really have to wonder with all that negative feedback.

So if you have a extra buck to spare, 51 games does sound like a pretty good deal, especially if you value quantity over quality. To think of it, even if only 10 of these games are somewhat enjoyable, a measley dollar won’t burn a hole in your wallet. [All 51 Games, $0.99]
