Zynga Shamelessly Rips Off Indie Game

Eli Hodapp, writing for TouchArcade:

It doesn’t take more than a few quick glances at the screenshots and iTunes text to realize that Zynga has firmly focused their copy machines on NimbleBit’s Tiny Tower. It’s really incredibly just how blatant of a clone this is, as Zynga has gone far beyond just copying the premise of the game — they even directly lifted the restocking mechanics, elevator upgrades, UI elements, and more.

Looks like someone’s angling for an acquisition by Samsung.
