Is this legal? If so...I'm really surprised...

I think Web Staff is probably already on it.  If not, I can contact both.  Not a problem for me.

If we can prove that they traced the images (which seems like it) they're also under art theft.

In the off chance that Konami actually did publish that thing, Degica should settle with getting tons of money from them, then put it up for the new engine ;x

One thing no one has mentioned. It only costs US$25 to publish as many apps on Google Play as you want. There are a lot of people out there who pay it, make as much money as they can until the get caught, then just pay it again with a different name.

And you just have to change 1 line of code per class and you can publish it under the new name.

EDIT and if it wasn't $1.99 I'd buy it, open it up and see what they did.

Did you look at the link? It was published from Konami's account on Google Play. They actually did publish it.

I dunno....

But yeah, seriously, I don't think proving that would be all that difficult considering it's no small amount of art they used as a base.

If Deciga sued Konami, they could probably afford to create a whole bunch of fancy stuff for us folk. Like new RTP sprites and a ten-layer tile function. Yay!

The thing is we don't know if it's the real Konami who made the account, I think I've seen in some posts ago that the account seems to be a fake...

This is pretty ridiculous. I mean, I've already seen plenty of little online games that rip the RTP, but at least they're non-profit. This is just... horrifying. And it's actually published by Konami? You'd have thought they'd make the creators do more than simply trace the RTP or something before OK'ing this.

Yeah, I agree.  Also, it's already been reported (I got confirmation of this via Skype), so hopefully this will be taken care of swiftly.  Thanks to everyone for their input.  I think this can be closed now. :)
