    I see that they own the arcade genre in both Google and ios app stores, the thing that bothers me is that in the past we have seen articles about how they have copied indie games immediately once they see any success from their competitors. So does this matter to you? do you like their games?

    That is unfortunate that some game companies copy successful indie games which owner may not have the money and time to take them to court, and ask them to stop copying their games.

    I never heard of these companies, but maybe that's because I don't play smartphone games that much?
    But as a former independent game developer, I think creating a dominance from cloning successful games is outright outrageous.
    It's like pointing a middle finger to the original stuff, it's especially possible since independent game developers are unable to sue massive companies like these, meaning these 2 companies are taking advantage of the laws too.
