Here are the bad things about being a copied version
Primarily, the game has no originality. Even though it features a more advance theme compared to the original, it cannot compare to what the original is all about. It may attract players that play such games but it will not ultimately satisfy the player who seeks the original version of the game.
There are infringements to be aware of. Like plagiarism, creating a game requires that it should be an original. Unfortunately, this copy right infringement law is often by pass or overlooked because the copied game in untraceable.
Clones of the game are bad for business – the flappy bird was first of its kind to be cloned. Because of its popularity, games like flappy football were created. Although the game offers some level of fun and excitement, it is not right to play a game that is copied from another.
Certainly, there are a lot of games out there that were clones of other great games which has now become very popular compared to the original version and something has to be done with it.
