Apple Pulls Game For Being Too Tetris-ey

Apple has pulled yet another game from the App Store at the request of the Tetris company. Phunkware was informed that their game Shaker was to be removed following complaints from the Tetris Company and Tetris Holdings LLC that the game too closely resembled their namesake game.

It does seem a little unusual that Tetris would wait until the game had been on the store for a month before asking to have it taken down, but Apple’s word is law in the App Store and away it went.

This isn’t the first time Tetris has asked that a game be removed. It happened once before with the game Tris.
