They can't have as you can still grab it from Apple marketplace for 99cents, as another one slips thru

Apple must be getting over-worked, as more little apps are slipping thru their tight-ass approval process, this one borrowing characters from the Nintendo Zelda series, and even called iZelda

Another one has slipped thru the cracks in Apple's normally very tightly controlled pre-screening approval process, I wonder if they need more employees looking at all the new apps, or they just plain given up because of the mind-blogging amount of apps being submitted each day to the marketplace, compare to previous app store years!



One cheeky developer, known as both Audio Attack and Attack Touch, has seen fit to "borrow" Nintendo's characters from Zelda and insert them into a 99cents Doodle Jump-esque game called Ultimate iZelda Climb.

This isn't the first time this developer has "borrowed" another game's assets to make a Doodle Jump game -- a cursory examination of the App Store reveals the exact same game with Hello Kitty, James Bond, Modern Warfare 3, World of Warcraft, Bratz and Barney skins, along with a "Fast vs Furious" game that uses the same icon from Need for Speed: Most Wanted without the text. Their website also offers a selection of soundboard apps featuring quotes from Modern Warfare 2 and the Halo series.


Wrong time to be 'borrowing' characters from Nintendo on the heels of their big 25th year anniversary launch for Zelda!

Good luck with your 99cents sales on the app store, I hope you saving it all, as lawyers will be knocking on your door soon! :)

Lol, the subtitle on the page says $99 instead of 99 cents.

Also, to that one idiot who reviewed it and gave it a 1-rating on the app store - WHY THE F**K would you buy it??

"They must haven't" - great bit of writing there - what does that even mean? Great to see Maxconsole still upholding the high standards after the reboot that we have come to know it for...

If you unabbreviate the word 'haven't' it does actually make perfect sense. "They must have not". Don't know whether its proper English to use the abbreviation though, just doesn't quite sound right

No,,should read "they mustn't have, or can't have"

I only aim to please! (hehe)

I was just copying the 'source link' headline:

http://www.gamepro.com/article/news/223893/nintendos-lawyers-havent-noticed-this-zelda-themed-ios-game-yet/

it uses the same word, but you right could have been re-word better.
