I've recently published a small (but fun ;) ) iOS game, Flipz:
I basically wrote it as a birthday gift for my father since I never know what to give him. The game principle is not completely unique but at least has some unique features not seen in any other games (at least as far as I know).
Now, for the scary part: I recently received a cease-and-desist email in broken English from the publisher of the following game:
The email basically states that I copied their game illegally, that I should remove my game immediately from the app store and pay "lawyer fees" of 500$.
What should I do now?? Granted, the games share a bit of gameplay but look nothing like each other and I do have some unique features in it. Should I remove my game and pay as requested? Should I lawyer up and refute the claim?
My game has only like 200 downloads, so I don't know how I even got a target :<
Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!
