Here’s Picture Evidence Of How Zynga Rips Off Other Game Companies

Does Zynga outright copy other small gaming developers in order to mass produce quick cash-in titles? No matter the answer, the reality is the company has built a public image and reputation that doesn’t ignore the fact, claiming that they do core gaming concepts better and more successfully than their competitors.

But when you look at various titles side-by-side, there’s a definite argument to Zynga’s guilt.

After all, SF Weekly blew the lid off the company’s tactics in a devastatingly in-depth feature, but seeing the evidence in front of you is an entirely different matter. That’s what Forbes writer Paul Tassi notes, stacking up screenshots from several Zynga titles right next to the games they’ve allegedly copied.

Is it too much to think that’s its just similar ideas happening to look alike? Or is the sinister intent of Zynga as plain as a picture in the Forbes’ piece?
