Gameloft’s slick-looking real-time strategy game Starfront: Collision sure was a hit in the iOS App Store -- the majority of user reviews are for the full five stars. But when we played the Mac App Store port, it was full of bugs and hampered by a weak AI, though the solid multiplayer mode redeems it at least a little.
Gameloft has made a lot of money for themselves by - shall we say - taking inspiration from other classic video games. For a while most iOS gamers were willing to accept this for a variety of reasons. For one, "inspiration" and even outright copying has been around since the earliest days of video gaming. Many were also just thrilled to have near-copies of their favorite games on their iProducts. Gameloft's new MMO Order and Chaos may be too much for some gamers to stomach though.
