Another studio accuses Zynga of cloning their work

Social Gaming giant Zynga’s once again come under the spotlight for allegedly cloning other studios’ work.

After last week’s fiasco where Nimblebit accused the social giant of copying the popular Tiny Tower with Dream Heights, this time it’s Buffalo Studios which echoes the same sentiments.

The studio has accused Zynga of being too heavily inspired from their title Bingo Blitz while making their own game called Zynga Bingo.

The developer sent an infographic to VentureBeat which showcases the apparent similarities between the two games – Bingo Blitz and Zynga Bingo.

“Hello Zynga, we are moved that your new game was so inspired by our innovative product, Bingo Blitz,” the developer writes.

“You’ve obviously played our game, a lot, along with over a million other daily active users. Please tell your thousands of employees and shareholders that we hope they enjoy playing the game we’re cooking up next.”

Bingo Blitz, which launched nearly a year ago, is the most popular bingo game on Facebook right now, with millions of users playing it.
