    Hi, Due to legal issues I have been asked to remove Rockfall from the AppStore.
    You can read a full post about it on my blog at www.pyrofersprojects.com

    If you want to get it, Rockfall should be available for the next week, after that it will be disapearing.

    Im very sorry its come to this, I thought free markets and such were about fair competition but it seems some people dont agree.

    I have posted the final update introducing 2 new control methods, you can now play with tap/swipe OR tilt control. Three ways to control the game so that should keep everybody happy.

    Anyway, Its sad news for me but I promise im working on new games and will probably be releasing at the 59p or £1.19 price point.

    I had a read of your blog, and I agree completely with the Boulder Dash clones part. I've seen (and played) a few, and it's sad that they have decided to go after you rather than them.

    Best of luck with your future projects!

    "It's a clone of Bonder Dash :> Bonder Dash is a classic like Tetris"

    Being a classic doesnt mean its actualy illegal to do a similar style!
    Because "Pole Position" is a classic, or GranTurismo does that mean every other racing game is illegal?

    I used nothing of their code, graphics or sound. The gameplay is difference and the levels are unique from me. What exactly have I dont wrong?

    Because ID made doom, are all FPS games breaking their copyright?

    According to First Star Software's website, they plan on an iPhone release of Boulder Dash Rocks. Probably why they're being aggressive about this.

    I have been informed that releasing it in ANY way, free or otherwise is not allowed. Should I release it on Cydia I would be in trouble again, as I am sure First Star would not approve.

    Im sorry to say, it has to go, free, paid, in all forms.
    All I can say it, if you want it, grab it before I take it down.
