Stoneloops of Jurassica hit the App Store in mid-May. Despite getting positive reviews from the gaming press, and doing well in both popularity and sales, it was put in a difficult position when competitor MumboJumbo sent a note to to Apple saying that Stoneloops infringed on the intellectual property rights of its Luxor franchise as well as copying some of Luxor's visual style. According to Stoneloops developer Maciej Biedrzycki, Apple put the burden of proof on it instead of MumboJumbo. And despite Biedrzycki and company refuting the claims, the app was taken down just two weeks later.
Stoneloops has now been off the App Store for more than a month. Users can still pick up the game for Mac and PC, but the only way to get it on an iPhone is if you had previously purchased the title while it was available. In the meantime Biedrzycki tells us he's hired outside legal help to get the app back on the store.
