• My Little Pony: Puzzle Party Case Settled, Game Will Be Removed

    Usually legal stuff involving gaming here on EQD is Hasbro axing a brony project. The tides have turned though, as the official Hasbro backed game "My Little Pony: Puzzle Party" will be removed from the iOS and Android stores following a settlement with Peak Games. Peak claimed that Puzzle Party was a direct ripoff of their game "Toy Blast". You can see the comparison over here. I don't think there was a whole lot to defend on this one.

    The exact press release can be found below the break.
