It’s one thing to build a game inspired by a popular game, and another to have a complete in-your-face rip-off of a game. I’m a big Clash Royale fan and was shocked when I found out about Tribal Mania, which is basically the same game except they hired a graphic designer to design different characters, to not, you know, have it as copy-paste and risk being taken off the Google Play Store.
Just last month I wrote about how Saudi Arabia was lucky to get in the list of accepting money from apps on Google Play. Google has now announced that Kuwait and UAE can now release paid apps. I know many developers that have been waiting for this. I might release a paid app for the fun of it, get 1 download (myself).
I know for a fact there’s a huge Android fan base in Saudi so with this recent announcement from Google it got even better. Now developers in Saudi Arabia can publish paid apps (or in-app purchase) and start accepting money. Kuwait and UAE still don’t have that unfortunately but hopefully soon.
