Check out this screenshot:

Looks a lot like danlab-style graphics and camera angles... any chance it is?
It's called Beach Buggy Blitz, and it's made by a company called Vector Unit... and has fantastic reviews on the Android App Store.

I also notice the buggy game is no longer available for Mac...

All too often, art is simply the loss of practicality.

There was a clone of our ToySight skydiving game too. Pretty typical that Google's claiming it's innovative with a copy of a game we won an Apple Design Award for in 2004 Smile

Hehe. Maybe you should have. Wink

I do think people go a little to far in claiming that people copied somebody else's art style for games. (Cubes and low res textures! Rah!) I suppose it's probably a good problem to have that your art is recognizable enough that people can compare it to other things. Smile
