Quoting Wikipedia,

Ridiculous Fishing was released in 2013 and received “near-universal perfect scores” at launch. It won an Apple’s 2013 Design Award and was their iPhone game of the year.

This is a fantastic game which was copied even before its release. At first, the game was published as a flash game and its developers hold the rights to develop a mobile version later. One year after that, the game was released in IOS, by a different company, as Ninja Fishing. They changed the graphics and kept all the rest.  Ridiculous Fishing’s team worked on other games and spoke publicly about the situation to a standing ovation at the 2012 Game Developers Conference before resolving to scrap the majority of their work and finish the game.
