Sad.  Sure its a fun game but also its a valuable technology demo for JPCT.

What a litigious society  :'(

I've removed it to avoid unnecessary problems concerning the legal issues that there are. We'll see what will come out of all this...

It makes me sad! The Greedy Lawyers strike again.  :'(
*thinks* Oh no! I wonder if they'll get me for the 'Hunchy' game on my site?

What a pathetic thing for them to do.

It is not like anyone would pay money to play a store bought version of the original,
when it is probably almost as old as pac man :o

It is a great game you made there, but I think we can all agree, it isn't going to cause them loss of earnings.
I hate it when they do this.

You released it freely. That means a few people have the source already.
They cannot stop the OS movement :D

Hold on, did you use any artwork from their game? Because judges on both the UK and the US have ruled that only the artwork and the source code are copyrightable. The games' ideas are not.

It used some tiny parts of the art work, some digitized sounds from the original and the level maps...as well as the name. If you change all that, it might be fine. But it wasn't fun to me any longer to deal with all this...i just wanted to make a fun game, not a legal mine field. So i decided to withdraw it.
