Apple pulls Shaker from App Store

Apple late last night pulled Shaker (iTunes link, now throws an error) from the App Store. The game, a free Tetris clone with a twist, was released by Phunkware on 9 September 2008. Tetris LLC contacted Apple claiming the game was too close to Tetris for comfort. Having played it, I agree with the LLC in this case.

    How about an alternative Tetris or Welltris (3D Tetris) game website? Tetris addicts need their fix!
