As we noted in passing last week, French iPhone publisher Mobigame obtained the trademark in May to the term 'Edge' after a long-running dispute with notorious IP troll Tim Langdell.
Most industry observers sided with Mobigame in their copyright infringement battle with Langdell's company Edge Games, who for more than a decade seemed content to protect their right to the phrase 'Edge' rather than develop fresh titles of their own.
Well, now Langdell & Co. no longer have a trademark to aggressively defend in and out of court, they've decided to bite the bullet and produce a new game.
Oh, the shame and the horror.
The isometric puzzler EDGEBobby2, therefore, marks Edge Games's first foray into the iOS market, despite its being a sequel to the studio's 1986 Sinclair Spectrum / Commodore 64 arcade adventure Bobby Bearing.
Has this 99c title been worth the 25-year wait, loyal AppSpy readers?? In fact, is anything worth waiting 25 years for??
The answers are a resounding 'probably not' and 'yes'. But only if that patience is rewarded with a seminal album by a certain Brian Wilson...
