Edge Games Decide If You Can't Sue 'Em, Beat 'Em
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...
