Another developer accuses Zynga of game cloning

Zynga Bingo looks rather familiar.

For the second time this month, social gaming giant Zynga has been accused of cloning another developer's game.

Following Tiny Tower developer Nimblebit's assertion last week that Zynga had lifted the game's core concept for its own Dream Heights title, Buffalo Studios today pointed out certain similarities between its Facebook effort Bingo Blitz and Zynga Bingo, which recently entered closed beta.

An infographic published online by the developer puts the two games side by side. Take a look below and see if you can tell the difference.

"We are moved that your new game was so inspired by our innovative product Bingo Blitz," it read.

"Please tell your thousands of employees and shareholders that we hope they enjoy playing the games we're cooking up next!"

Buffalo's game launched a year ago and boasts over a million daily users.
