Super Puzzle Fighter 2 Turbo clone appears on App Store

A clone of Capcom's tile-matching puzzle video game, Super Puzzle Fighter 2 Turbo, from CatCap hit the iTunes App Store today.

Gem Fighter features the user interface, aesthetic and gameplay of Super Puzzle Fighter 2 Turbo. As with the original game, the $1.99 clone includes characters identical to those in Capcom's Street Fighter series, including Ken, Ryu and Chun-Li.

Super Puzzle Fighter 2 Turbo was first released in arcades in 1996 and features characters from the Darkstalkers and Street Fighter series'. Its remake, Super Puzzle Fighter 2 Turbo HD Remix, released on Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network in 2007.

Another Capcom clone appeared on the iTunes store last week. Titled Sango Fight, the $0.99 side-scrolling beat-'em-up resembles 1992 arcade game, Warriors of Fate. A Super Mario Bros. clone featuring Pokémon characters was also discovered on the store last week.

We've contacted both CatCap and Capcom for comment, and will update this story with any new information we receive.
