I remember seeing a video for a game that looked very similar to this on W. Eric Martin's Essen videos from 2015. It was being taught by an elderly woman who had a few other games she was demoing but I don't think it looked the same so I'm wondering if it was changed. Also, I could be completely wrong so I don't mean to throw BO games under a plagiarism bus, I just honestly have no clue if these are the same games or not.

Not sure which game you are referring to exactly. Fast Flip is a simple matching game, so there are many many similar games out there. Perhaps you're thinking of Joomba!? Or maybe you're remembering my colleague Matthieu from Blue Orange (EU) as a woman in this video?



To more directly answer your question: Fast Flip is an "original" concept, it has not been changed, and has not appeared under any other name.

Lol, definitely didn't confuse Matthieu for an elderly woman but I definitely don't remember enough of the other game I saw to make an accusation of plagiarism. I just remember thinking, "Oh wow, that game looks cool." Then seeing Fast Flip and going " Oh great, gotta pick that up!" But just confused if they were the same game. Thanks for the clarification!

Found the video! The games are definitely different but I can see how I confused them. Start at the 3 minute mark.

Regardless of that, I am still excited to play Fast Flip! It looks great!
