Believe it or not, it's not a bug.... but it *is* a mistake in my opinion. Here's a running discussion of it in the game page:

Hare and Tortoise renamed to Around the World in 80 Days?

Hi, Bob. I can't figure out from the FAQs whether new themes make new entries anymore or not. (I've been somewhat nomadic for a year, so I haven't kept up.)

EWM split the entries minutes ago, so I think that answers my question.

Edit: fixed link

It's fixed now! A command decision was made and Around the World in 80 Days now has a separate page from Hare & Tortoise, noting that the new game is a reimplementation of the previous game.

I think this is quite reasonable, as I read and understand the several differences between the games. In fact, as I am a longtime fan of Hare & Tortoise, there's a very good chance that I will acquire the new one someday as well, since it really is a bit different.
