I have a game called 'Shapes Dodge' which is still in development. I figured out the name back in February when I began developing it. Since then I've been checking monthly the Google Play Store for games with similar titles and today I saw my worst nightmare coming true - there are a few games with a similar name: https://play.google.com/store/search?q=shapes%20dodge&c=apps
I am worried about the first two games which both have the name 'Shape Dodge'. So will I get sued if I publish my game with the name 'Shapes Dodge' ('shapes' with 'S' at its end) on the Google Play Store?
I want to emphasize that the content of my game is very different from these games' (different controlls, gameplay, graphics, music, etc), only the title is similar.
Please answer me as simple as possible because I am not very familiar with legislation, laws, copyright, trademark and so on. Thank you! :)
So after serios consideration and brainstorming I figured out a new name for my app: 'Dodgy Shapes'. Obvously the amount of similarity with the other apps which contain these keywords (https://play.google.com/store/searchq=shapes%20dodge&c=apps) is much less. But do you think it is enough difference so that I won't have any problems in the future?
Again, thanks to all who responded. :)
