You may have noticed our google play app’s page now points to “app not found”. Yesterday google sent us a removal email explaining why. The content is as follows:
This is a notification that your app, Pets In Space Saga, with package name com.mythicreation.petsinspacesaga, has been removed from Google Play.
REASON FOR SUSPENSION: Alleged trademark infringement.
Google has been notified that aspects of your app, Pets In Space Saga, allegedly infringe upon the trademarks of others, and it has been removed from Google Play due to a violation of the Developer Program Policies.
All violations are tracked. Serious or repeated violations of any nature will result in the termination of your developer account, and investigation and possible termination of related Google accounts. If your account is terminated, payments will cease and Google may recover the proceeds of any past sales and the cost of any associated fees (such as chargebacks and payment transaction fees) from you.
You may contact King.com Limited at firstname.lastname@example.org. If King.com Limited contacts us specifically authorizing your app to be re-published, and your app does not otherwise violate the Developer Distribution Agreement and Developer Program Policies, we will reinstate the app.
Please note that we have included a text copy of the Infringement Notice we received for your reference. If you have any further concerns about this issue, please address them directly to the complainant in the Infringement Notice provided below.

King.com has claimed our app “Pets in Space Saga” infringes on their trademark “Pet Rescue Saga”.
This is not the end of our product as we plan to rebrand the app and republish it. More info regarding this will be posted soon.
