Sure I think Veggie Samuri is a clone, but the only the only reason I called it a "clone" was because of the gameplay. In this case being a clone is kind of a good thing. Fruit Ninja is a great app, but Paper Ninja has tons of potential and thats what the devs need to bring out. My definition of clone is a bit different from yours. Veggie Samuri was pretty much a rip-off, but paper Ninja isn't. It is a very entertaing game. Although the name sounds pretty similar.
