On his personal website (see related links section) the artist Matthew Cox claims the game was cloned by King.com as Pac-Avoid. Next to comparing all the similarities between the games, he describes how Stolen Goose was in contact with Lars J├Ârnow at King.com to license the game. The deal fell through because Stolen Goose decided to work with MaxGames.com instead and King.com released a game almost entirely identical shortly after Scamperghost's release. Cox was able to track down the clone's development team Epic Shadow Entertainment and developer Matt Porter confirmed King.com asked them to clone the game and if possible even before the original game's release. Matthew Cox however also admitted that Scamperghost was inspired directly by an earlier game called Particles by another developer.
