Apple’s app store has lost store guidelines to allow game emulators. The retro game emulator Delta recently rose to prominence in a short time, gaining viewers' attention and igniting the threat of legal action. Adobe has attacked Delta for sporting a logo that was copied from their logo.

Delta's game emulator was developed by Rile Testut, who started his experiment to find out the different ways to download games on graphing calculators. Even before turning to iOS, the app transformed from Testut’s previous app, GBA4iOS, which increased the chances of running emulated games on iOS without breaking out the iPhone.

Apple always hosts these apps by itself rather than competing with the other app stores, where the banned apps still entertain customers.

Testuk took it as an opportunity to introduce Delta to everyone all over the world. Fortunately, it rose to prominence in a short time and became the No. 1 app, which was downloaded by millions of people within one week of its launch. Even after one month, it still ranks as the No. 33 app across the USA App Store, which is a remarkable accomplishment. Meanwhile, PPSSPP, another game emulator, followed Delta and ranked No.5.

According to Delta, it received the first email from Adobe’s lawyer on Wednesday, May 7. The lawyer claimed that Delta's app symbol violated Adobe's ‘A’ log and asked that it be altered to comply with the law and Adobe's rights. After giving Delta until May 17 to reply, Adobe sent Delta another email informing them that Apple had been ordered to remove the Delta app because it violated its trademark.
