Just came across this bit where Gunbird on KAKAO (it's an IM SNS like LINE) has hit over 1 million downloads.

I'm confused. Is this a game or a social networking abomination featuring a shell of a classic game?

I think you already know.

KAKAO is an IM app platform in Korea similar to LINE where the majority of mobile games are played. Looks like they licensed Gunbird and transformed into a social game.

Fairly sure, another developer took a Korean developed mobile shooter and turned it into Twinbee for Japan.
