Yam The Killer Potato Free Download

Recently, it has come to our attention that someone has re-wrapped Blob Wars: Metal Blob Solid and is attempting to sell it under the name Yam The Killer Potato.

Since this is a GPL game, it is completely free to download, but the website does not note this (nor provide any source code for the modifications, which is a violation of the GPL).

You can download Metal Blob Solid from Sourceforge by clicking below.
