Anyone ever notice the similarities between Porky's and Tax Avoiders?

The Porky's "Shower" screen and the Tax Avoiders "investment" screen are very similar in looks and gameplay.  Specifically, the placement of the ladders, the controls, and the way you have to be "next-to" a ladder to climb it.  They play very much the same.

 

What do you all think?

"fergojisan" is correct.  According to the box, the game was conceived by IRS Agent Darrell Wagner and developed by Investment Advisor Todd Clark Holm.  In actuality, this is basically a modified version of Porkys, and as it happens the same programmer (John Simonds) and software company (Dunhill Electronics) worked on Porkys.
