I've seen numerous games on Google Play with assets from https://kenney.nl/assets. It's really your call.

Thanks! And also I think if a coder or gamemaker did bought exclusive graphics then it shouldn't be on sale again by same designer. Am I right ? :geek:

That would be determined by the exact wording of the agreement. "Exclusive" means different things to different people.

from wich i know, if you paid for an asset that's also the license it provides. So if you have receipt and the other developer want to bother you he will have to talk to the designer. The designer could be sued but not you.
For apple any trouble about developer will for sure block you from the market, they only care about money.

I do have licence & receipt but my concern was about one another developer who used same graphic for similar game. So that is what is really bothering me.

You might change some graphic elements in the game so it won't looks too identical to other existing game.

Then just go with current development. It is hard not to see competitors having games close to each other especially in Google Play. There are games came with same gameplay and same graphics published by different developers.

Alternatively deploy your game into different platform.
