If anyone has bought it or whatever could you tell me what it's like?

Looks dubious. A very high price and only one screenshot. I wouldn't buy it.

Have a look at Naruto RPG!
Look at Gamebook Adventures for iPhone/iPod/iPad!
I do app descriptions for free

If you mean: can I pirate games when I jailbreak? Yes you can. And no, you shouldn't do it.

As to this particular game, it's a sample game from a book that came out a while back on iOS game programming. The same game is available for free elsewhere in the App Store. So yeah, that's both fraud and a ripoff (including the icon, which was stolen from another game).

Even though I believe they Apple should police the App Store only lightly, I wish they would ban any vendor who engages in this kind of shennanigans (Top Best Adult Entertainment, I'm looking at you).

Ever since I first saw this "game" on the appstore, it has screamed "red flag" to me.
