Definitely a fake...it's by the same dude who made Topia World, or whatever it was called.

Why hasn't this guys account been shut down or locked or whatever? This is insane how this developer repeated does this with what seems no repercussions!

Rofl,he also has a Shinobi game with obviously stolen screens from the EA game.

Stay classy Apple!

Well his Topia World game got taken down but apparently that hasn't stopped him... How many offenses does it take for Apple to suspend a developers license? I would assume once since such practices are against the terms of agreement!

LOL, even better than you would've imagined! I plunked down my $3 knowing it wouldn't be a game, but appreciating it as a tech demo, just like Topia World. He did a great job of making it look like the natural progression from the first demo, but with stolen assets, only...

It is a game! Just not that one. It's 2D game with beavers jumping of a plateau with the player needing to bounce them off of a life raft to save them. Best of all, there are two pause buttons! So awesome.

Again, DO NOT BUY THIS, not even as a tech demo. Now, if you like collecting app store anomalies, go for it.

This is the real letdown,I mean "Ok,you decided to steal a company's assets to promote a fake app,thus becoming open to a lawsuit and creating angry customers,we've removed your game but please,keep using the AppStore" rofl...

Neways,I contacted both EA and SEGA,but it'll prolly take awhile for them to react with xmas and everything.

I hope you'll get your money back...at least use this as a way to put up a review on the store to warn others of the scam.
