Default Topia World (Scam - Game kicked off AppStore)

Topia World (Scam - Don't Buy)
This game rips off 'Topia' which is a legitimate game.

I've just downloaded this and am reviewing it on Twitter if anyone is interested. I was kind of hoping it was a finished version of Topia that had somehow come back in time, was planning to sue, get the source code and save a lot of programming but it seems it's just some sort of point and click adventure with prerendered screens, found three whole locations so far. Getting bored of tapping.

You know, this makes me believe that half of the certification personnel at Apple may actually be bots if something like this can pass without notice. I mean come on, they had Topia in their newsworthy section! One would think they would notice this is to the same game, company and the like...
