Yeah I would avoid this until you see a video or proper screenshots. Those screenshots tell you nothing about the actual gameplay. Ridiculous

Do NOT buy. Everything from this developer is a scam, believe me I fell for his other game infinity diablo, the name is obviously a complete ripoff but the screenshots are what drew me in. I requested a refund straight away.
I seem to remember the developer replying in that forum and basically said he's just going to keep making crap games until people start buying his games, he even admitted that his products aren't up to standards (which makes no sense at all). He doesn't seem to understand that if he put some more work into his games there would be more buyers, because most of his games are halfway there.

Found the post by the dev explaining why he creates these scam games:

in truth, i call all my game "trash" too ,except my first game "momo dig".

i must say sorry to you guys,this is my only way to live in appstore over 500000 apps.

you know how much money did i made from my first game "momo dig" --the one and the only one i could never call it "trash"?

151$!

how could you stand for this?

then finaly i found a way to make some quick money to live.

the way is "good graphic and trash game".

i have an "baseline" for my trash games.

----all game screen shot must use my game and captured in real game.

maybe i will add some effect in photoshop, but i won't use other game's screen shot or render it in 3d software, i could do it but i won't.

so, to "infinity diablo",i could say the screen shot is real for 95% but an trash game for 99%.

to the future. i can't promise you how much "trash" game i would to make because i need to live.

but the one thing you guys should know.

---only make trash game won't make me rich and to let me to make the game i won't call trash.

The all infinity diablo's art asset
(except the character--i bought them---i already made better character but i can't use them i will tell you why later )
were made in 2011,
i want to make an nextgen + zombie killing + monster hunter like + mutli player online game.

but at that time i was almost killed by my first game!!!

with over 6 month and 151$,how you stand to make such an huge game?

so i gave up it quickly.

this year i found my art skill were improved and could do better than those art asset.

so i use all this art asset made an trash game for some quick money then i could live more for 1-2 month.

but i could't use my character, because i want to make this game finished!!

i won't have my biggest game to be an "trash" game because an "trash" can't afford all my time and money.

call me and my game "trash" won't let me done,but please give a try when my real game came out.

how you guys find which one is trash which one is "real game"?

when it is out you will see.
While I can't respect his decision to try to trick people out of their money, I do sort of respect the fact that he owns up to the fact that this is what he is doing.

Weird...

Although it is rather hilarious that the same dev made this comment about a year before his other comment. The topic was "Why do Developers drop Chillingo?":
