Dino egg by... DS effects?

I have a serious dilemma, DSe have released a new game which like a clone of one of my favourite web games, the graphics look alright.
1 problem, the creator, oh and the fact that no-one has reviewed it.

So what should I do take the risk of encouraging people to crap all over the appstore andwaste my money or hold back.

I don't want you to buy it because I said to, and then have you be angry at me, but if you like that type of game it may be worth the risk. Up to you though, depends if money is a huge factor or not

I considered it before I saw the developer. If you do happen to purchase, plase let me know what you think!

Anything made by DS Effects is an automatic failure. Stay away.

I think this is a good lesson for developers. You can easily get labeled as a poor dev, and ds effects is clearly suffering from people knowing not to trust them. So, long story short, make good, reasonably priced games and you'll be set!
