Tapping of the Dead x5?

Why did five versions of this game called Tapping of the Dead show up in the App Store at the same time? Two are at $1, one is at $2, one is at $3, and one is at $7.

The (only) YouTube video is bizarre. Makes me wonder how these games got past quality control:

I saw this as well. Even if this was free, I would still not pick it up...

Wait so what do you do in the game? Do you really just tap the "dead" adn the screen flashes? >> Did he really spend time learning to code to make this game?

I think some of my favorite things about this are...

The name of the company (Super Art Software). I'm not even sure a liberal view of the word "art" is appropriate here, much less the word "Super"

The way you can buy individual version for each monster/zombie, or the deluxe editions that have them all

The promise of a "high-quality promotional video" (their words form their website).

More great music from APOKEFALE... I have no idea what the guy is doing to the animal skull on their band pic...


Anyway... there are too many things to love (sarcastically) about this game(s). I just wonder how ZombieMangle ran into trouble when this seemed to go through -- multiple times!

Who knows how it will do, the controls look way too difficult for 99% of the iphone users out there tho
