Mafia

Anybody tried this? Sounds interesting, but the screenshots look kind of iffy

Here's the iTunes link:

looks like a game where you just do stuff in menus no actual running and gunning. Will have to pass. Correct me if I am wrong.

Well the screenshots really don't show much in terms of gameplay.
Is this like a lemonade stand type game?

what i hate in these kind of games is that most of the times the dev doesn't even change the "standard" bottom buttons o_O (nothing against this game or any other in particular, just my rant about these GUIs)

Anyone playing this here?
Care to comment on it?
Does it crash often? Does it have a way so that people can not cheat on it?
How are the graphics on it?

I'm about ready to give up on iMob and now need to fill that "i'm Carlito" gap, lol

I'm playing it
I'm liking it. I keep coming back to it. I actually haven't played iMob so can't compare but I don't believe ther is any cheating here
There is no chat function even though it's an online game
There are no graphics. It's all text based. There is no crashing.

Do you have a particular question you'd like answered? I guess I couls always d/l iMob if you really want a comparison...

No No No.
Do not download iMOb, it keeps crashing....

When it was running smooth, iMob was pretty good, then people started rolling the dates on their iphones forward into the future therefore getting more money and experience points. And now, the game will not load at all.

Thank you for your reply, going to wait till tomorrow, and if iMob is still down, then i'm going to try Mafia.


BTW, if they do fix iMob, try it out, you can chat with your fellow mobsters on it.
