I'll see what I can do... it's not like I invented zombies or anything, but what they're doing is pretty disrespectful. They even used "zombieville" (no space) as a keyword for the app, which is rather cheeky...

I just don't get why Apple's review process doesn't throw up a red flag when they get 50 copies of the same app in the span of a month.

Also ban the guy who is making 'Fish Live! Ver. 7.4018' and all those.

Actually if you look in the TA list at this very moment, here's what you can find:

Engines of War! Ver. 7.4018
Gunshock Racing: 7.4022
Undead LIVE: 7.4023
Engines of War! Ver. 7.4023
Mark of Mafia: 7.4023

They're all listed as 'NEW', even though I know that I've seen these and other similar crapps every day on the list for a while now. Engines of War even has 2 'updates' within 4 game releases in the ENTIRE STORE!

apparantly this dev also reviews his own apps and pretends to be a schoolgoer under the name App Grand Master(32 ville reviews).

Brings back not-so-fond memories of Khalid Sheikh.
I kind of like "Mystery Butt," though.

I was actually going to post something about this guy. It is just unbelievable that Apple would allow the same game around 32 times with 3-4 graphic swaps. He has maybe 5 total games each with atleast 10 graphical changes. This is ridiculous.
