What's going on? - StealthBomber Premium #2

StealthBomber Premium is suddenly #2 on AppShopper's bestseller list for paid apps:

Anybody knows why

It should be a standard feature that you can turn on/off in-game music and sound effects separately in all games

They pushed us back to position 3.

Thats really, really strange. They are not featured, are not on sale, have no update, are some weeks old and have only 6 ratings so far. And I cannot find any review on any bigger site for this app.

Strange, I've seen this happen twice to a dev called Federal Bureau of Apps. Both of their apps, phone locator and iBubbles, reach #1 on grossing with no ratings

yeah, #1 in games, but #2 (as topic states) overall. also #5 grossing last time I checked

I've noticed another really weird thing - MajicRank (very useful tool to trace rankings) shows that this game is not visible in ANY ranking (paid, games, adventure, action) except for US store...

it's either a bug or a fraud, no questions about that

It doesn't look like too awful of a game though :P But that'll definitely help their sales LOADS... Oh well.

Looks like they can repeat their "exploit" with "Snot Rocket The Game".

The same things apply. Old game, No update, no sale, no news, no reviews, but going straight to #4 paid apps.
