WarLords feels like a beta

Anyone else have trouble with WarLords?

Of course it's a copy of iMob, but full of bugs.
I've had my level reset to zero, I've attack someone gaining millions
only then to attack someone else ending up with a NEGATIVE 50 million.
Then I can not do any of the job now, I just get an ERROR, stating that I do not have the required resources even thought my energy is 67/67.

Man this game is full of bugs. Should I even do a YouTube review on this one (it won't be good) or just delete it.??? The is FREE, so maybe I am expecting too much????

What do you think?

I didn't want to say anything about this game, but it's really bad.

I'd rate the mafia games as follows:
1. iMafia (even before their awesome new interface update)
2. iMob (better in many ways than iMafia, but less strategic)
3. Mafia Live
4. Mafia: RR
5. Every other Mafia game
6. That $1000 glowing gem app
7. WarLords

It looks like it was designed on toilet paper with crayons; the screens don't even update (to get the new price/energy/whatever you have to leave the screen then come back to it); there are no countdown timers; the graphics are horrible, copied, AND stretched out; to get more mob members you have to give the app their EMAILS!!

I say avoid avoid avoid avoid...I erased it after about 3 minutes.

Oh and my favorite part, the "rewards" page says "Rewards are given by leveling up. We do not monetarily charge you for rewards." And then there is a blank black page. And then at the bottom, in red text, "we reserve the right to charge you monetarily for rewards". (That's a paraphrase since that app will never be on my phone again hehe).

Wow... this looks pretty bad. Lots of ideas blatantly copied from iMafia, uninteresting UI ... it seems like FizzyApps just decided to make a blatant me-too app and put the least amount of work into it possible.

I like their latest twitter update:

"We are sorry about the recent issues...we have found the following 3 bugs and are working on fixing them."

That's it. No list of the "following 3 bugs," and ... only 3?

Feh. I'll stick with iMafia.
