Isn't this the app that just ends up being sounds?

Yes it is.

That should be part of the title just to warn people again. It says in the description (way down at the bottom) "80s Arcade Games Special Edition does not contain actual games." But you'd easily never see that.

DO NOT BUY

I'm fairly certain this is the same scam. Looks like a different company, though. It's clear that Apple's failure to quash this behavior is quickly leading to an epidemic as this is the third such title to appear.

I'm starting to think we need to organize a protest to get Apple to remove these titles and refund everyone's money!

scam

its the pryamid scam for the iphone, 99c is perfect, no is going to ask for a refund, theyll prob pick up $100- $300per game add, and you cant post a review on app store unless you buy it, i would say they prob target all the areas,. really need to wait for video footage before buying anything, any ideas on how to stop?

probably best to keep the thread and put scam in the title so others can see.
