I'm not out to hurt anyone's reputation. But its fairly obvious that this game has strong suspicions of being a scam.
I was browsing featured apps in the Android market and I came across "Game Dev Story". The description seemed really stupid, but the ratings were high. I decided to read the ratings.
Here are some of the 5 star reviews:
"Yardell: This game is like a black hole:. You start it up; it sucks you in;and then you're losing entire nights to it. A+!"
"Puzzlespider: As employee for one of the biggest game companies, I have to say, this is quite epic. Love it!"
"Richard: Great and addicting."
"Andy: Great game but dangerously addictive!"
"gskspurs: Additive! Works great on my DesireHD. Best game in Android"
(I think he means Addictive)
"Alan: I can't put it down, help! :-p Game is awesome!"
"Andrew: Horrendously addictive. The best game on android. I got so engrossed I forgot to go to bed last night!"
"Nicholas: Wonderful game. Very addicting. My wife and I are looking forward to an update, with additional content."
All the reviews <5 Stars
"Dan Noll: Cant refund? CANT REFUND???"
"Tomac: Worked ok for a little, then closed out suddenly (not force closed). Was stuck with a blank blue screen. uninstalled, couldn't reinstall without purchase"
"Jimmy: It wont install, wont refund and nobody will do anything about it"
"Anne Marie: I have payed for this game but it won't download !!!"
"Paul: Something's up with this, currency is yen and I couldn't get my purchase authorised!"
"Dylan: I payed for it but it said could not authorize, then it wouldn't give me a refund"
"Underattack86: Will NOT install on my DesireHD"
This game may not be safe. I'm not going to pay 3 dollars to see how bad it is, but since all of the reviews 5 stars or better claim that it is "addictive", and any review not 5 stars claims how it wont install, and no refund is given, I would be weary that this is a scam.
Please take the time and report this app to Google for them to do an investigation.
