A malicious fake app that says the sequel of Minecraft appears but the content is too cheap
Minecraft, released by Mojang in 2009 and deployed on many platforms, is a globally popular game, and its popularity will not wane at all even if six years have passed since its release. Meanwhile, a game singing a sequel to Minecraft "Minecraft: Pocket Edition 2"Appeared in the App Store, although many users installed it, the content was far from Minecraft.
The number 4 highest rated paid game on iOS right now seems to be a fraudulent "sequel" to Minecraft. How this this stuff get through App Review?: Games
Minecraft: Pocket Edition 2 is as shameless as App Store games get • Eurogamer.net
The beginning of thing is that a user named verynayce set up a thread called reddit on the bulletin board reddit "The application ranked fourth in the paid version iOS games is a fake seeming sequel to Minecraft". Eurogamer.net who saw this thread actually looked at the App Store and found an application called "Minecraft: Pocket Edition 2" sold for $ 4.99 (about 580 yen). Minecraft for smartphones has been released from Mojang under the name "Minecraft: Pocket Edition" and I think that "Minecraft: Pocket Edition 2" is a sequel to the game no matter who sees it.
In the product information of "Minecraft: Pocket Edition 2", the seller's name is described as "Scott Cawthorn". Scott Cawthorn is probably a horror game "Five Nights at Freddy's"Scott Cawthon" known as a developer of the name "Kimono" is thought to be the name that tried. Also, you can feel the intention of the developer to obviously cheat the user, such as notation of Mojang's name in the credit.
In the explanation column of the game, it says "It is a game that can be made freely from home to castle" and it seems like a mine craft, but when Eurogamer.net actually installed and played it was far from Minecraft It turned out to be game content.
The actual play screen of Minecraft: Pocket Edition 2 becomes the image below, and if you have seen Minecraft you should know that it is completely different from the original game. According to Eurogamer.net, Minecraft: Pocket Edition 2 is a top-down swipe game that is just a top-down swipe game, and it is a content that will kill a zombie that attacks by manipulating a ninja in the center of the screen. Also, a ninja appearing in the game will appear in the fighting game Mortal Kombat "ScorpionIt is similar to the character "Pakuri suspicion is being touched."
Eurogamer.net has found the name "Viktor Todorov" in the copyright information displayed on the startup screen of Minecraft: Pocket Edition 2 and predicts "This person is a developer", but the fact is unknown actually is. Naturally, Minecraft: Pocket Edition 2 has been removed from the App Store, but sometimes I was ranked 4th in the American App Store ranking, so there are many users who accidentally purchased it pattern. However, I do not know whether refund correspondence will be taken for purchased users. In the first place, it is a concern about how the Minecraft: Pocket Edition 2 passed through which judgment of the App Store, which is known to be harsh, is clearly fake.
