So word has been spreading over the last 48 hours about a remake for a Final Fantasy game called Final Fantasy: Mystic Quest by Dark Design Games which apparently had the support of Square Enix behind it. A lot of major websites have reported about this game coming next month, talking about pre-orders going live and people heading to the site to throw money at it. As it turns out, this remake is does not have Square Enix support and is probably a fake.
Any time there is a bunch of big game releases launching onto Android, you can be sure that there will be those tools out there who release fake copies of the game. Whether the actual game is ripped and included, its completely fake, or stuff with malware and other not so good stuff, it is a part of life.
For those that go where no man has gone before, internet wise, for free application and games, may want to reconsider. It seems that a version of Rovio’s newest hit, Angry Birds: Space, is laced with malware and found floating (no pun intended) around. If the copy of Angry Birds: Space currently installed in your device came from anywhere but Google Play, you may be putting yourself at risk.
There is yet another fake Temple Run game on the Android Market and this one is perhaps the boldest one so far, quoting reviews of the iOS version in the description and even using the developer’s name for the market account and link to the appropriate Facebook page. Don’t be fooled though, this is fake.
PopCap’s incredibly popular game Plants vs. Zombies has been out on Android for a short while now. As with all very popular games, once in awhile someone tries to come out with a fake/broke/complete rip of those games. Well now there is one for Plants vs. Zombies.
It’s not often we get to use the Epiic Fail picture twice in one week but Vodefone must like it considering what they have done. Yesterday reports were that Vodefone had their entire launch shipment of the Xperia Play stolen from some store in New Zealand. Well the cat is out of the bag and it turns out it was all fake. Bravo Vodafone.
Gamevil’s newest release onto iOS and soon Android is an addicting little game called Air Penguin. It’s become such a hit that Gamevil is looking into licensing it out for merchandise and even a TV show! However, with success comes problems and a developer by the name of SAI has released a fake version of the game.
