There was a bit of a hiccup in the iOS world when a seemingly innocent version of the popular run and gun action game called Cuphead decided to show up for sale in the app store. Well, that version just so happened to be a major scam that ripped off a lot of people. The iOS version of the imposter looked totally legit, there were screenshots of the real game and they even bothered to list the real developers of Cuphead, StudioMDHR. With a very keen eye you would have noticed that the fake iOS game app links its page to “studiomdhrgames.com” instead of the developers main web domain, “studiomdhr.com.” If you were one of the people that did purchase this game, you would see “StudioMDHR Entertainment Inc.”, which is incorrect as well.
The webpage that the fake game app links to is not owned by anyone that works for the real Cuphead developers. Its registered to a person by the name of Walter Gregor that live in Washington. The real StudioMDHR site is uses privacy guard software services as it should, since it’s a legit company. StudioMDHR posted a tweet on Twitter to acknowledge that they’re indeed aware of the fake game app in the iOS store. They also told their followers that “we are working on removing the fraudulent app ASAP!” The buyers that were scammed can actually play the game on their device but it’s not quite the same as the touch controls are way off, the background graphics are low-res and the motion of the animation is wonky. People are still scratching their heads as to how Apple let this imposter slide through and into their iOS store.
