    Default App scam: Don't buy "Halo 4" in the app store.



    If you happen to come across an app called Halo 4, dont download it unless you want to purchase a $4.99 chess game. At first glance, everything appears to be completely normal. The app even has screenshots from the game, but if you take a look at the reviews, youll notice a few red flags.


    This is what one unfortunate buyer had to say:

    Bought this app because I thought it had to do with halo 4. Instead, it is nothing more than a chess game. This is a serious false advertising issue and I am contacting the proper federal administrative agency to handle this situation. DO NOT BUY! SCAM! Fraud!
    Heres the description from the App Store:

    Halo 4 for iPhone/iPad is the fourth installment in the Halo series where Master Chief returns to battle an ancient evil bent on vengeance and annihilation.

    This version is iPhone/iPad exclusive.

    GAMEPLAY
    • Halo 4 is a first-person shooter video game, in which players predominantly experience gameplay from a first-person perspective.
    • The game perspective switches to third-person when using certain weapons, armor abilities and vehicles.
    • The players head-up display (HUD) shows real-time information on the player characters armor system, such as shield status, information on current weapons and armor abilities, and also display indicators for goals and objectives. The HUD also has a motion tracker that detects allies, enemies, and vehicles within a certain radius of the player.



    MODES
    • Halo 4′s story or campaign mode can be played through alone or cooperatively with up to three other players through Game Center.
    • In Halo 4 all players assume the role of Master Chief.
    • Players can enable skulls in the campaign menu which act as gameplay modifiers such as increasing enemy health, changing NPC behavior or removing elements of the players HUD.
    • The campaign also features terminals which provide the player with additional backstory.

    Its very possible that this app will remain live through the holidays during Apples scheduled iTunes Connect vacation. Be sure to warn your friends and family, this app is a total scam. Hopefully this fraud will get pulled before too many people are scammed.

    Update: There are now two fake Halo 4 games in the app store, here's what you get for buying them.

    Apple seems pretty lax today, I don't think they've taken this down yet either.

    They could at least make the chess game styled like Halo 4.
