    Don't you guys realize that all these mob/vampire/gundam/mafia/etc games are all the same ?

    I tried playing iMob but i soon realized after about 3 hours of play

    a) if you have a lot of money then the game isn't difficult to level up in
    b) there are no rewards when you do level up

    It's all text based, all repetitive, all done in the same manner


    At least WOW and other games have some kind of variability.

    You may enjoy epic pet wars then. It's in the same vein, but has a lot more to it. It's sorta like pokemon.

    these apps are an absolute joke and i've never understood them. so the guy that spends the most time online looking up codes and then typing these codes into the app is going to be the best at the game? this is what's fun to you people? looking up codes?

    and yes, there are now about 50 versions of the exact same game and you tools keep eating it up.

    not to mention the hacking on these games is out of control. i played imob for about 2 hours and was eventually attacked by someone with 1.5 million bazookas or something along that line...... how fun!

    I totally understand these games. They are about making money, plain and simple. You have the ability to purchase "respect points" via the App Store? Some of these "respect points" Apps are $49.99! Who's playing the game with who? The first one was iMob. This same developer realized they had a cash cow on their hands and started another one (iVamp, I think), then an explosion happened and now we have everything from pet wars to fashion wars. I believe these games probably stimulate the same part of the brain as gambling does, with the same result too, the player loses out.

    Starts out free, to hook you:

    And keeps ramping up:

    Notice the other apps this developer has too.

    Look at this garbage:

    There is a slightly addictive nature in some - very catchy - only one i'd recommnd was Drug wars - free, and great fun.

    Yeah, $49.99 to sell pastries through the black market. Those must be some really tough dudes to get away with that.

    Yup, DrugWars is dope! (sorry)

    I only play MafiaWars (it was the best looking one), and everyone in my Mafia has basically quit the game already. These games have no long term playability.

    Might have a look at epic pets wars.
