Interesting thing was, the ads would try to load Google Play when touched. But there is no Google Play on my phone, same for most phones in China, so they wouldn't work. I removed the offending game, because it didn't work properly anyway, and now no more ads. I can't find a game called Turbo Racer 3D in Google Play on my PC and nor on my 4.0 Android tablet.

Has anyone else come accross full-screen popup ads coming from ad-supported apps and games? I know about AirPush notification-bar ads, but I don't think it was that.

I was originally thinking this might have been something that only happens in China, however..
1) The ads were in English.
2) They always linked to Google Play.
Sims FreePlay has full page ads.
