    Do NOT download any 'games' by NCM. These are all frauds. You download the app and when you open it it says it needs to download more content to play the game(s).

    Then it will just sit at the download screen for hours if you let it, circumventing the 15 minute refund window.

    Here are the following title(s):

    Siege Hero
    Resident Evil 4
    Call of Duty Zombies
    Infinity Blades
    Plants VS Zombies

    They are playing off of the popularity of the LEGIT games that are available for iOS.

    Again, do NOT download or install ANY of these or other titles in the App market by NCM.

    There have been a rash of devs that are doing this, charging $1 for an app then once installed it will freeze on a "downloading extra content" screen trying to get people to wait longer than the 15 min window to avoid the refund. Nasty little trick.

    Generally if you are looking at a game you know is an iOS hit or from another console it would be a good thing to google it to see if the dev is actually making the game for android before purchasing it, sure it takes a few mins and $1 may not be that big of a loss to you but why reward scam artists?
