Fake Version of Cuphead Listed on Apple's iOS Store

Do I need antivirus on iPhone or iPad

But after an information dive by The Verge, we find that the website affiliated with the app is studiomdghrgames.com instead of the official studiomdhr.com. Everyone soon realized the app was a fake that had somehow managed to make it through Apple's stringent app review process.

It's published by Gregor Friment and not System Era Softworks.

The App Store listing is very low effort, with screenshots that aren't formatted for the device. "There is a "Cuphead" imposter app on the iOS store - this is a scam". No such place exists, in case you were wondering. At 9:50 AM I attempted to purchase the game from iTunes.

Xiaomi Rolled Out Mi A1 Special Edition Red Colour Variant In India
The latest entrant will also go on sale through all Mi Home stores, Mi Preferred Partner stores, and retail partner stores. Keep in mind that Xiaomi intends to sell limited numbers of the Red Mi A1 and you should pick up yours at the soonest.

Cuphead is unquestionably one of the year's most popular games, so it should be little surprise that some unsavory folks are looking to take advantage of that popularity. The logo was an official logo and even the company name was shown as the legitimate name of the company. Unless you specifically knew their URL did not include "games" in it, nothing looks out of the ordinary. It featured screenshots from the Xbox One and PC release, a description pulled directly from Steam, and even linked to a cloned version of the official support page. We've never seen a scam app of this level of quality before, and the precedent this sets is honestly quite scary.

We've reached out to Apple for comment, and will update this story if and when they provide it.

Whoever took the time to create an illegal app version of Cuphead must have been quite pleased with themselves when it went live this morning and sales started pouring in. It's typical for big games to be released without a single mention from the studio, as bigger studios will often employ PR firms which are notoriously slow compared to the speed of the App Store.
