Available in the App Store

This is not an 'unique game', just a bad clone of Super Mario 3D Land.

Someone ripped off Super Mario 3D Land. As you should know, the App store is full of clones of other popular games, but this time we found someone trying to clone the amazing Super Mario 3D Land with terrible results.

The game description says:

But it's obviously an horrible Super Mario 3D Land clone. The game is available in the App Store for 0.99$.

First the Uncharted 3: GOTY edition was patched, which was no big deal as all the included patches are still signed with the leaked v3.60 keys.

But now suprize suprize, the latest COD: MW3 update has appeared, which is rumored to be signed using the v4.0 SDK system, which means maybe a flood of new eboots will be appearing soon now.


Also for those using F*uckPSN and the latest patches, you can go online and hunt down a few friends or enemys now on the COD map of your choice, of course until Sony decides to pull the plug on the new PSN passphrase that was recently leaked, allowing those with Jailbroken CFW v3.55 consoles to get back online!
