    **Edit, I just found where people are actually posting this bug in the review of the game on itunes** So seems like word is getting around fast

    Well I am really sorry for anyone who put money in this game. The game seems to be just amazing. Until an unbelievably easy cheat was discovered. I am posting this here for you all to know and so you can submit an email to the devs to get this fix. I am lucky enough to where I didn't put any money into the game.

    To simply cheat, build any property that will get you income each hour. Then simply go into your ipodtouch or iphone and change the date to lets say year 2038 and log back into your game and wala you will instantly have millions and millions of $

    This post is not to simply expose the cheat, but to help protect people who thought about paying for the game. This is just a headsup to prevent people from being scammed


    I tested it out. Works easily. I then deleted my profile and deleted the game form my ipod
     
  2. first the bug that i found and now this


    so glad i stopped playing it

    I found a bug where after depositing money I somehow ended up with -800 cash...maybe someone attacked me while depositing. After that I tried to deposit my negative cash just for the hell of it...ended up with 184 quadrillion dollars! Haven't been able to duplicate that though, and a large chunk of that mony disappeared form my bank, which is fine.

    Ya.....buggy.

    Just delete the app and reinstall. Energy will be back to zero. Money will remain. ;)

    This time bug thing will probably happen with Car Jack Streets. But that may actually be a good thing perhaps..

    a well-coded game should prevent people from cheating. it's not like iMob is a board game.

    and how are they going to nab every single one? there are hundreds of new users everyday. I doubt the cheaters are "a few".

    sooo..... i tried that cheat to see what would happen, got tons of money, decided that would take the fun out of the game so I switched the date back and now im in the negative by millions.

    I just spent $20 to get 400 respect points but apparently i just ruined the game.

    This game sounds like an epic fail.

    out of curiosity I tried it and does what it says on the tin: you get masses of cash. I tried plqint for an hour like that but it's just not fun at all. It's like playing Doom with GodMode on but without the gore - pointless.
    I will reset my character but it's really no fun when a) others have cheated, b) cheaters may not update the app to continue under fair rules and c) you have 100 guys armed with police batons and pistols (legitimately, not bazookas) but still fail to beat 3 guys with pistols only. I don't care how high their defense is, that is really weird..

    Edit: I resetted. Stats are reset but mob members remain.
    Luckily they sort of fixed an issue where weapons do count now. You can have have 2 lead pipes + 1 pistol beat one guy with pistol. Makes more sense now.
    But still see Top Mobsters have negative values in the bank. Boooo....

    The negative balance just means you actually accumulated so much money the game couldnt roll that many numbers and show you a negative sign. If you keep buying stuff it will work.

    As for myself, yup deleted the game about 20 minutes after testing the cheat as it ruined it for me, However I knew I couldnt compete without it, but after doing it I couldnt handle the fact knowing it and just reset and delete the app all together. If they do fix this I will probably try the game agian and hope those who paid for the game will be rewarded handsomely.

    It looks as though the app itself contains all of this information. Why they let the console provide the date in the first place is anyones guess, but there is a way to get everything rectified. There may be an easier way to do this, and cheaper but:

    1. Buy 10 respect points and let the app load onto the phone, make sure the date is todays date

    2. Open the 10 respect point app, your settings will come over, along with the money, and everything should be positive.

    3. Remove the free app from your device

    4. Restart the device (to be sure it is clear)

    5. Download the free app again.

    When you start the free app, everything should be positive, and should look as if you never cheated. Please keep in mind you want a positive balance showing on the 10 respect point app before uninstalling/reinstalling.

    If you cheated and have negative energy, its an easy fix. When you reach the year 2038, delete the app. Change your date back to today. Re-download the app. Fixed.

    The whole community needs a reset. While we're waiting, here's more cheats.

    If you roll your years up, you are gaining cash. Try rolling an hour or two at a time for full energy to complete missions, or full stamina for fighting.

    If you are in the game and you see the time counting down for energy, health or stamina, wait for the point to be added to your stats. Then double click the home button to turn on the music option, press "Close". The field that gained a point a moment ago will now gain another one.

    Now look at yourself in the mirror and feel good about how you've got cash and power in a make believe world.

    Seems ironic that in a game named imob that cheaters will be punished.
