    I agree with you that Apple reviewers are at times super stupid but you shouldn't use that word. It sort of takes away from your message. But I agree 100% that they were stupid.

    I agree that Apple's review process could use some work but don't make games/apps based on a meme

    If you look carefully at the username and the content of the review you will notice that many of those reviews are bots.

    When a game gets like 20,000 ratings and 5000 5-star reviews that is a sign the system in which the App Store currently exists is absolutely rigged for cheating. Especially when you start reading the reviews and the username is something totally ridiculous and the review says nothing about the game.

    Apple need to seriously hire somebody from Amazon to manage their digital review content. Amazon may not be perfect but Apple is currently in another universe.

    Hey fabell.. yeah since becoming app dev since 2009, I got so many emails to purchase ratings. I never bought a single one. But looking at ratings/reviews on other apps, many are just mumbo jumbo words put together by bots (with a 5 star nonetheless). there are literally so many better apps by other devs but simply not found because the devs did not spend on AppStore manipulating techniques (such as review/rating buying).
