1.0 out of 5 stars Invasive permissions July 25, 2014
By inigo

Retrieve running apps.
There is no need for any app other than a system / diagnostic tool to know what else is running. ESPECIALLY a game.
Just say no, and move along to any of the other offerings from developers who don't take their customers to be fools.

This game is ok but bloody and gory as you blow up and kill zombies. It is fun but it has you outnumbered 50 to 1 at times. But of course the zombies don't have hand grenades or machine guns.

The things that are bad are listed below where there are excessive permissions and 7 adware programs. The app even tracks your general location. It includes Facebook and if you log on the privacy permissions even state that they will collect your friends list. This type of data collection is uncalled for on a game app and for that reason I give this app 1 star.

Permissions:
* Read phone status and identity
* approximate location
* modify or delete contents of your SD card
* find accounts on the device
* full network access
* Google Play license check
* receive data from the internet
* view network connections
* view WIFI connections
* pair Bluetooth devices
* retrieve running apps
* prevent tablet from sleeping.

The app is 68.3MB in size and it installed 11.3MB in my device memory and 57MB on my SD card.

This game contains 7 ad spamming programs. They are:
AdMob
AdSense
GreyStrip
InMobi
Millennial
MobClix
moPub

It also includes Amazon licensing and Google licensing. The code for Facebook is also built into the app.

"Get information about the currently or recently running tasks: a thumbnail representation of the tasks, what activities are running in it, etc
ccom.android.vending.BILLING
Access coarse (e.g., Cell-ID, Wi-Fi) location
Access the list of accounts in the Accounts Service"

Spyware is spyware and does not belong in a game/app that the seller is charging the end user a fee to own. I can somewhat understand greedy programmers putting sypware in free games, but once you start charging a fee for a game/app, all spyware should be removed. Ratings will suffer for those greedy programmers who insist on putting sypware in paid games/apps. Fair warning!!!

Another problem is the BILLING permision, which does not belong in a paid for game/app. When a programmer charges for a game/app, the buyer would expect that it is complete, not missing parts which would require additional payments.

1.0 out of 5 stars Mega Marketing Machine - The Full Works July 25, 2014
Verified Purchase
LMAO!! So a FAOTD with serious permissions issues gets replaced with THIS?!? Not quite the Privacy Invasiveness of PhotoSuite 3, but it's the Rovio syndrome for sure. Advertising out the wazoo.

Read only access to device state <<--- e.g. Device State/ID, likely used for addressing advertising in this case.

Get information about the currently or recently running tasks: a thumbnail representation of the tasks, what activities are running in it <<--- In other words, when you long press Home-screen and get that carousel of current/past apps, this is what it reports back with.

Open network sockets
Access information about Wi-Fi networks
Access information about networks <<--- All three equals FULL Network Access to report back, which generally can be fine, but not with the baggage this is carrying.

Access coarse (e.g., Cell-ID, Wi-Fi) location <<--- What, to track local zombies in my neighborhood and send them my way? Actually, it would be used for locally directed advertising. Think I rather the zombies.

Access the list of accounts in the Accounts Service <<--- Not as dire, but still eyebrow raising considering the rest. Likely the main intent is to get a list of social/game networks for custom advertising/selling of advertising.

Allows an application to receive messages via Google Cloud Messaging <<--- Why hello device directed advertising.

This is ridiculous! I am not even going to bother with looking at the code as I am sure I will find adware, analytics, probably a couple social networks including an active game dashboard. Phhhhtb. ((I looked later at the code modules anyways, and yep, I was bang on with my guess.

1.0 out of 5 stars A Record-Breaking Day July 25, 2014
Verified Purchase
I read the recent negative reviews for this game and thought to myself "Surely we wouldn't be getting two worthless apps in a row from Amazon, would we?". So I downloaded it and have a closer look myself.

Now, it is immediately apparent that some of the permissions it asks for are unnecessary for normal functioning of the game itself. Looking under the hood, I found ad components, analytics, and even OpenFeint which has since been discontinued for some time. Add to that permissions such as push messaging this already smells like a portal for rogue marketing. And all this in a *paid* game!?

Despite the discoveries above, I wanted it to give it a test run to see how many of those dubious components are actually active & whether it connects to the Internet without asking. I tried it on my Nexus phone. It simply won't run. I can assure you that's very rare since the Nexus is a line of Google products with vanilla Android ROMs (and, no, it's not KitKat) & should be the most compatible of all Android devices (except for hardware-specific apps such as those that were coded for Tegra, but that doesn't apply here). So, I downloaded it on a Galaxy Note 3 too and -- Voila! It runs! But I never got to play it because it *crashed* as soon as I was in the opening scene! Restarted again, frustrated again. But as far as I could see, it tried to connect to Halfbrick Studios & EdgeCast's Content Delivery Network even before I was able to actually play it.

So, two consecutive worthless apps from Amazon FAOTD. That is - for me anyway - a new record; but a record that I wish I had not witnessed.

we want age of zombies for the fire!!!!!!
I got this game when it came up on the daily free app. Love playing it on my phone, and was super excited about playing it when I got my Kindle Fire. Needless to say I was disappointed when I found out I can't play it on my new toy! Humbug!!

I've been having this same issue, and just got off the phone with AT&T.

You'll have to contact them and have them "push" the update for you. Contact Technical Support, because most of the Customer Service people aren't even aware of the problem.
