Baseball Highlights: 2045 Android app is usually $5.99!

UPDATE: Sadly, pirated version. Sometimes it is too good to true.

The catch with the Amazon version is you can't buy any expansions (at least at this time). Add-on's show up, but the button to purchase is grayed out.

Of course I don't seem to have any issues with letting Google track me ... but they do no harm, right? RIGHT?

I thought it's grayed out because they're already included. At least for the apps I got.

I'll ask if this is a pirated version. The developer info doesn't look right to me...

This is totally a pirated version. The Google Play store and iTunes versions are both published by Peter Kossits. The Amazon store version is published by Silent Omerta, Inc whose other games on Amazon are all published by random different developers on the Play store. They're clearly one of those "publishers" that just steal games from the Play store and republish them on Amazon.

Thank you for pointing out the publisher discrepancy. I purchased this last night, but they allowed me to return it (not typically their policy) because I had noted the pirated nature.

The person who helped me also said they would forward my concern to the appropriate parties, so hopefully this is taken care of correctly!

This is an illegal version of the game.

If you absolutely must run this game on your Kindles right now or can't afford what I'm asking for it on other Android tablets, I am sure you can find other ways of doing it which are better than giving this guy some of your money.

We should do our diligence and leave 1-star reviews, warning others not to give these scummy bros any money.

The pirate doesn't seem to have an Amazon "store" so there's no obvious way I found to report him (I've done this before with scammers "selling" popular games for 10% their retail price).

Several of us have left negative reviews warning about the piracy. I'm concerned though, will those one star reviews affect your overall rating?

Not really. I expect that listing to be gone within 24 hours and hopefully the entire Silent Omerta store.

Just got a lawyer last year. Looking forward to using him.

Google and Apple both asked for my credentials before I could sell the game. Amazon didn't/doesn't.

I think if you contact Amazon they might give you a refund.

They will. I've done this in the past with a game I later discovered was a pirated version.

I didn't know this was even a thing. Someone can buy a game on the Play store and resell it on Amazon? That's crazy. Thanks for pointing this out and educating me. He's not getting my money.

I emailed them, and they said they would "investigate the situation", but said nothing about a refund in their reply. Kinda pissed about it.

I also busted their chops a bit in my initial email about their inability to screen for pirated developers. I know they are a big company and such, but it seems like this could be easily prevented. Now I'm going to have to screen all amazon apps for piracy myself. Or just stick to the google play store.

Side note - just wanted to mention how cool I think it is that the developers themselves patrol these threads and weigh in so often. Part of what I love about this community.

Yes, there is not really much to installing Google Play Store on Kindles, don't need root - usually just enable third party (unknown) installs and put the appropriate four pieces (Framework, Acct Mgr, Store, and Services) on the tablet. xda-developers or any number of other sites have walk throughs (xda is usually my go to for everything android, and is a very trustworthy source of info).

Sorry your app is getting pirated in this really visible way Peter, it's a damned good game, and you deserve to be making that money!

Not to mention the pirated app seems to require a lot of access to your device. Wouldn't be the first time malware was distributed this way.

I recently reported Agricola All Creatures Big and Small, Le Havre Inland Port and Tsuro on Amazon as those were pirated versions. I contacted the original developers and let them know what was happening. I also asked if they will bring those games to Amazon since my Kindle doesn't support Google Play.
