Money Grabber

This game is craftily engineered to hook you and encourage you to spend your real money. The quests are impossible to complete unless you spend. All the tasks take very long to complete (can be more than 10 hours) . You need LPs to finish the tasks quicker which is fine, except that you are given very little and it takes a long time to get a good amount, thus you are easily tempted to buy LPs from real money. This is addictive to an adult, so definitely not suitable for children! Trust me. Oh and last time I played I also got a computer virus from one of the ads on this game
