Jeopardy! World Tour

Jeopardy! World Tour at least has one thing going for it. The questions are actually just as difficult as what you would find on the TV show. Sadly this does not mean the game is any good. Between the super long loading times and the point doublers that can be abused, it doesn't even matter if you get the questions right. That's right, facing off against opponents does not come down to skill, but to who has the most point doublers. For a multiplayer focused game, that sure sounds like an easy way to loose all of your non-paying players, which points directly at the developer abusing its IAP system. As you would expect, Jeopardy! World Tour contains advertisements and in-app purchases that range up to $69.99 per item.

Evil Island

Just take a look at Evil Island's screenshots, and you will get a pretty good idea of what this game is about. If you are still uncertain, this is an obvious Clash of Clans clone. The twist in the design that differentiates it from its inspiration is the fact that you play as the villain. Hence the title of the game. You will build out your evil empire in order to take over the world. Evil Island is, of course, a free-to-play release, so that does mean it is accompanied by advertisements and in-app purchases that range up to a ridiculous price of $124.99 per item.
