The other day it was reported that a fake copy of Studio MDHR’s popular indie game Cuphead had found its way onto the iTunes App Store, where the game not only looked pretty convincing in its listing and screenshots, but also had a website that mimicked the developer’s own website.

To top it off, the game was priced at $5 and given the popularity of Cuphead, we can only imagine how many gamers were excited enough to go ahead and make the purchase. The good news is that if you were one of those who paid for the game, you might want to check your email because according to reports, Apple is refunding users who purchased it.

While we suppose it would be right and expected that users who were tricked into purchasing a fake game to get refunds, some are praising Apple for being so proactive about it, although at the same time some are also questioning Apple for how they even allowed such a game to make it past the review stage in the first place especially given how strict Apple can be with their apps and guidelines for posting apps onto the iTunes App Store.

In any case the refunds should be going out as we speak, so if you did purchase it, keep an eye out for Apple’s email or your bank/credit card statement for the refund.
