Somehow, I have a feeling that the creator of "Cheat Tools" may have gotten the last laugh...

Mobile games are expected to be able to glean some profit from players; if someone makes something that allows them to sidestep imposed limitations... yeah, that's gonna cause trouble. This is ignoring the problems with tampering with licensed code.

Long story short, this is yet another case of "don't mess with stuff that isn't yours".

Unless they've changed something over the past year, it was extremely easy to open the games files and change the monsters stat values to ridiculous numbers so that it was impossible to lose and you could one shot any enemy in the game.

That might want to be something they address.

I just have the image of a SWAT team kicking in the door of some teen nerd, submachine guns pointed.

Way to lock up all these menaces to society and keep gacha scam companies revenue safe for another day Japan.

Something similar was actually done when federal investigators uncovered the identities of Lulz Security, albeit without submachine guns (but they were still armed).
