Thanks, sharp as usual @Rook
These Terms govern your use of our games provided on a mobile platform (for example, iOS and Android), online discussion board related to the games, websites (including www.smallgiantgames.com) and other related services (collectively the “ Service “).
You agree that you are responsible for your own conduct and User Content (as defined below in Section 4) while using the Service, and for any consequences thereof. You agree that you will not:
- use our Service to engage in illegal, abusive, harmful, offensive or otherwise toxic behavior, such as by repeatedly posting content on unsolicited basis or otherwise encumbering the Service, our customer service or other users;
use cheats, exploits, automation software, bots, hacks, mods or any unauthorized third-party software designed to modify or interfere with the Service;
- intentionally exploit any in-game bugs (for example, to gain advantage for yourself or harm other users or otherwise interfere with intended gameplay);
disrupt or otherwise adversely affect the normal flow of the Service or act in a manner that may negatively affect other users’ experience when using the Service;
- attempt to decompile, reverse engineer, disassemble or modify any part of our Service; and/or
- use our Service in any other way not permitted by these Terms or in conflict with the spirit or intent of these Terms.
Is it an exploit designed to modify or interfere with the Service? Maybe, sounds like it. Because it says “other related services”, “Service” is pretty broadly defined and may include the medium for purchasing stuff from the game.
Will it disrupt or adversely affect the normal flow of Service? Maybe.
Will it negatively affect other users’ experience when using the Service? Possibly, because others might complain that they aren’t being treated the same.
If you get around all that, are you going against the spirit of the terms? Maybe because the method seeks an advantage over others in the same region.
A lot of maybes, but I wouldn’t want to walk down this path.
