What caught netizens’ attention is the “realistic graphics” image being advertised on the PlayStore as one of the description images.

While PABJE adopts similar characteristics as PUBG Mobile, its gameplay and graphics quality comes nowhere close to its predecessor. Players even rated the game an average 2.2 stars out of 5 and gave snarky reviews on the PlayStore.

Since it’s launch, PABJE has garnered a few hundred thousand downloads, an impressive feat for the game developer.

Despite a 2.2 stars average rating, users were urged not to be influenced by the reviews on the PlayStore.

“Please Don’t See Bad Comment Because The Many Users played 57 version of game but 77 game version is fixed bugs please Play And Support me please.” Quoted by the developer on the Play Store.
