Fun Game, Just Not Right For Everyone
Pocket God is a game for the adventurous preteen (or teen, or, yes, adult) who would sometimes like to mess around with the lives of a few little guys who aren't going to fight back. Available on iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, and Android, it provides a good way to waste the time away. While some may argue that the violence made easily available as a turn-off and pass the game off as torture, there are also funny and just plain wacky things the pygmies can do, not just kill. They can dance, fish, use the outhouse (door closed of course), belch, fix their hair, and perform for the engaged player. Kids can draw double rainbows, collect trophies in fun challenges, play minigames galore (including tie-ins from other popular apps Doodle Jump and the Moron Test), and even transform their pygmies into zombies and ghosts (all in a nonviolent fashion!) Pygmies are playful, adorable, and completely entertaining. All but one (Charlie, who turns into a tiger) get along in harmony, and even in death, there is no gore or blood, and let's face it, what is better entertainment than feeding a Pygmy to a shark or volcano or tornado or giant ape every once in a while? Pocket God is actually less violent than many other games geared at preteens. Not for the faint of heart, but Pocket God offers a world to explore for the fun-loving gamer, and at only $.99, Pocket God is affordable and provides hours of fun (at the expense of a few animated, lovable little cavemen).
