Game Theory: Are Your Mobile Games ILLEGAL?

SUBSCRIBE to Never Miss a Theory! ►

I'm sure you've been playing a game or watching a video on your phone when suddenly it is interrupted with an add for a weird and fake looking mobile game. I've seen a lot of channels try out these games to see if they play as advertised, but they haven't covered what I find most interesting about these games. Are they LEGAL? False advertising is a dangerous game, Theorist, so why do these mobile games get away with it? Let's find out!

  • the uk government literally made certain ads illegal whilst they frick around with brexit (something that affects my future that i of course didnt get a say in -_-), enforce covid policies that our prime minister breaks, and literally enforced homophobia by rebranding the rainbow to mean the nhs and getting people to purchase pride flags in bulk and claiming they were for them

  • Mobile ads are gonna get charged soon a mobile game is gonna make a false very inappropriate ad and when you install the game it bombards you with fake antivirus ads and then you will get a virus and the ftc will ban it and charge this game but instead of just cracking down on 1 game they will crack down on all misleading ads so this wont happen again

  • Ad company's for decades exploding loop holes,they watching you through you cameras on what you wear so on and the ad camra hacking and mic has been used since first tv hooked to the internet with cam came out.There a lot of angry people about this.the servers use grey ware to connect to your phone or Xbox can and rec what or it hears besides using your machine or unique browser id than try to match your interests. The cam hacking is probably more rare but they hit your browser or youtube id.That is why you here comments being funny about porn adds on youtube but the next person has soap adds on the same channle lol.

  • There’s a game that I actually downloaded because I would be bombarded by the ads, it’s called game of sultans, it’s got a pretty misleading ads and I was kinda disappointed when I started playing but I still gave it a chance and it’s actually pretty fun and I’ve even made online friends who also played and there’s no ads that actually bombard you, the only time you see them is when you want to get in game currency.

  • the most brilliant game ad idea that i’ve ever seen is that one where it lets you to play a bit and then, at the moment when you expect it at least, the next click throws you to the download page. it’’s like sure more efficient than these “SAVE THE FISH” ads, where the very first click sends you to the download page. post scriptum. the funniest thing is when you experience that type of ads too much and end up remembering what click exactly will send you to the downloading page.

  • It just goes to show just how cancerous money has made our society - that people are willing to do anything in pursuit of it. Sure, it's not -hurting- anyone, but in the end, it's still sleezy; and it's a slap in the face to game developers who put their blood, sweat, and tears into a game - just to have these half-baked mobile piles of junk rake in profit even when they are an almost literal pile of garbage.

  • I saw an ad for a numbers game that looked cool, but when I downloaded it, the numbers part of it was a mini game in a game of minigames, the artwork was also crazy, anime character interacting in a 3d cg world with 2d western cartoon characters, stick figures, modern western comic book like characters, and other types of character designs. Between the 5 different mini games all mashed into one and the 10 different art styles I immediately Uninstaller it and left a bad review.

The game which had a real ad was ragnarok x, a real 3d mmorpg unlike the other games who are purely 2d and just say 'oh it's a great 3d world to explore' or the other ads draw really nice characters and when you Download them, you see PIXELLATED CHARACTERS......

KGflow won't let me report and it makes me feel disgusted of how KGflow let's advertisement like this on their website.Lots of kids watch your damn websites and no they don't use KGflow kids. If a 15 year old has to tell you what you're doing is wrong then you have no hope anymore.
