All in the Game

Update: Google has now removed two of the games--after all the negative publicity, and after letting them live for a week.

Earlier: Yes, there's a Bomb Gaza game uploaded at Google Play--last week--and Buzzfeed has account. "It quickly becomes apparent that it is almost impossible to avoid bombing civilians, who are in the same buildings as the terrorists firing rockets at the Israeli jet."  Company PLAYFTW is behind it.

Google getting criticism. It is not the only game available on Google Play that involves bombing Gaza, including “Gaza Assault Code Red” that tells users to “secure the region” by taking control of “an Israeli UAV equipped with powerful weapons in an attempt to secure the region.”

Their next game is sure to be "Torture Some Folks". A sure fire hit among stressed patriots.
