Phone Apps Cross the Line

Android smartphones have released a new free app. Dog Wars. I probably don't have to go into great detail in order for you to get the picture. The game allows players to "feed, water, train, and fight" virtual dogs.

A petition has been started to have the game blocked. Visit this link to add your name to the petition:

Dogster's blog, has a great article if you would like more information.

Obviously, the game's promotors are defending their creative genius. Comparing it to such favourites as Crazy Birds. I'm not sure, but where is the likeness between a game that glorifies a "sport" which in real life results in prison time and cartoon birds plummeting to their death?
