Brilliant idea Simple game with a message. Apple deleted this from their app store and it makes me curious why they would do that. Again its another reason I have switched to the Note3 because people here realize the enivormental impact and aren't afraid to show the consumer what the real deal is. Not to mention the money you send the dollar goes straight to charity. This is a brilliant game for children to introduce them to the sacrifice it takes to create that fancy mobile phone. A+++
