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 best MNthe videos have no ads

  • Worst thing is, what do they get from you downloading the app just to uninstall it a minute after, or even making you go to the app store just to quickly get out of it? I know they aim for a targeted audience, but those little "X" to close the ad make no sense to me!

  • The weirdest part to me is that while Gardenscapes and Homescapes are one of the biggest offenders when it comes to these ads, they're actually pretty enjoyable puzzle games (at least when I played them a few years ago lol) not sure why they felt the need to make horrible clickbait ads when the games are solid.

  • Started playing the game GardenScapes well before they added the mini-games and started seeing the ads. I remember seeing the ads and thinking, this isn’t in the game. Recently came across a couple of the mini-games. Started playing another game that showed some of the same style of game as well, and when you reach a certain level you see those style of mini-game and there are other mini-games in that game as well. Shouldn’t be too hard to show players what they will actually be playing.

  • So basically mobile game companies that give false advertising are not getting lawsuits/punishment for violation from the FTC is because of just money.

  • Yeah I get that from the FTC standpoint its small fry, but stealing other game IP in the ads is still copyright infringement and wrongly associates one product with another. That's a different matter. When people see footage of Read Dead Redemption in a mobile game ad, they may incorrectly assume there is an endorsement or collaboration. Rockstar could sue for brand harm, eg.
