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!

    Level 965 and only got the "mini games" twice at that point what's the point? There was a time where Garden scape had plenty of ads that showed actual gameplay what's the point in making ads from scratch and and coding a new game that appears less than 1% of the time such a waste of time and money

    Some people's internet is metered so downloading these based on misleading ads does cost them money no matter how little. Also some have hidden paywalls where you get to a certain point and have to pay money to get past that point.
