Google is facing angry criticism for allowing “absolutely disgusting” violent games based on the bombing of Gaza to be hosted on its Play app store.

Smartphone games such as Gaza Assault: Code Red are available openly on the store, where the player takes control of an Israeli drone equipped with “powerful weapons” over Gaza. A description of the Android game says: “Terrorist cells are launching rockets into your country, do you have what it takes to protect your citizens?” The software allows users to play for first five levels for free, but then charges for a full version.

Another game, which is free to download, is called simply “Bomb Gaza”. The game’s logo includes an F16 fighter jet, as used by Israel’s military, and the description tells users that they must “drop bombs and avoid killing civilians”. The game was added to the Play store on July 29 and has already been downloaded between 500 and 1,000 times.

One Google user who commented on Bomb Gaza’s description said: “To think that you can turn genocide, murder and ethnic cleansing into a game is absolutely disgusting”, while another said it was “utterly shameful”.

A third user added: “My beloved brothers and sisters are dying in Gaza and some stupid ignoramus decides to make a game like this.”

If you see goodness from me, then that goodness is from The Creator. You should be thankful to The Creator for all of that. Cause I'm not the architect of that. I'm only the...the recipient. If you see weakness or shortcoming in me it's from my own weakness or shortcoming. And I ask The Creator and the people to forgive me for that. _______________________________ Website eigenaar voor een betere wereld en doel, niet gericht op verdiensten van geld maar goede daden.
