App description

Make More! is set inside a factory where players start off with one factory worker and an overbearing boss. The boss demands that the worker constructs the prescribed product (by displaying its picture at the front of the floor). The boss then continually bangs his fists on his table whilst the employee works. Players can speed up construction by tapping anywhere on screen. Once the worker’s table is full of the prescribed objects, players then must press on the boss – which clears the table and earns money for the overall tally. As money is earned, more workers can be employed – filling the factory floor and hence earning money a lot faster. As the name of the game indicates, the aim of the game is to keep earning more and more so that the factory can continue expanding.

Reviewers comments

The most important things parents need to be aware of in this game are the ads, in-app purchasing and connection to Facebook. There are quite a lot of circumstances where players can earn rewards by watching ads for other games – these quite often feature war and violence. One featured ad, called “Choices”, showed a situation where marital cheating was discovered and the player needed to choose what to do as a result (this game had a developer rating set at 12+ for mild sexual content and nudity). There are also lots of opportunities for in-app purchasing – with the most expensive amount being $89.99.

Further to this, some parents may not be comfortable with their children playing a game that is solely about earning more money for a boss that gets angry very quickly and starts banging the table with an angry face – with the workers submitting with apathetic looking faces.

In App purchasing

30 = $2.99

110 = $9.99

420 = $30.99

1500 = $89.99

Golden Tools (2x all profits) = $7.99

Gambling

Advertising and product placement

Rewards are earned for watching ads for other games.

Gender stereo types and sexual references

Whilst the workers on the floor are of mixed gender – none of the bosses that the reviewer came across were female.

 

Coarse language

The developer gives a mild profanity warning, but the reviewer did not encounter any.

 

Game playing behaviour which may be of concern to some parents

The only thing to do in this game, physically, is tap the screen (to make the employees work faster). As faster tapping earns more money – continual fast tapping on the screen may not be good for young fingers and wrists.

About games and gambling

Most games contain elements of risk, chance and knowledge, that is why they are fun to play. There is growing concern about the impacts of simulated gambling games on the health and wellbeing of children. That's why we are identifying games that contain gambling elements on our site.

The State Government of South Australia's web site http://nogame.com.au/ contains information about these concerns.
