Lacking in effort, therefore disrespectful to the endeavor The idea behind this game is monumental, but only if it can in fact be played like a game. It must also be socially interactive, though this will dredge up underlying resentments between users. Nevertheless I believe that is, in some ways, the point; the existence of refugees at all is a blight on science, religion, and society. Humanizing the dehumanized is the point yes?
Embarrassing The UNHCR are a brilliant agency, but this app is a waste of time. I suspect a digital agency made it for them for free, hence them not rejecting it. You hardly get to make any decisions, and the story's tedious. Read What Is The What instead. Much more interesting way to find out about the plight of refugees.
Great app I found this app, actually kept me on the edge of my seat... Pretty fun, it shows the refugees's struggle very well getting happy or sad at the events and the endings i come upon... the only thing is probably maybe have more choices and more timed choices... Overall a great app!.
For a ngo of such global capacity better effort could have been put forward in designing this app to achieve the outcome of increased empathy towards the refugee crisis. The graphics were poor and the automated responses doesn't necessarily generate that sense of understanding in the refugee crisis.
Educational and moving! This is a great app. It's really educational about the plight of refugees and helps you to see things from their perspective. I think most of the bad reviews wanted it to be Angry Birds: Refugee Edition. It isn't that, its something much better. It'll actually teach you something! Would be great for kids to help them understand the cause.
No real choices Whatever choice you make, the story goes on the same. You wait for your brother? He gets caught anyways. You stop at your uncle's? No one's there. An ebook or a motion comic would have been better. And I gained no new knowledge nor empathy from this app,because the feelings and thoughts of the characters are never really developed. You would expect more from one of the most famous humanitarian organisations.
