Drawing in millions of dollars along with several different kinds of merchandising opportunities. As an android user I get to enjoy the game for free, unfortunately I haven’t taken full advantage of this and have only played them a few times. However, those times I did play I enjoyed it, it’s a mindless way to pass the time. Isn’t it great that our phones can do so much these days?
