GET RID OF THE MATURE ADS WITH TORTURING WOMEN!

davidfisherdavidfisher Posts: 162 Level 3

I am going to keep on bringing this up until something is actually done about it.

This is a G rated game.

There is an ad where women are tortured, hanging from the ceiling, with an evil laugh in the background.

Children are seeing this ad. There is a good reason why there are laws to protect children from seeing this kind of thing. It is actually traumatic for them.

Not just children, but adults can be triggered by scenes of abuse like this.

King is responsible for getting rid of these ads, even if they are using a third party to show the ads -- it explicitly says so in the Google Play terms of service (see below). In a court of law they would be held responsible.

Please do something about this immediately, and make an announcement that it has been done.

    Hey Bandicoots! πŸ‘‹

    We are very sorry to hear that what happened to you guys!

    We know that this game is for everyone and we want to make sure that our players have fun moments while playing our games but we know that it's going to be terrible if the children under 13 years old get triggered by this ads and so as we saids, we will report this into the studio so they can take appropriate actions against these ads and the companies behind them!

    Thanks so much for your reports! πŸ’“πŸ’ž

    We appreciate your effort to keep our Multiverse clean... πŸ˜‰

    See you in Wumpa Island... πŸ‡

    I realise @MightyWolf previously wrote: "The problem is King can't able to see all companies ads and even though Google is responsible for that because that ads system was made by Play Store team that you've see and also Google didn't take care of these inappropriate ads"

    Nevertheless, my repeated experience is that these violent and abusive ads do keep appearing in Crash on the Run, who need to do something about them immediately -- not wait for Google to get back to them in a week or a month's time.

    Imagine if it was something worse -- say, child pornography. Wouldn't that be enough to take action and stop the ads immediately, even if it is a third party's fault? Because if not, as I said, children are seeing these abusive ads right now.

    (The ad is for a game called Puzzles & Survival by 37GAMES but there are other mature ads too).

    As I understand it is the fault of Google ADs and King is only using the service, but I hope there is a way to remove this, because it is absurd to have this type of ad in a game for minors.

    I have also encountered ads that encourage gambling, which is definitely against the Google Play advert ToS

  • GloInTheDarkGloInTheDark Posts: 63 Level 3

    There's are at least 3 different ads for sketchy-looking apps that claim will pay you to play games, or that claim you can win money on free gambling games. I don't remember the exact names, but Neon Joker something, one with the word Monkey in it, and Mistplay (that one seems fairly legit). There is that creepy Puzzles and Survival ad with the dude caressing scantily-clad bound women's faces...


    Yeah, there are too many questionable ads for a game that is G-rated. They don't really bother me, but kids shouldn't see these.

    WTF bro, how and why do these types of ads appear to you in game? in my case i only watch ads of a warrior killing a crab with a knive πŸ€”πŸ€”, i would like to see something more interesting 😏😏 ..... looool

  • KennyMccormickKennyMccormick Posts: 28 Level 2

    That's terrible. My only ads are Match Masters/Crab Thingy Game and State of Survival.

    I noticed the game already fixed this issue. Never seen random ads lately just purely other games from King.

  • davidfisherdavidfisher Posts: 162 Level 3

    Yes, it might have been fixed in version 1.20.68

    I wish they would make official announcements about these kinds of things!

    @MightyWolf The mature ads are back again. I haven't changed anything; this one just appeared again:

    Name: Puzzles & Survival

    From: 37GAMES

    Appeared: May 17th 2021, 4:36 pm UTC+10

    Issue: Images of torture of women. Not suitable for a G rated game, and not something I ever want to be exposed to either.

    Either King or Google need to find a permanent solution to this problem.

    This is still a very serious issue; displaying ads like these to children in other contexts such as TV is *illegal* for good reason.

  • MightyWolfMightyWolf Posts: 15,581 Legend

    Hmmm that's freaking bad!

    King have to take a appropriate and illegal actions against 37GAMES!

    I'll tag @QueenMia to take a look at this!

    Even though I think you can report while watching an ad on the game... πŸ˜‰

  • KennyMccormickKennyMccormick Posts: 28 Level 2

    The only ad I get from Puzzles & Survival is when he swim underwater to peek on a girl which is so uhmmm uncomfortable. Next time if I see those kind of Ads I will try to report them.

    I encountered this "AD" the first time today while playing some survival runs. Some people on the Discord too did report this one to the devs there already.

    Guess we just have to wait and see until they do something about it πŸ˜…
