  1. Cihat Çiray-avatar

    You could use better visuals and more language options. This app is featured in a school book for 8th graders in Turkey, my students want to try it but aren't proficient enough in English so they can't use it.

  2. Debbie Wells-avatar

    scope This is a great too, but I would like to be able to get it on the computer.

  3. Devora Davis-avatar

    game Nice game....It makes you think.

  4. Mariela Duncan-avatar

    article Very scary and depressing

    lovren Helping and useful

  6. A Google user-avatar

    unhcr 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?

  7. A Google user-avatar

    indir 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.

    apk 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.

  9. Rofannie Chan-avatar

    bilan 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!.

  10. A Google user-avatar

    summary 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.

  11. Fierce Lioness-avatar

    Brilliant.. very dead on with all the situations. . I rate it only 4 stars, because the game doesn't offer you many options and the storyline for each individual is way too fast (beat all story lines under 10 Minutes)

  12. Beatrice Gatta-avatar

    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.

  13. Aaron Mathias-avatar

    This app abounds in empathy putting you in a situation of ordered chaos with your imagination fuelling the way. It also changes one's paradigm of what "Conflict Zones" actually mean... A great app to understand the brutality of might against the helpless & the vulnerable & what would you do if you were in the thick of things....

  14. A Google user-avatar

    The program is simple, and effective enough to give an introduction to the plight of countless voiceless refugees around the world. Count your blessings and consider sparing some of yours to help bless them.

  15. A Google user-avatar

    Please anyone says something irrational, Pls remember that thus is not a shooter game where you expect action.this helps you to see situation through the eye of a regular human before things change for worse

    Used to show examples of hard choices. "Gameplay" could put more pressure of time limit to make choices - helpful if there were audio options for under 10yrs who sometimes distrust the small text. Everyone showed seemed to think a little more that refugees are just people.

  17. A Google user-avatar

    At first, I did not like the idea of there being a game in which you 'are' a refugee and click through tasks and see if you can manage to get to a 'safe spot', as it simplifies many aspects of their hardship. Nevertheless, this app is to be recommended as it virtually puts you in the situation of fellow humans who have to flee their homes for one reason or another. I hope this makes people realize the hardship of the life as a refugee.

  18. Sabella Hebels-avatar

    The whole earth should use this app composolary! People just dont know what these people have to go through and I wish that countries would be more willing to take these wonderful people into their countries for asylum!

  19. minnie drumond-avatar

    its good to learn how refugees work hard to save their family to escape to better places where they are safe and can live without fear i love this app because it helps people become aware of the problems that many people face everyday

  20. Emily Chamblin-avatar

    Great stories. Well, horrible stories. I'm a teacher and I plan on using some of these in my class.

  21. Monir AlSobari-avatar

    The app doen't show the refugees situtions imteractively so users won't know what refugees are going through or feel about them infact!

  22. G Sikusuma-avatar

    I live in third world coutry. I know how it feels with so called poverty, wars, lack of chance in finding good jobs etc. Just need to make this game more interesting to play.

  23. Holly Lester-avatar

    This game puts into perspective what it's like to have to fight to keep yourself and your loved ones alive. This game was very moving. I loved it.

  24. Laura Stein-avatar

    Great narrative that seems to capture how a real refugee would make difficult choices and brings attention to the reality of what happens to children and families. Brilliant app.

  25. A Google user-avatar

    This is not fiction, is happening every day as you read this review. What are you going to do about this?

  30. A Google user-avatar

    It doea get a bit tedious after the first few slides.

  31. A Google user-avatar

    You hardly get to make decisions and it's quite tedious.

  32. A Google user-avatar

    It's interesting but could use a little touching up. Sometimes you don't have a decision in what to do and only 2 of them are timed

  33. A Google user-avatar

    but needs a little work. Buggy at times, only three stories. Good idea though, keep at it, UNHCR.

  34. A Google user-avatar

    Ok game but lacked choices, good info tho

  35. Meera Beharry-avatar

    It reminds me of those "choose your own adventure" books I used to read as a kid. Could be a good teaching tool.

  36. A Google user-avatar

    I hope they didn't pay for this.

  37. J Gleeson-avatar

    No real options presented. Tedious presentation
