Kick The Buddy With Attacking Alien
"Kick the Buddy is a PERFECT METHOD OF STRESS RELIEF" trumpets the description on the iOS store for this game.
Archer's affection for this app where you can torture, dismember, incinerate and inflict damage of all kind on "Buddy" is only increased by my discomfort with sadistic iPad games.
Yes, Buddy is ostensibly an inanimate object, it is true. But you can add a photograph image to his face, so you can pretend to destroy someone more animate. Fortunately, our iPad camera is disabled and Archer is not motivated enough to import an image of his brother's face. He does particularly enjoy siccing the Alien on Buddy.
I find Buddy's face, with his realistic grin and super shiny button eyes, extremely creepy.
