Voting on entries in the White House-backed game development competition has begun, and you'll find exciting titles like Balanced Meal (6 votes), Blubber Blaster (9 votes), Calorie Quest (10 votes), and Count Peas (7 votes) — and that's just for starters."

    When I was a kid I was writing my own apps. Now get off my lawn!

    Anonymous Coward's frustrations with his dysfunctional family were complicated by abuse of amphetamines and health issues including headaches that he reported in one of his final notes as "tremendous."
    A glioblastoma, which is a highly cancerous brain tumor, was discovered during autopsy that experts on the "Cowards Commission" claimed may have conceivably played a role in causing his actions. He was also affected by a court martial as a United States Marine, failings as a student at the University of Texas, ambitious personal expectations and psychotic features he expressed in his slashdot post.

    Why oh why would healthy kids require games such as blubber blaster ?

    They should be called apps for big boned, sensitive kids.

    And now what ? You're trying to blast their blubber away ? Seems like recipe for insecurity ... :/

    Better to create a game called "Life Challenged" wherein the object is to increase the worth of society by stopping being an oxygen thief - and there's only one way to do that. Achievement points for creative solutions ! :P

    it was boring "playing" there with only my sister for company.

    I know a very enjoyable thing you and your sister can do, just don't let your parents catch you doing it...

Someone is unenthusiastic about your work.
