Gamers are loving Krunker.io for its fast and furious pace and funky graphics. Parents and teachers not so much.
Why you should worry
It’s all about gun violence
Well, duh. It’s a first-person shooter, after all. Krunker io players can choose to arm themselves with assault rifles, rocket launchers, revolvers, light machine guns and pretty much everything in between.
It features chat with adult strangers
And like all such games, abusive, offensive or just plain aggro voices abound.
It’s free … til it’s not
Developers do not release “free” games out of the goodness of their hearts. They do it for one reason only: to make money through in-app purchases. (That’s how Fortnite, another “free” game, managed to earn US $2.5 BILLION last year.)
