Help Me Understand The Attraction To Pocket God

I don't get it. You throw little natives into the water, into a volcano or some other death trap. I just haven't been able to purchase this app based on what I think it is ..... am I missing something?

It's not a game. It's for entertainment purposes.

I didn't purchase it either. I looks really fun for a few minutes, but then I don't get how there's any replay value, except after the updates.

Well the last update gave statistics for kills and a leaderboard. That adds replay value. But yes, for the most part, there really isn't much to do.

If you don't get it, it's probably not for you. For me, it's just there. If I'm bored, have a sec, and am mad at someone, I name a pygmy, and submit it to multiple forms of torture. Aaaaaaah...

Similar to Koi Pond. I think its supposed to be something mindless to occupy a few moments..
