Problem with most phone apps is they want permission to things they should never ask for, my phone lists, microphone, camera? and all for a single player game?

But you're never explained to WHY those permissions are needed. Occasionally the Android blogs will have articles explaining why sometimes apps will ask for permissions that an app seemingly doesn't need yet really does.

Google needs to have devs write a simple permission explanation as to why an app needs permission to something, not just that it wants it.
