Hi,

I have just found this game on Google play and it have a little flame icon right next to its name right in the Title. I have never seen anything like this in google play. Is this game breaking Googles rules or this is legit? Anyone know?

Thanks

Is this allowed by Google Play?

Don't know if it's breaking any rules, but I've seen it before with a game called Lep's World.

I just googled it. These are part of Unicode standard emoji and not images.

There are many others like hot pepper, bomb, volcano etc. Check above link.

So this is fine with Google? Using these emojis in title name seem a little bit over the top. I can imagine that a lot of apps would like to use those to bring attention to their title and the store would looks like a circus very soon.

I never base what I do on GP based on what others have gotten away with. Thousands of peoples accounts have been banned because they did something they saw others doing on GP. Take it with a grain of salt but, I believe it's ok, I've never gotten any warning from Google because of the Emojis.
