This is where one game is selected as the topic usually, instead of a general video game related topic like in regular Level Up episodes, and is critiqued in a gentle manner. While the game may not necessarily be on Android for each of these Gamecrap episodes, the point behind what is being said can be applied to any platform of video gaming.
