Make The Earth Explode (AR cards)
This is an Easter egg that you can do in AR Cards. You need to have purchased the globe (if you haven't, you can purchase it for either 1 or 3 play coins, I forget which though). Go to the globe, and just keep shooting it. You will notice that as you keep shooting it, it will start to gradually turn red, until eventually... BOOM! The entire planet will explode, with nothing to see but just a message, saying "Look after our planet". The funniest part is that after doing this, you have to actually REPURCHASE the globe! XD Could this be some sort of, message? Could this possibly be an allegory on how we don't care for our planet well enough, and that if we don't look after it better, it will be... the END? Man, who knew Nintendo was so DEEP!
