    Why would a simple game like Classic Simon by mobikats ltd require access to internet and phone functions?

    Internet access could be to deliver ads, if it's an ad-supported free game. Dunno about the other.

    Phone is probably so it can pause the game and allow you to answer a call while playing...Just a thought though, not sure...

    Yes, or it could be to mute the app while in a phone call.

    The "read phone state and identity" permission can be used for many things.
