The game in question is called Afghanistan 11, and it’s supposed to be a historically accurate game that bases battles on real world scenarios. Slitherine took to Twitter to say that Apple recently removed it due to “People from a specific government or other real entity as the enemies.”

This isn’t the first time that Apple has done something like this. Back in 2015 when many people were removing Confederate flags from public spaces, Apple removed every app and game that featured a Confederate flag, including other historically accurate games featuring the Civil War.

Yea in mean time they still sell Nazi/Russian war games. So Apple is hypocritical even based on its own supposed standards. Nothing new there.


That’s ridiculous!

Apple is not a monopoly, so they can do this. That said, they are ridiculous for doing this.
