Apple pulls 'Sweatshop HD' game over 'offensive' issues
Apple has again reiterated its policy that games are not the place for social or political commentary by pulling a UK-developed game called Sweatshop HD that was available for a few months on the App Store. The iPad-only app, which had players hire cheap underage labor and deliberately mistreat and endanger the workers in order to advance in the game, was meant to raise consciousness about such conditions in a variety of industries. Apple pulled the game last month after notifying the developers that it was "uncomfortable" with the game's premise.
