Post by polob » Thu Dec 06, 2018 11:30 pm

hi ....
I've received this message
"Apple removes AFGHANISTAN'11 from the AppStore."
today ...

It's a fake ? or a true message ?

I'm not a fan of the 'pomme' company
but if it's true i'm happy to have a samsumg / googleplay user ...
I'm playing AFGHANISTAN'11 since the beginning of Viet'68 :D
and i'm surprised such a company boyccot such game
I don't understand this message
If it is a fake, and i was smapped by another website, you can delete this messager with my approbation !

sorry for my poor english, it was not my mother language...

Is there a channel where by we can contact Apple and voice our views on this? Not that it will change much.

Interestingly, Ndemic, the devs behind Pandemic Inc., just released a game called Rebel Inc. on the Apple App store very similar in concept to Afghanistan '11 (it doesn't specifically reference either the ISAF or the Taliban but the graphics are clearly geo-typical Afghanistan or similar).

Either Apple isn't aware of it or it slips under the radar of "people from a specific government or other real entity as the enemies" since it calls the thing you are trying to stabilize a country against generic insurgents.

Apple hasn't moved to take down any of the Tiller apps or Slitherine's WWII titles. Germany during WW2 was definitely a real entity during that war.

This situation is like the whole Ultimate General: Gettysburg flag fiasco.

This makes me angry at Apple, but will probably pick up the Royal Marines DLC to support this game.

I plan on purchasing *because* apple pulled it. Screw them. Shame it's not on Android.
