    Default Apple pulls mobile strategy game for including Taliban as enemies

    Military strategy title Afghanistan '11 has been pulled from the iOS App Store due to its inclusion of the Taliban as an enemy faction.
    This violates Apple's long-standing policy that such titles should not feature "people from a specific government or other real entity as the enemies" -- a ruling that has affected a handful of other titles over the years.
    The game's removal was revealed on Twitter by Iain McNeil, development director at the game's creator Slitherine, and spotted by Kotaku. McNeil lamented the move, adding "... and people wonder why we don't do iOS anymore."
    Responding to queries via Twitter, McNeil said the company has lodged a complaint with Apple -- as have some of the games fans -- and said the team "hope Apple change their minds and let the game back in the store."
    However, given the Apple has been pulling similar titles under this ruling for close to a decade now, this remains unlikely. The mobile platform holder has previously removed Pacific Strike for featuring Japanese flags, and a US Civil War game Ultimate General: Gettysburg for featuring Confederate flags.

    I think its a right move from Apple. I appreciate the efforts. I played the game on my alpha smartphones refurb iphone 7. Though the game was cool but avoiding the conspiracy its a good move from Apple.
