App description: How far would you go to avoid a fashion disaster? Find out in the latest, greatest strategy game from BAFTA-award winning studio Littleloud.

An exceptionally funny game - PC Gamer

Inspired tower-defense/management-sim hybrid with lovely cartoon graphics, excellent ideas and a ton of little touches. - Gnomes Lair

"Sweatshop is a moment of brilliance, a piece of social commentary all the more provocative for its addictive mechanics - Hidden Exit

One of the most interesting things to come out of gaming I've seen in a while... - Daily Kos

In the end, whether you're willing to sacrifice some cash to treat your staff more humanly, or if you're fine with enslaving kids for a fast turnaround on the next designer shoe, is up to you and your conscience." - Wired UK

It is this reduction of human beings to numbers, pesky weak flesh in the way of the profit, that is Sweatshop's frightening strength. - PBS

Sweatshop reminds me of Theme Hospital, another game on a very short list of moralistic comedic business simulators. - Indie Games Ichiban

Featuring fast-paced strategy, black comedy and an affecting storyline, Sweatshop asks you to manage a madcap
clothing factory juggling the needs of clients with the welfare of workers.

Should you hire a fire officer to prevent the risk of workers dying horribly in an industrial blaze or pack them in to get the job done? Should you train workers
to make them more efficient and satisfied or fire them when they lose a limb in an industrial accident? How do you motivate workers: with generous treats and toilet breaks or an iron fist, long hours and verbal abuse?

Maybe you just want to buy a bunch of robots to do the job instead? Sweatshop lets you choose how you want to play, while challenging you to decide how far youd go to avoid a fashion disaster.

it's not just lately... it's been going on for a couple years now... pretty regularly, games get pulled, more often than not, they're re-released. Most developers who do this blame poor sales (at least the ones who respond to questions about it) - which is strange, especially when they're re-released under a different name (instead of a publisher)...

Blah... just the way of the AppStore. Not much you can do but ask Apple for a refund.
