Is "Bailout Bonanza" too political?

Was submitted on 2/18. None of our (TEN!) titles have taken more than a week?

Is it too political? Afterall, Apple didn't approve the "Obama Bounce" game.

You tell me:

Meanwhile, the Android version shipped. Crazy.

A late game is only late until it ships. A bad game is bad until the end of time.

Almost all games have been taking forever to be approved. I'm sure yours is no different.

Yes, we got the "requiring unexpected additional time for review" message.

Then tell me if I was wrong for making a new thread.

I'm not in a "happy place" right now.

See the link.

I'm worried because of the "Obama Game" rejection.

So far all we got was the "requiring unexpected additional time for review" message over two weeks ago.

It will make it. Bailout America came out. And Kyper got delayed to the point of death.

Kyper had to change the network high score thing? Right???

Nice game by the way. Reminds me of the Vectrix system.

Thanks for the info about "Bailout America." I think our character may be more 'political' but now I have some hope.

I think it'll make it. But that someone in a higher rank might need to review it so that's the "additional time".
