ASCII Wars approved... after 1.5 years

Hi guys,
ASCII Wars has finally been approved.

It was first submitted in May 2009 and a week later got rejected.
The second try was in the end of January 2010 when the review process took 2 weeks, but again, it was rejected.
I decided to resubmit it one more time in September after Apple released their AppStore developer guidelines. After couple of e-mails with the AppStore team they finally approved it.

I think this app is a great example of how much Apple's approval process has improved in the last month. There are no more reasons for the developers to move to other platforms.

Check it out. It's free.

Interesting, but... not a game.

Yeah, I was expecting a game also

Anyway, congratulations on your approval!

A) Why did you keep getting rejected?
B) What exactly is ASCII Wars? Is it a game? Is it a text based game?
