Update Jan 11th:【Sexy City】was rejected at last. We'll release it for free!

【Updated Jan 11th】(See below)

BAD NEWS!!!【Sexy City】was rejected by Apple because of "pornographic"! That's NOT FAIR!

GOOD NEWS!!!【Sexy City】has been properly modified and we believe it can arrived on your iPhone&iPod touch SOON!



Some days before we talked about our upcoming puzzle game "Sex City"--a special and sexy Tetris on your iPhone. Do you still remember the advertisement we made on the front page of Toucharcade.com?

We appreciate for your patience and support! Lots of players show their interests on this amazing and special game. We predicted it to be available on the App Store before Christmas.

But unfortunately it was rejected by Apple because of "pornographic". Actually we have never exaggerate the sexual details and it's just a special and unique puzzle game. You know that. Lots of us may have played similar games on other platforms...that's not fair.

OK,so we comply with Apple's guideline and made some proper changes--nude boys and girls now have their underwears. (See screenshots) We hope and also believe it will arrive on App Store soon. If not,maybe we should put coats on them to overwinter.

Thanks again for your attention to 【Sexy City】!!!

12.21 updated:

BAD NEWS ONCE MORE!!!【Sexy City】was rejected by Apple again.

They have not sent an email to explain until now. It seems like we are still making "pornographic". So how can so many sex position apps and sexy games such as "Nude Girl" arrive on App Store? Do they think this game can arouse people's sexual desire more than those?

BUT we will not give up. We make up our minds to apply for arbitration to Apple! We believe our product and we want to make a great and special game for players worldwide!




【Updated Jan 11th】The latest news:
Yesterday Apple gave us a call and told us thought we put on coats on those boys and girls, it can't be approval:"Only Kamasutra and kinds of this can be published on the App Store." What a pity! We have made lots of efforts to release the game to players but it fails just because of Apple's old-maidish.

A lot of supporters sent emails to us and asked when can they play the game. We are so sorry that it won't hit App Store forever.

BUT WE ARE GOING TO CRACK IT OURSELVES AND PUBLISH ON THE INTERNET. If your iPhone or iPod touch has been jailbreaked, you can download it from iPhone game forums and play it for free! Sounds a little like Cydia? Er...We will upload it these days~

BTW, is there anyone who can help and provide us a free Server Space? Probably 1G to 2G. So we can build the worldwide score rank system. If possible, please send a private message via the forum or send an email to richiedwq@qq.com. Thanks for your support!

Epic!

"Pornographic"... LOL
Apple is so stupid.

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

Hahahahahaha this is hilarious news. Why was THIS rejected, but several stupid apps like "real sex" or "kamasutra"-ish ones aren't?!

Sorry to say this but I think that with the change, chance for a rejection is still high with Apple guys.

How is the droid market as far as games go? I'm so tired of apple trying to be the world police and I would like to use every feature my phone is capable of. I'm not interested in jailbreaking for fear that my games won't run properly and I have no interest in pirating games.

The idea behind this game seems kinda dumb, I'd reject it too.

The Droid Market is about a year behind Apple. And because of fragmentation between Droid devices (too many devices with too many different specs), it's very difficult to develop high-end games for them, so a lot of developers aren't even bothering.

Same here. But I think the competition is going to force Apple to be more lenient.

Sure it seems dumb but not a reason for rejection, this game has no pornographic images. Nudity is not porn
