I read that earlier. That sucks. Hopefully it doesn't get rejected again. I think Apple needs to lighten up. Not everything needs to be goody goody.

I want to know what makes a successful studio like popcap who makes really classic gems like bejeweled, plants vs zombies suddenly decide to make a zzzz inducing, game with a retarded "adult" theme like putting a horse through a meat grinder.

Wasnt that good to begin with

It's more of a joke. When it's available in appstore buy it instantly.

there's an interesting interview with the designers on the 4th and battery website about the creation of the game

http://www.4thandbattery.com/2011/04...thony-coleman/

is it going to be free as the touch arcade article states?
-edit: oh, i read the end of that article on 4th and battery where it says it is free.

Programmer - Poker Invaders - An Action/Puzzle game - Free for a limited time!

Apple has become kinda picky.

To be honest, I'm surprised my first app wasn't rejected due to it's name - B'lox! which is a deliberate mis-use of the words blocks and bollocks (shouted out by the player when they can't complete a puzzle).

I wonder how many apps do fail for silly reasons such as those mentioned above. I know a friend's game was refused due to it stating "New features coming soon" in one version of his app.
