Liyla Makes It To The Games Section In App Store

Liyla On The App StoreLooks like it is possible to get the lumbering behemoth to budge. Last week we wrote that Apple had rejected Liyla and the Shadows of War as a game. They wanted the game classified in the News or Reference sections. Yet, to anyone that actually took the 10-15 minutes to play through the game, it is clearly a game.

We now learn that Apple has relented and classified Liyla as a game.

UPDATED: Apple Rejects Game Based On War In The Gaza Strip As “Not A Game”

Liyla and the Shadows of WarUpdate: Apple has relented and classified Liyla as a game.

When is a game not a game? According to Apple, the answer is when said game has a political message. At least that is what it is telling Liyla and the Shadows of War developer Rasheed Abueideh when it rejected the game.

In a tweet from the official Liyla Twitter account, the developer expressed confusion over the rejection. “Unfortunately Apple rejected the game as a game,they say its not game,it has a political statement.” They instead suggested that Rasheed reclassify his game as “news” or “reference”. This is a confusing but sadly not uncommon move from Apple.
