The Dope Wars
App Maker: Catamount Software
Reason: Objectionable content
This gaming app is a remake of the 1980s game DrugWars (for DOS and Ti calculators). ”Dope Wars,” according to its creators, allows users to play a drug dealer who has to make as much money as possible in 30 days by peddling narcotics.

App Maker: Sikalosoft
Reason for Rejection: “Deeply offensive”
