Forget Candy Crush or Angry Birds. The most popular iPhone game is one where you assume the role of a virtual drug dealer.
The now-banned Weed Firm allowed players to grow different strains of marijuana, sell it to a variety of colourful characters, and accumulate large amounts of drug money.
The game held the top spot in the U.S. App Store chart until it was removed yesterday. Apple has given no explanation as to why they pulled Weed Firm, although Manitoba, the game’s developer, assumes it’s because it was ‘just too good.’
In a statement on their website, the company claim the removal ‘was entirely Apple’s decision, not ours.’
Manitoba might bring Weed Firm back to the App Store, but it may have to censor the original version before it can grace iPhones again.
For now, people will have to confine their drug-dealing to the real world.
