Controversial game Phone Story pulled from the App Store

Phone Story
Earlier today there were reports of a newly released iOS game that went live on the Apple App Store for only a few hours before it was pulled offline. The game, called Phone Story, tells the story of the iPhone – from how it was made, all the way until it the end of its lifecycle where it gets disposed. Each part of the story is told through a collection of mini games (one for each stage) that users have to complete in order to move on.

The game is accompanied by a narrator telling the significance of each level and which stage of the process users are at. Needless to say, it featured questionable content that consisted of greatly exaggerated truths – but truths nevertheless. Seeing how the app paints Apple in a bad light, it’s no surprise that it was pulled from the App Store – but it makes you wonder how or why Apple even approved it in the first place.

There’s no telling if the app will ever be back on the App Store again (most likely it’s going to end up on Android or jailbroken iOS devices) but for those of you who managed to snag a copy – keep it. You’re now the owner of a rare collector edition piece. If you’re keen on checking out what the game looks like, Kotaku has got some video footage of the game sent in by a tipster.
