Apple rejects iOS version of The Binding of Isaac

Cites the game's depictions of, "violence towards, or abuse of, children"

Apple has rejected the iOS version of Edmund McMillen's celebrated The Binding of Isaac, according to a tweet from its publisher, Nicalis.

The Binding of Isaac was co-developed by Super Meat Boy creator Edmund McMillen and Florian Himsl. It was first released for PC in November 2011, receiving good reviews at launch and surpassing 2 million units sold within 18 months.

The iOS version has taken a long time to arrive, but Apple has taken a stand against the game's content. In a tweet published yesterday, Nicalis founder Tyrone Rodriguez exclaimed, "C'mon wtf... Apple," alongside a screenshot of the rejection.

Apple's reasoning? "Your app contains content or features that depict violence towards, or abuse of, children, which is not allowed on the App [Store]."
