Prohibition 1: Bootlegger iPhone, thumbnail 1
Okay, we might be sensationalising a little in the title, but we’ve been following the saga of drug related games getting booted from the App Store due to Apple’s strict submissions policy, but this follow up to Prohibition 3: Candy Wars has just been accepted and launched.

Now, the content is essentially the same - the game follows your exploits in dealing an illegal, recreational substance to the public without getting killed or thrown in jail. Or both. The only difference is that Prohibition 1: Bootlegger is set during the 1920s prohibition era, and it’s booze you’re peddling rather than dope.

Oh well. To paraphrase Ally McBeal: “We’re Apple. We have double standards to live up to.”

Back to the game. This content, to be fair to the developer, isn’t actually the same as Prohibition 3: Candy Wars. This game is far more substantial, as you’re sent to the east coast by Al Capone himself to set up a speakeasy, and you’ve got to last a whole year without getting shut down.

"I enjoyed researching the history around alcohol prohibition and bringing some of it to the game - the art deco graphics, the mobsters you have to fight, and alcohol price fluctuations based on cities,” says Catamount Software founder Hardy Macia (whose name, by the way, would make for an excellent bootlegger character).

Along the way you’ll take on the likes of seasoned bootleggers and moonshiners like Gustins Gang, 'Lucky' Luciano, Maxie 'Boo-Hoo' Hoff, Carlo Matranga, and might even find an opportunity to take out Capone.

So why don’t you’s squeeze the ‘Buy It!’ button and slide on over to the App Store joint to scope it out, sweetheart.
