According to Madfinger Games's Marek Rabas, his firm's third-person multiplayer shooter Shadowgun: DeadZone has been rejected by Apple's eagle-eyed App Store approval team.
Why? Well, we don't quite know, but its rejection is possibly related to one of the game's more explosive weapons, which is elegantly referred to as the "ShitStorm". Lovely.
A Madfinger spokesperson has told us that the developer is still crossing its fingers about a simultaneous launch of Shadowgun: DeadZone on Google Play and the App Store, mind.
"We still want to release it today on both Apple and Android," the Czech Republic-based company said.
The 'droid wins out
If you own an Android-powered phone or tablet, you'll definitely be able to get your mitts on Shadowgun: DeadZone today, incidentally. Of that, there is no doubt.
When this follow-up to the Pocket Gamer Silver Award-winning Shadowgun does hit both platforms, Android shooter fans will be able to battle alongside their iPhone-toting buddies thanks to cross-platform play.
