New iPad Games and Apps of the Week: G.I. Joe Strike and more

G.I. Joe Strike

Last week Apple removed all apps in the App Store that featured the Confederate flag, including historically accurate strategy games. This did not sit well with a lot of people who thought Apple was taking the recent Confederate flag controversy too far. According to CNN Money, Apple has reinstated some of the games soon after banning them. Andrew Mulholland of HexWar Games said Apple put Civil War: 1863 back on sale without needing any changes, but the game studio had to tweak other titles, such as Civil War: Gettysburg, to have them reinstated. Apple is not allowing games to feature the Confederate flag on App Store icons or in screenshots, but the flag will be allowed during gameplay as long as it is not being used in an "offensive and mean-spirited way".

The banning of all apps that use the Confederate flag from the App Store has sparked a lively debate on mobile gaming websites and forums, such as Touch Arcade, who was first to notice Civil War strategy games were being yanked from the App Store.
