Apple refuses approval after description jokes that free-to-play is 'nonsense'

App Store rejects game for in-app purchase remark

VVVVVV and Super Hexagon creator Terry Cavanagh has had his latest game rejected from the App Store after describing in-app purchases as "nonsense".

The iOS title, Don’t Look Back, had a message to users in its short description jokingly stating the game was completely free, and not free-to-play.

“Don’t Look Back is a short game I made in 2009,” read the description.

“This is a completely free game, not free-to-play”; there are no in-app purchased or any of that nonsense.”

A message from Apple then claimed the app was not in compliance with the App Store Review Guidelines, and advised Cavanagh that “it would be appropriate” to remove or revise the description.

After making the required amendments, the game has since been approved and is available for download on the App Store.
