For those of you waiting on a mobile version of Edmund McMillen’s The Binding of Isaac. Well you might be waiting for a long while as Apple has rejected game for sale on the iTunes store due to depictions of violence towards children.

According to the notice, Apple does not allow depictions of violence or abuse towards children, which could be use to describe Isaac’s relationship with his mother. However, I’d like to call bulls**t on this, as there has been plenty of games accepted to the iTunes store that includes violence toward children including Telltale’s The Walking Dead Series which zombies will actively attack characters like Clementine, and Limbo which depicts a young child searching through limbo to find his sister while avoiding deadly traps and giant spiders.
This isn’t the first time the team behind the ports of the game have seen problems with bringing the game to other consoles, as Nintendo had similar issues with the game when submitted for the Wii U and 3DS. Nintendo was eventually swayed into allowing the dungeon crawler on their consoles.
