    Since Apple has delayed "Bailout Bonanza" probably due to it's political humor, and instead has approved titles like iSperm, iFart, and "Barf Puke-a-Thon" ... I figured I could adapt our game to a more scatological theme and produce "Bathroom Bonanza."

    I could use toilets instead of baskets, but what should be dropped from the top of the building (to replace the bags of cash)?

    I figured you all would have some ideas.






    (just kidding)

    It's a shame that Bailout Bonanza yet these other types of games seem to breeze through the reviews process.

    In terms of ideas for what can go into toilet, how about the following:

    Money (as in the down the drain)
    Rolls of toilet paper
    Little pygmies or trolls
    Mud pies (visually this can mean many things)

    Any of these things jokingly or not will probably get through approval process faster. You could even add a fart sound effect when you score.

    I got the impression the dev is kidding since it says "just kidding". Although, he could also mean that he was just kidding that we could actually come up with any ideas. :rolleyes:

    I'm sad to hear the game was delayed. It was a funny idea (I saw the YouTube video).

    Are you sure it's delayed? It has taken my games well over a week to get submitted (others, many weeks).

    I hope Apple does not kill me for saying this, but if it does get rejected, my tip is to resubmit with a slightly different name and barely any description. If you put the controversial stuff in the description, they're more likely to be bothered with it.

    You can change back the description after acceptance.

    We got the dreaded "review delayed" letter about a month ago. Game has been in review for other a month. We did change the description etc...

    There's really NOTHING objectionable here. Certainly less satire than Pay2Play, the Blagovich simulator.

    perhaps you can change the game to the menace banker keep
    shitting down the building and you have to collect the shit with pails

    and eventually napped him from creating a big whirlpool of shit that dirties the environment.

    Good if the banker will show his ass once a while and while he does that, you can throw a handcuffs and if it hits him, he will be captured!

    What was it about Bailout Bonanza that wasn't regarded as "proper"?

    I mean...wasn't there a game a while back that took inspiration from the old Tiger LCD games that had bankers and investors jumping from rooftops after losing all their money (ala what happened during the Great Depression)?

    Surely assisted suicide is more unbecoming than whatever you had in your game....

    I DON'T HAVE A CLUE!

    We were told to pull out any mention of the charity and we did. Other than that, nothing ... nada ... zilch.

    Is this game (Bailout Bonanza) in any sense offensive? I think not.
