In Apple’s typical response of grabbing the chainsaw and going to work instead of a scalpel – they have removed all Civil War games from the iOS store. Games like Ultimate General: Gettysburg and all the Hunted Cow Civil War games are nowhere to be found. Hunted Cow has been the victim of this type of behavior from Apple before when Tank Battle 1942 was pulled for depicting Germans and Russians as enemies.

Whether you agree or disagree on the flag being flown over public places like a State Capitol or not, removing it entirely from historical contexts seems like the wrong way to go about it.

If this seems like something that could only happen in 2015, don’t forget about the game Wolfenstein in 2009. Since it’s illegal to display swastikas in Germany in ANY context, all the swastikas had to be replaced with the Wolfenstein logo, and many many things in the game were changed to avoid any kind of correlation between the enemies and the Nazi German party.
