Smuggle Truck Gets Raided at Border
The mysterious entity that is the Apple review board for applications rejected the app Smuggle Truck nearly three weeks ago. The game, developed by Owlchemy Labs, is a slightly more controversial version of their Apple friendly game Snuggle Truck available for iOS devices.
In Smuggle Truck the objective is to navigate a truck filled with illegal immigrants through a series of obstacles. Immigrants can be hurled out of the truck and die if you suck. In Snuggle Truck, which was born after the first app was rejected, the objective is to take stuffed animals to the zoo where they'll be taken care of.
High-Five for good taste.
Owlchemy Labs intends to release Smuggle Truck on their own for Macs and PCs. In a statement on their website the developers defended their original immigrant laden title:
Smuggle Truck was inspired by the frustration our friends have experienced in trying to immigrate to the United States. With such a troublesome issue being largely avoided in popular media, especially video games, we felt the best way to criticize it was with an interactive satire.

Hahahaha, sounds like fun!!! The video demo on YouTube says it would be released for iDevices last month..... Shows you how long apple has kept it from the AppStore.
Now we just need a game that's about stopping terrorist missions and a fun little game about torturing Bin Laden for the rest of his pathetic life!!!!

Poor poor illegals.... god forbid we have fun at their expense. Of course that could all be solved if they didn't try and enter this country illegally, but why hurt their feelings as they're breaking our laws. I would of bought smuggle truck but snuggle truck? No thanks.
Their "reason" for the game is funnier than the concept of the game IMHO. How about instead of making a game to bring their "struggle" to the attention of all, they just tell them to stay in their own country until they can come here legally like millions before them have done. Just an idea.

All this immigrant bashing is pretty sickening. Are you all married to your sisters too? As long as we keep blaming the illegals for our economic woes, we won't be laying blame where it belongs...on the greedy rich and multinational corporations.

I always find it somewhat funny and hippocratic whenever someone talks smack about illegal immigration, because everyone who is "American" is actually a decedent of someone who immigrated with no legal agreement with the native Americans so they were considered illegal too.

Before you suggest that the problem is strictly economics try taking a look at the percentage of illegal aliens in our state and federal prisons for violent crimes. A friend of mine who lived on the border and provided water for crossers was mudered by a drug smuggler.

This is just retarded comments why would you talk smack about immigrants and also try to say that economy or politics are bad because of illegal people, makes no sense. What about politicians try to f&@k this country with wars wasting billions of dollars and we have to pay for this bs ... Wait how? What about taxes or expenses like gas ($5.00 a gallon) or what about jobs opportunities to a lot of people that is unemployed or got laid off , yea let's just blame this on the immigrants . Not the people that runs this country , or any other country in the same situation or worst . !! People before you try to comment think about on what you write before writing trash
Thank you .

I also laugh inside when I hear people talking about making immigrants go back to their own country.
If it wasn't for immigrants, none of you would be here. What is american? European, African, Chinese, Mexican, Spanish, Italian, Japanese? The list goes on.
In 300 years everyone will look the same LoL.
