For almost three years, my games have done incredibly well in China, probably because they don't allow the big companies to publish anything without a license. However, after getting thousands of ratings and a few hundred thousand downloads, it went on the leaderboards...
It's supposed to be good news, but this was a case where that wasn't exactly how it turned out. Earlier this week I received a message from Apple that read plain and simple: Retro Combat was taken down at the request of the Chinese government. The article they cited is here, a Chinese webpage titled "Notice of the General Office of the State Administration of Press, Publication, Radio, Film and Television on the Administration of Mobile Games Publication Services 2016". Apparently article 15 of that document treats any games with online features that don't have government-issued ID's as "illegal contraband", so my game suddenly became just that. There goes half my users.
