There's a space game called Buzz Aldrin's Space Program Manager. Aside from endorsing the game, the space pioneer himself has actually helped out on development as a consultant. You'd think that would be good enough for Apple to approve the game, but hahaha, no.

Pocket Tactics reports that the game has had its submission to the App Store blocked on the grounds it "contains well-known third parties". Pretty sure Buzz is aware of this, since he was a consultant on the project.

To some extent, I sympathise with Apple's plight. They're drowning in games to check, most of which must be absolute garbage. But this, this is a bad look.

Here's what the game looks like in action. It's a spiritual successor to Buzz Aldrin's Race into Space, an old PC game (something publishers Slitherine are pretty good at).
