Saudi bans an iPhone game citing game's voice "too sexy"

Conservative Gulf kingdom Saudi Arabia has banned an iPhone video game because its female character sounded too sexy, according to the games developer. The kingdom has banned the game Shoe Wars after claiming that the sexy screams and sexual voice of jumping girl in the game will erode its cultural values, causes religious offense, and threaten the Saudi Arabian social stability.

The free iPhone app features a woman carrying a shopping bag jumping from platform to platform in a never-ending quest to collect as many pairs of expensive designer shoes as possible, while avoiding men by jumping over them. When the female character leaps she makes exertion noises that could, if one twists their mind a bit, be construed as sexual.

A statement posted on the developers website shoewarsapp.com said, We can confirm that the game has been withdrawn from sale in Saudi Arabia. This decision was made following Saudi feedback that the female characters jumping sound effect was considered too sexual and may lead Saudi men to moral astray. A modified version of the app will be available in Saudi Arabia in April without this objectionable content, it added.

Shoe Wars is available to Apple iPhone users through the companys online AppStore. The offending voice can be heard in the video below:
