Iran blocks Clash of Clans game with “too violent” remarks
BBC – Iran has put limits on who can play the popular Clash of Clans mobile game.
A government committee called for restrictions citing a report from psychologists, who said it encouraged violence and tribal conflict.
The app could also negatively affect family life if teenagers got addicted to the game, warned the committee that polices cyberspace.
Statistics gathered earlier this year suggested that about 64% of mobile gamers in Iran played the game.
The decision to limit access to Clash of Clans across Iran was taken on 27 December.
