Unpleasant Horse, the debut game of PopCap's edgy spin-off label 4th & Battery, has now launched on the App Store. The free game lets you leap from cloud to cloud as a mean little pegasus, and jumping on the backs of other, nicer pegusi (pegasuses?) will drag them down to bloody spikes before you leap to safety. Adorable.
The game was originally rejected by Apple for undisclosed reasons. The developers assumed it was due to the fairly gruesome violence hidden behind the layer of saccharine sweetness. "We thought horses dying in meat grinders were wholesome family entertainment!" the team joked.
