A game for the iPhone that allows the player to enact a fight with a broken bottle has inflamed the ire of parents who consider it to be a dangerous, frightening experience for children.
Broken Bottle 2 lets players pick from a number of different types of glass container, smash the virtual bottle and then slash and stab their way through enemies.
With blood and relatively realistic violence on-screen, it is fairly obvious that the Broken Bottle 2 app is not intended for a young, impressionable audience, although this has not stopped its presence on the App Store being questioned by parents.
"It's totally sick. I spotted it after my seven-year-old daughter downloaded Connect 4," said father Andrew Lancaster in an interview with The Sun.
The Broken Bottle 2 game is supported by in-app advertising and although sceptics may point out that no child should really be in possession of an expensive smartphone for an extended period, this is just one in a long line of apps against to objections have been made.
