“Apple’s removal of Fortnite is yet another example of Apple flexing its enormous power in order to impose unreasonable restraints and unlawfully maintain its 100 percent monopoly over the iOS In-App Payment Processing Market,” the filing reads.
Apple spokesperson Fred Sainz said the company removed Fortnite from the store after Epic violated its guidelines.
“Epic enabled a feature in its app which was not reviewed or approved by Apple, and they did so with the express intent of violating the App Store guidelines regarding in-app payments that apply to every developer who sells digital goods or services,” he said in an emailed statement.
Google had removed Fortnite from its Play Store as of late Thursday. Android users can still download Fortnite directly from Epic’s website.
Update: Epic is also suing Google. Continue here to read the full story.

Kill It With Fire is a first-person action game about hunting spiders and causing collateral damage. Assemble your arsenal of increasingly excessive weapons, track spiders across suburbia, and burn everything in your path!
To defeat spiders you must exploit their one weakness: FIRE. Or bullets. Or explosions, throwing stars, gettin’ smushed by stuff...pretty much anything, really. But that doesn’t mean it’ll be easy - first you’ve gotta find the spiders. Use state-of-the-art arachnid tracking technology to pinpoint your target's location among hundreds of potential hiding spots - then, torch everything and smash the spider with a frying pan after it runs out. It’s the only way to be sure.
In this roguelite RPG shooter players must eat enemies, bullets and more to powerup their character, weapons, and abilities. Gun down zombies, robots and giant mutant bosses with a barrage of bullets before chowing down on their corpses to craft new weapons, unlock new abilities and special attacks, and transform into a powerful Zombro form to smash foes. Explore four character classes and a skill tree based on specific diets – and remember, you are what you eat!Continue here to read the full story.
In the future players can enjoy a new Synthwave Mode that allows the game to be played in synthwave colors while listening to music from amazing artists, including Waveshaper, Night Runner, Retröxx and Magic Sword.
“In Bite the Bullet how much and what you eat controls everything from your waistline to branching skill trees and weapon crafting," says Nick Mann, Game Designer at Mega Cat Studios. "Shoot fast, eat big, and workout your abdominal muscles to satisfy your appetite for destruction."

A nostalgic feel of the 80’s and 90’s
Dog Duty was inspired by classic games and TV series such as Commandos and G.I. Joe. Created based on the nostalgic memories from developer Zanardi & Liza, classic villains such as Mojo Jojo from The Powerpuff Girls and Dr. Eggman from Sonic the Hedgehog played a big part in the development of the evil octopus army. It’s the way these villains think of themselves as the greatest beings alive. The same characteristics apply to the octo-bosses that players have to fight against in Dog Duty. The octopuses lend themselves well to powerful and unique creatures that bring a healthy dose of humor and chaos, much like the villains from classic 80s and 90’s series. The retro graphics, upbeat music and fast-paced Real Time Tactics style of the game provide a unique old school feel that appeal to young and old.
