Foundation of Computer Games in Iran Protests against Rovio Entertainment

Foundation of Computer Games in Iran announced that they have sent a formal letter to Finnish entertainment company, Rovio, to protest against anti-Iran levels in “Fry Me To The Moon”, extension levels for Angry Birds Space.

In level 9 of this package, players must target a planet look like Iran’s map. And in level 10 the objects include a building like Tehran’s Milad tower. The foundation says these levels inspire anti-Iran sentiments to players and this governmental organization believes the  game is a part of United States cyber war against Iran. Foundation of Computer Games asked for formal explanation from the designer and producers of Angry Birds Space.

Battlefield 3 (BF3) was the last most successful anti-Iran game developed by EA Digital Illusions CE and published by Electronic Arts. Iranian officials banned Battlefield 3 in Iran over its scenarios taking place in Tehran. Computer stores are prohibited from selling this game.
