iPharaohs company released a game for iPhones and iPads, inspired by the Egyptian uprising in January/February 2011. The game titled Egyptian Revolution (25 Jan) was developed by Ahmed T. Nabarawy. It can be played in two modes: protesters or police. The game is available at iTunes.

EMAJ Magazine describes the game:

Players take the role of either Molotov Cocktail-throwing protesters or armed riot police in a digitized version of the confrontation that took place in Cairo’s Tahrir Square from late January to mid-February. Photos of the real-life upheaval punctuate the game, adding a historical sheen to the production.

Nabarawy faced a lengthy approval process from Apple to get the game out. While Egypt’s revolution lasted 18 days, it took even longer for him to persuade the US tech company he was a genuine independent developer and the game would not breach guidelines by offending anyone.
