Dealer420 screenshot Maemo N900JOHANNESBURG, South Africa – Nokia has banned Dealer 420 game from entering the Ovi Store, claiming that it violates content guidelines and promotes illegal activities.

Dealer 420 is a classic, addictive game based on other popular drug dealing games, compatible with Symbian and Maemo smartphones as it is developed in Qt.

As it was banned from the Nokia Ovi Store, it is now selling at TugaLogix – readers can follow this link to get it.

Although TugaLogix did appeal quite a few times to the Nokia Ovi Store staff, even comparing actual violent games at the same app store, the response was always the same – a very diplomatic rejection. The company in reply published a humorous┬ávideo, below:

The game is currently available for the Nokia N900, N8, C7, Astound, X7, C6-01, Oro, and E7. Readers can, once again, follow this link to download, play it and attempt to beat their own high scores.

Two more parody videos have also been released (below) in which characters describe the game and complain about its rejection.
