ass-hunter-1.jpgA game where players hunt and kill naked gay men for sport has been yanked from Google Play after multiple complaints.

The game, called "Ass Hunter," has apparently been playable online for several years, but was uploaded to Google's Android app store earlier this month. Its description read:

Popular game hunting on gays is now on android! Play and do not be gay! Legendary game, where you are hunter and your mission is to kill gays as much as you can or escape between them to the next level. Gays may be hidden in bushes and unexpectedly catch you. Remember! When they catch you they will do with you whatever they want ;)

More, after the break.

In the game, the player is a camouflage-wearing hunter who walks through the brush stalking naked gay men. The goal is to shoot as many of them as possible. When they're shot, their heads explode and their naked bodies sprawl out on the ground.

"Ass Hunter" received a boatload of negative reviews and comments on Google Play. The Daily Mail reports:

A score of disgusted internet users commented on the game's content in the review section before it was taken off the website. 'This developer is despicable. I cannot comprehend how someone could create a "game" so wilfully ignorant, hateful, vile and violence,' one user said. 'Do you realize that young gay men and women are attacked all the time, and your game could be the incentive for someone to act on their ignorance?

'Normalizing violence is never okay. By creating and publishing this 'game,' you're sending the message that you condone such violence.

'Shame. Shame on you. I will not rest until your developer account is deleted and you are laughed into obscurity.'

Others described the game as 'sickening'.

Despite the criticism, the game was downloaded more than 10,000 times before it was pulled by Google. The company did not give a reason for the removal, saying that it doesn't comment on individual apps.

"Ass Hunter" can still be found online.
