Originally released on Mac and PC in August last year, the award-winning border inspector and dystopian document thriller game Papers, Please has finally arrived on iOS.
In Papers, Please, you take on the role of an immigration officer who must control the flow of prospective immigrants and visitors entering the fictional dystopian country of Arstotzka. As noted by developer 3909, “Using only the documents provided by travelers and the Ministry of Admission’s primitive inspect, search, and fingerprint systems you must decide who can enter Arstotzka and who will be turned away or arrested.”
Intriguing, right? Take a sneak peek into Papers, Please through the trailer below:

Papers, Please for iOS includes the full content of the original game, with all 31 days and 20 endings. In addition, with its entry to the mobile platform, it has been enhanced with unlockable multitouch support for faster paperwork, an enhanced inspection mode, midday resume, Game Center integration for achievements and leaderboards, and other features.
Note that the game deals with mature themes and includes brief instances of pixelated violence. In fact, it has been modified to censor its full-body scanner feature at the request of Apple’s App Store review team, which apparently found that part to be pornographic.
