(NYPost) A twisted video game featured on Apple and Android devices urged players to gun down journalists to make headlines before the level was yanked by developers.

“Sniper 3D Assassin,” which is available on iPads and smartphones, had a mission dubbed “Breaking News” in which a reporter was targeted alongside ruthless murderers and thieves, according to The Washington Post.

“A journalist bribed a cop and will pick up a briefcase from the cop,” the game told players armed with virtual sniper rifles. “The briefcase is full of sensitive documents. Make him famous in a different way.”
