'Boyfriend Trainer' iPhone App Turns Domestic Abuse Into Disturbing Game [View all]

A controversial new app called "Boyfriend Trainer" lets users simulate domestic abuse on a virtual man.

Developed by Games2win, the application is available for download in Apple's iTunes App Store. The following description is posted on the app's iTunes page:

Crack that whip and teach your guy a thing or two about being the Perfect Boyfriend! When scolding doesn’t work, just zap him, whack him and train him to be your ideal man!

Game play features an animated "girlfriend" character, which the user controls and uses to "train" the "boyfriend" character. The player advances through the game by physically abusing the boyfriend.
