TOKYO -- Japanese app developer Line has suspended service for smartphone games that can be played within its messaging app, in what appears to be a conflict with Apple over rules governing its digital distribution platform.
Line has stopped service for eight "Quick Game" titles last Thursday on Apple's iOS and Android, since it uses the same system for both platforms. These so-called browser games can be played in Line without downloading a separate app. After launching in September, these games already boast more than 3 million users with offerings from developers like Gree and Bandai.
