A controversial game called ‘Underworld’, developed by a-steroids, has just been launched for the Apple iPhone.

The game enables players to deal drugs from real-world locations using the GPS in their mobile phones.

Gamers connect and track each other's movements as they trade drugs such as cannabis, cocaine and ecstasy with real people online, effectively becoming drug dealers in a fictional criminal underworld, which exists parallel to their everyday life.

A spokesperson for the game developers said, "The idea is simple. Moving between real-world locations, you trade various drugs: buy low and sell high."
