Unpleasant Horse is an iOS sidescroller platformer video game developed by 4th and Battery,[2] a subsidiary of PopCap Games.[3] The protagonist of the game is a black "horse" (though technically a pegasus), which the user must direct across the level by having the horse bounce on clouds, and on the backs of white horses. This causes the white horses to fall onto meat grinders at the bottom of the level; if the user misdirects the black horse when trying to hit a cloud or a white horse, then the black horse itself falls onto the meat grinders.[2]

The game is completed, and was believed to be rejected from the App Store for "mature content" on April 7, 2011 due to a miscommunication.[4] In reality, it was still undergoing review.[5] As of April 26, 2016, Unpleasant Horse is not yet available on the iOS App Store.
