We just commented that Tim Cook attended the annual shareholders meeting of Berkshire Hathaway (one of Apple's largest shareholders), held last Saturday in Omaha (Nebraska, United States).
What we didn't comment on was that at the meeting, a "humorous short film" was screened featuring Cook in which Buffett visits an ultra-secret Apple lab to try to find ideas for an app / game, including a time machine where he finds himself and a clear message: "Buy Apple Stocks!" CNN.
Cook then suggests a "newspaper release" iPhone game because Buffett delivered a newspaper in his childhood (yes, he rode a bicycle and went out throwing newspapers at home) and, for years, held "news release contests." newspapers ”during shareholder meetings as reported by the Omaha World-Herald.
Believe me, this game is really real and is now available on the App Store!
Do you think you can launch a newspaper like the legendary Warren Buffett? Test your newspaper pitcher skills as you travel the streets of Omaha (Nebraska) to Cupertino (California). Avoid vehicles and birds while you deliver newspapers to nearby and distant buildings. Does anyone collect enough Warren Bucks to dethrone the Newspaper Wizard? Probably no.
The game features two distinct worlds (Omaha and Cupertino), multiple stages within each world that increase difficulty, unique obstacles at each stage that also increase difficulty, and haptic feedback to “make the game more real”.
While Wildlife Designs is listed as the game developer, the game's Q&A page makes it clear that Apple was the one to get it down:
How many people did it take to create Paper Wizard?
Warren Buffett was the mentor, and he had a little help from his friends from Apple.
That is, this is the second game created by Apple for iOS the first, if you forgot, was Texas Holdem, launched in mid-2008 and discontinued at the end of 2011.

For some reason, the game is unfortunately only now available on the American App Store.
