Cecil's Revenge -- Apple Flip-Flops ... App Gets the Greenlight

EXCLUSIVE

Cecil the Lion will get his revenge after all!!!

Apple has reversed itself and "Cecil's Revenge" will now be featured in the App Store. The company rejected the game -- in which Cecil and his animal buddies kill hunters in space -- because it violated Apple policies by targeting a real-life group. 

The game's creators tell us Apple didn't offer an explanation for its change of heart, but it happened after TMZ ran the rejection story

The app had been advertised on Google free of charge, but now it's priced at $0.99 -- with all proceeds going to stop illegal poaching.
