MOBILE-phone-based games could be subject to classification checks under a re-elected Labor Government.
Games available for download from Apple's iTunes, for example, do not contain ratings from the Federal Government's Classification Board, despite the board declaring on its website that all games must be classified.
But because the Classification (Publications, Films and Computer Games) Act 1995 does not provide specific guidelines for games available on mobile phones, app distributors are able to get away without classifying them and also avoid paying classification fees of between $470 and $2040.
