Apple has launched a new iOS game inspired by the paperboy days of investor Warren Buffet, reports CNN.

“Warren Buffett's Paper Wizard” is a paper-throwing game similar to the classic arcade game “Paper Boy.”

It comes out on the heels of a recent Berkshire Hathaway investor’s call where Apple founder Tim Cook made a surprise appearance with Berkshire founder, Warren Buffet. The cameo was part of a humorous short film where Buffet tries and fails to come up with a successful idea for an iPhone app before being bailed out by Cook with an idea that would later become “Paper Wizard.”

The app is copyrighted, maintained and operated by Apple. It marks the first game Apple has developed for its iPhone since it release “Texas Hold'em” in 2008.

Buffet’s collaboration with Apple marks the second time a brand has had fun with the investor by launching a new product. In 2008, Fathead released a Big Head cut out poster of Buffet in a similar fashion to the app.
