    I don't think it has anything to do with ads. Your game has stolen counter strike images starting from icon and other preview screens? this is a good way to get your developer account lifetime banned by Google.

    Yeah, sorry but it sounds and looks like you've done precisely what they removed you for. Be sure when making art, that it can not be confused with any major brands. If you do it on accident E.G. You make a character that looks vaguely like another character on a game no one has heard of, its not such a big deal, but your main screenshot is a direct mirror of Counter Strike's artwork, in addition to having STRIKE in your game's name. I'd suggest renaming, and redoing that artwork if you want any chance at all of getting on the google market, or any market for that matter.

    Your app was rejected for violating the ads policy. Your app's advertisements are inappropriate for the intended audience of your app.
    I am using only unity ads.
    Game age rating is 12 plus.
