UbiSoft has billions of dollars and an army of programmers... And can't run a "retro" game on a "retro" iDevice.
Support has been contacted many times since march 2012: still no answer, still no fix.

Please stop spamming the forum with pointless thread necromancy demanding support for ludicrously outdated devices.

Demanding multiple developers waste time and money trying to "fix" games to please a tiny and rapidly-vanishing userbase who still own the iDevice equivalent of toasters and waffle irons is far less reasonable than you simply upgrading to a machine that isn't powered by steam.

You buy a "WindowsXP compatible" game. It doesn't work at all with your WindowsXP PC. What will you do ?

a) You will shout "people with WindowsXP are stupid idiots" and "why don't they upgrade their old crappy PC with Windows8 ?" and "why don't they buy a brand new highend PC ?".

Or

b) You tell "why the programmers didn't test their app before selling it ?" and "why they sell it as compatible if it's not ?" and "why won't they fix it ?" and "I must warn other people to not buy it".

In your case, you stop trying to use Windows XP on a 486.

Then you didn't understand.

Previous version of POPR worked fine on iPhone1/iOS313. Latest update is bad: code is bad. Programmers made a mistake.
The game ran fine with the iDevice before. Understand ? Problem is not the iDevice. Problem is the programmers. Don't blame the iDevice. Changing the iDevice become some apps has bugs is stupid and expensive. The iDevice is fine, the apps are bad.

The app is sold as compatible. It must be compatible. The code has bugs and crashes. Problem is not the iDevice. Problem is the code.

If the programmers want to sell an "iOS6 only" app, they can, it's their right. It they sell an "iOS313 compatible" app, it must be compatible. Easy.


PS: there are more and more apps sold as "compatible with iPhone3G with iOS4" that crash on iPhone3G. There are more and more apps sold as "compatible with 3GS" that crash on 3GS. There are more and more apps sold as "compatible with iPodTouch4" that crash on iPodTouch4. Etc... Problem is the programmers, and Apple useless validation.

It's been a week since it was available and free. Yes, it's pulled and likely to be for a long, long time.

PoP Retro and PoP Classic aren't exactly the same. Retro is meant to be a port of the original game with the original graphics and game play where as Classic (which was on XBL Arcade) is an update on the original. It looks like Retro has been pulled from the US store, but Classic is still available.

Jerks put it back on the appstore to give away, then pulled it again. Dammit, I JUST deleted it from my phone to make room.
