That was Disney. They asked some companies to remove their Marvel games, mainly Activision and Capcom.

Just had a look on my itunes, i was missing lots of my old games. I've got them backed up though so i simply went to that folder with all my ipa's, then selected them all and dragged them over to Apps on itunes, so what its doing now is filling it up with all the icons of my games. That way i can then install these ipas via itunes if i need to

If i then connect my iphone i can then search for an app and install it directly. Think before i must have backed my ipa files into different folders and itunes was only picking up the apps from the one it was linked to (not backup folders etc).

Worth doing a search on your computer for 'lumo' as it may be backed up elsewhere if its not showing in itunes

How long should a game be supported?
As long as the Dev wants to support it.

We have no right to demand a game be updated and supported at all. We do have the right to choose which devs we support with our dollars, though.

You still have Tetris on NeS. Why can't Apple do that?

Simple answer. The difference between physical media and digital.

If I own a physical game it is mine, forever. If I download the game, technically I'm just buying the rights to play it while it's available.

Default Restoring games/apps that are no longer listed on itunes?

I'll probably be trading in my iPad 2 for an iPad Air very soon. My only concern is that some of the apps that I have on my iPad 2 no longer appear in the itunes search results, so I assume they have been removed. However, I do have them backed up in my itunes media folder on my hard drive.

I'd hate to lose them. What is the process for getting these apps onto my new iPad once I get it?

If You use same iTunes account when you buy The New iPad then it's not a problem,if you go with you're New iPad on purchased tab And search "not on This device"then all app that you previously purchased but not anymore in itunes,you can redownloaded from here,using ICLOUD icon,i always do in This way..

How do you back up your games again? I have to back up my Minecraft game because Microsoft just bought Minecraft from Mojang and am worried about not having it as it is anymore. Cry. I can't really deal with this!!!! Sob.

If for some reason any things gone from the purchase history, once iTunes is open on of you should be able to click on your device, then apps and it'll show a list of everything you've backed up to PC and you'll just press install. You'll have to use the same iTunes account as the original purchase though.
