32-Bit Games that will be obsolete with iOS 11

Hello all,

While I haven't been on this forum for quite a while now, mainly because I've lost interest in the newer F2P iOS games, I've been a long time iOS gamer. With the iOS 11 news that I'm sure you all know about now, here's a list of games that'll be obsolete with iOS 11 unless updated. We need to nag on developers to update their games or else we'll have hundreds and hundreds of games that cannot be played forever.

Here it is: (If there is DEAD next to it that means the game or developer has been removed from the App Store)

- TouchArcade App
- App Shopper (DEAD)
- Flappy Bird (DEAD)
- Dead Space (DEAD)
- Mass Effect Infiltrator (DEAD)
- Command & Conquer Red Alert (DEAD)
- Star Wars Journeys (DEAD)

- Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 (DEAD)
- Secret of Monkey Island (DEAD)
- Secret of Monkey Island 2 (DEAD)
- Soccer Physics (DEAD)
- iDOS (DEAD)
- Swords & Shadow (DEAD)
- Mad Out
- Soccer Rally
- Soccer Rally 2
- Table Top Racing
- Resident Evil 4
- Colin McRae Rally
- Bumpy Road
- Death Rally
- 8-Bit Rally
- Slingshot Racing
- Z
- Nimble Quest
- Punch Quest
- Marble Mixer
- Achtung
- eBoy FixPix
- Blueprint 3D
- Super Crate Box
- Roar Rampage
- Ridiculous Fishing
- PinWar
- Mini Mix Mayhem
- Draw Race 2
- Canabalt
- Dead Effect
- Prince of Persia: The Shadow and the Flame
- Duke Nukem Manhattan Project
- Type:Rider
- Lunar Racer
- Punch Quest
- R-Type
- Aemula Oldies
- Neon Shadow
- Beat Hazard Ultra
- Astronaut Spacewalk
- South Park Pinball
- Beben III (Quake 3)

Of course these are just my games, so please feel free to add your games and help us all create a list for the games that will die off completely with iOS 11 and the games that we need to contact the developers for an update!

Thank you all.

For me the ones that really hurt seeing going away are

Peggle Classic
Dead Space
Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3
Soul Calibur

and of course

App Shopper

Looks like I'll be getting a spare iPad just for my oldies.

Annoyingly I bought Kahuna a couple of days ago only to find it is 32 bit. I was tempted to get a refund, but it's only 69p. Good game too.

According to Rocketcat Games' official Twitter, they are submitting an update for Punch Quest soon and will update Mage Gauntlet soon.
EDIT: Cold Beam Games is planning to update Beat Hazard Ultra according to their Twitter.

I think it is our best bet to start emailing/tweeting these developers to see if they are planning any updates.

Also, I don't know if it'll be the case with any other Capcom games but I remember they updated Devil May Cry and Mega Man X in December out of nowhere so there's still hope for Monster Hunter Dynamic Hunting and Resident Evil 4

Vlambeer is updating their games.
Dungeon Raid needs to be saved.
Some games I won't risk losing are games that have jumped like 4 generations of phones with me.
