My list of currently installed 32-bit games on my iPhone 6+ is 166 long! Don't think anyone wants me to post all of them, lol. Hopefully I can move them back to an old iPhone 4s to keep them working....

The ones that stand out right away that I'll be missing include:
Anomaly Defenders
Anomaly HD
Anomaly Korea
Asteroids: Gunner
Autumn Dynasty - RTS
Autumn Dynasty Warlords
Block Fortress: War
GeoDefense
GeoDefense Swarm
Heroes and Castles
Infinite Warriors
Meteor Blitz
Midway Arcade
Space Invaders InfinityGene
Starbase Command
Starborn Anarkist
Starfront Collision

And it really makes me sad looking over the complete list and seeing all the cool retro 80's arcade games that will break.... sigh.

My screen name is misunderstood. I am not some arrogant person who thinks he's so cool. Cool, because I like cold weather and Pepper because I'm hot.

I am looking at losing almost 300 games. And these are all premium as I don't do f2p. I'm not updating and I'm not ever buying another iPad again.

It has been confirmed that Autumn Dynasty and Beat Sneak Bandit will be updated.

It makes me a bit sad to see that a load of games will die - but I know it's not practical to keep all versions of iOS backwards compatible right to the beginning forever. If there was ever a chance that I'd run out of games to play, then this would bother me more.
