Anyone know why the combo version of this game(smartphone+arcade was pulled from the store? Was lucky to redownload it from my purchase history but on the store itself I can now only find the separate versions.

The combo (smartphone+arcade) game is still up, since that was the HD version that had the multiple versions. (edit: whoops nevermind, i didn't realize they split the original version as well). However, they seem to have removed the original non-universal game. Only the 3 HD versions are still there (and also lites). It seems the non-universal lite was left up for some reason. If this is something they are doing, I would recommend anyone who bought the original DDPR download it now, since it would be logical that it would disappear as well since there is a universal HD version of that as well.

Anyone who already bought still have access to it on the purchase history, I can see it normally there, just not in the regular app store, so I bet you don't need worry about redownloading it.

That may be true now but I've had apps that disappeared from the store and also no longer are in my download history either. Star Wars: Trench Run is one (not necessarily the greatest game but enjoyed it for nostalgia). Yes if you have it backed up in your PC, you're okay. But if you don't, you're screwed. Just hate when apps are pulled. Sure it costs devs to keep them up though.

What is weird is that the lite version is still there, so might be some kind of error or problem... Maybe asking Cave in twitter will do. I'll try.

Here guys, the official answer:


@ednanf Yes, we have temporarily taken it down from the App Store due to a major bug, but it should be back up on within the next few days!

No worries =)

Interesting. I redownloaded it from my purchase history and it seems fine. Wonder what the major bug is?

Probably some major but rare bug, better safe than sorry.

Nothing changed much, though maybe the menus are now ipad retina.
