No word? No sign? No press conference from the Townsville mayor? This will not stand.

I've found this on my purchase list when I just went through it. I've replayed up to the first save point and didn't see any problems with this game. I don't know why this was pulled.

iPad Air with iOS 8.3

I just checked Radiangames.com

Here's what Luke wrote:
Goodbye Powerpuff Girls

Many of probably already know that PPG: Defenders of Townsville was removed from Steam, iOS, and Google. Not because there was a problem with the game, but because Cartoon Network is coming out with a new TV series, and they decided to reduce the visibility of PPG everywhere to reduce confusion (and increase hype?). I have no idea what art style the new series will be in. PPG: DoT had two different art styles, but it could be a third all-new style.

Im obviously not happy with this decision, but theres nothing I can really do about it. Ill probably make another Metroidvania-Shooter at some point in the future (with spaceships instead of superhero girls), but I dont know when that would be.

Thanks for the info. Pretty sad coz this sounds like a permanent pull. Im never deleting this as long as it plays on my current iOS versions. One of the best iOS games for me of alltime.

Wow! What a bummer. This is such a good game too. That's one thing that sucks about digital distribution. You buy it, but it's not really yours.

How very anti-hype this is. It's quite the opposite effect, isn't it? It's a bad thing!
