Yeah...this has been on my wish list since forever. I like the basic gameplay and wish they would repackage this as an offline game without all the extra junk.

Apple should flag apps and games that require Internet access to a hosted service to work so that buyers are informed that they are purchasing with risk.

I agree with you guys, they should have updated it to make it playable but alas that costs money and they obviously are in it for the money. There's no need for them as a company to help you out since they already took your money.

The reason most single player games are made online in the first place is to make sure you can't cheat (so you need to spend money). There are some cases where games are online only to preserve some scoreboard checking but that's mainly for multiplayer. For single player it's pretty much to protect investments.

It's unfortunate such a cool game will disappear from the Appstore and no one will ever be able to play it anymore.
