StarSoldier by Hudson


I bought this game on April 1st, and Hudsonsoft has pulled it

However, this is the first time, I can't even find it in my list of purchased. I see it on my receipt.

Does anyone know what happened to starsoldier?

Here's the app icon:


This is mysterious!!

The game is not in the purchased list.

This is the first time report I've ever seen where it's not..

I'm not sure why Hudsonsoft removed the game, but Apple also removed any traces of it on their system.

Apps disappear without warning all the time. I think the publisher/developer pays Apple to list the app for a year or so and if they choose not to renew then it disappears.

This is why you always keep backups.
