Hi! I am so confused. I bought these both a while ago and tried to download them again today but they are missing from the USA App Store. Is this allowed? I would appreciate any insight into this.

please ignore this. found the answer.

"We removed Amateur Surgeon 1 on iPad and iPhone and Amateur Surgeon Christmas for a few reasons. They didn't perform well on newer devices and we didn't want people searching for the new Amateur Surgeon game ( https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/amateur-surgeon-3/id601538051?mt=8 ) only to get the older versions and potentially have a bad experience playing them.

If you've downloaded it before I believe you can still get it off the cloud. But it's not available to new users.

My hope is that eventually we'll do a remake of Amateur Surgeon 1 and Christmas and fix up the performance issues and really make them shine but that's not on the table currently."
