Is there a way to get games not on the App Store anymore?

Some games that I really liked are over my 5 years with an ios device are now gone. I bought an old ipad 1st gen and want to play these old games. Is there a way to get them anymore?

Or else go to iTunes and look in your purchased history. There you can find all the old games you had at one time or another and get 'em back for free! That is, unless they were pulled in which case you'll be outta luck then.

If you never purchased it in the past, then it will not be backlogged in your iCloud account. If you are jailbroken, install app sync through Cydia.

Make sure you properly backup your device as then you have all your old apps stored

See I remember a jail broke app had all apps even ones that weren't there anymore. But now since that is gone I have no clue what I'm doing.

If you had not paid for the iPad versions of those apps, what you seem to be asking for here appears to be ways to illegally download them. Is asking for help to pirate apps allowed on Toucharcade?

I never asked for help. I asked is there was a possible way. Plus if the games were still available I would pay for them, but they aren't.

Yes, there are possible ways. And since you claim you are not asking for help, then that is the end of my reply.
