Pac-man CE no longer available?

When pulling up links to the appstore for pac-man CE even from namco's site I get 'Your request could not be completed. The item you've request is not currently available in the US store'.

I can't find it via searching in iTunes either.

Anyone know why it got pulled?

Yup, it appears to be gone. No idea why it would have gotten pulled, there were no recent updates to it that could have caused problems or anything. Maybe they're updating it for an iPad version or something.

Hi,

This is interesting, I went to buy the expansion pack and cannot buy it either.

Gives me a message saying I need a network connection.

Hmm, I'd have to guess it'll be back. It doesn't look like Namco is pulling an "Atari", all their other apps are still there. No idea why it was pulled though. Would be pretty annoying if I was unable to d'l the Expansion pack in the future if I switched to a new device.

Hi,

I expect it back too.

Just checked to see if the expansion pack had been pulled too, and it looks like it was, hopefully just temporarily.

Hadn't bought the expansion pack yet, was hoping to do so soon. There should really be more safeguards in the app store to prevent developers from arbitrarily pulling their apps without warning (just a clause in the license agreement stating that devs have to provide a "valid reason" for removing their app would be enough).

I really hope I won't have to jailbreak just to play the full game.
