they probably realized it was a stupid idea and ditched it. I wont ever buy anything from them, especially because they review their own games with 5 stars.

There was a game called GameLab that contains 3-games-in-1.

They promised to release more games each month or something and would increase the price as they did. So they told people to buy now if they want to get in on it early.

Then they had a name fiasco that forced them to pick a new name and disappeared soon after.

Last I heard they said they couldn't do anything in February, but would have updates out in March (or something along those lines).



Here's one of their original posts from back in December:

Last night the update was approved and we are in the app store now with 3 games. If you already downloaded Gamelab, you should have an update with Oh Snap ready to go.

I am working on a new gameplay video now with Oh Snap! which should be done tonight. I'll post a link up here when it's ready.

Also it should be available internationally, let me know if it's not. If you have any other problems and your on AT&T (in the US) call me on my iPhone directly, or send me a text. My number is (eight-o-one) 712-5177. I'd love to hear your thoughts!
