Purchased Games Not showing up??

I purchased several games about 10 minutes ago, I forgot to clear space for it on my ipod touch 2 gen because it was on the 9th page so when I synched my ipod, only 2 games of which I purchased show up on my idevice. I deleted games I don't play, re-synched, nothing. I re-downloaded the games that don't show up, still nothing.

What can I do. This is very frustrating.

The reason is that they are stuck on the invisible page until the 9th page is emptied and then the invisible page would take the place of the 9th one. It is unfortunate.

Although I do think It is a little unnecessary for anyone to have 9 pages of applications (no offense) it is kind of weird that it does this. Maybe Apple did this to try to tell us that having more than that many isn't stable or something. Hmm. Anyways, sorry about you're problem.
Good Luck

If you download them on you're computer (free since you already purchased them if they were paid apps) then you could try going to the apps tab on your iPod in iTunes and un-checking the apps that are new, synching, rechecking them, and synching again.
Hope this helps, not sure if it will but I hope you can fix your problem.

Yes, they are all checked. I see them in my list of applications under apps in the itunes software.

It's like they are hidden on my pages and I can't see them. Like I said I should have made space for them.

Just need to turn your device off then back on again.

Could uncheck the games sync and then recheck and sync.
