Wolfenstein RPG - Not on App Store?

Hey there,

I can't seem to find Wolfenstein RPG on the App Store - does anyone know if it has been removed? Or maybe it's not available in Canada. In any case, I can't seem to find it!

You can look up removed games by google searching them and app shopper. You are correct that Wolfenstein RPG is not on App Store. Doom II RPG is still avaliable and has a similar style if that interests you.

Hopefully Wolfenstein RPG comes back. Since Wolfenstein RPG was published by Electronic Arts instead of ID Softward maybe it has something to do with with the rights to Wolfenstein not being licensed to EA anymore; I'm not sure who owns copyright over Wolfenstein but think it's ID Software. If that's the case hopefully we will just see ID Software republish it since ID Software still has all their previous iOS games still avaliable.

Thanks for that (and for the link)! I'm playing Doom II RPG now. It's really fun! I wonder why Wolfenstein RPG was taken down. That's too bad. Hopefully they put it back up!

Whoops, missed your explanation there. That makes total sense. Hopefully id can just republish under their name now. I guess we can only wait and see!

There are a number of other quality turn based first person world exploration games like The Quest Gold, QuestLord, Undercroft, etc that you might consider after Doom II RPG.

Can anyone confirm if Doom II rpg would work on an iPod touch 1st gen? Weird question, I know, but it's my only iPod touch. Thanks! (It says it only requires iOS 2 but can't be sure)

This is the kind of game that ought to work on that device. If it doesn't however, Apple will give you a refund. If they offer the product on the app store and you have the ability to purchase and download but not play it they give you yo money back. Takes like a week or two though

Screw the rights. What ever happened to the rights of customers to own what they bought? Effing A.

Apple did no favors by pulling their OWN blackjack game from the store.
