The Sequence Review from Touch Arcade – 4.5/5

Chris Carter at TA takes a look at the recently released The Sequence puzzle game.

The Sequence is a rather unassuming game overall, but I came away pleasantly surprised. If you’re a fan of SpaceChem or other similar apps, this one is worth checking out.

Mos Speedrun 2 Review Gets Perfect 5/5 from Touch Arcade – “But Wait, There’s More”

Carter “3 1/2 stars” Dotson took a look at Mos Speedrun 2 over at Touch Arcade and gave it a full 5/5 stars.

Will you love Mos Speedrun 2? If you loved the Mikey games, you owe it to yourself to check this out, especially since the original Mos Speedrun was a fantastic game that heavily inspired that franchise. But this sequel is definitely more for the hardcore player who doesn’t mind repetition and the high level of challenge. This was a game I quit in frustration many, many times.

[Update] Missing Capcom and Telltale Games Coming Back – Others May Be Gone for Good

[Update: Good news! Touch Arcade spoke with Apple and the earlier report from Pocket Gamer did not come from official sources. There has been no policy change (thankfully) — apps disappearing seems to just be a bug for now. While developers can remove apps from the purchased list, it is not the default to do so. That’s what is happening and that is the bug that is causing the ruckus.]

Capcom and Telltale have responded to Touch Arcade and let them know that the missing games are coming back to the App Store. They were removed due to bugs with iOS 9. Seems like games companies aren’t putting in the time to test their games with beta versions of the iOS. I mean it was available for three months…

There has been a lot on confusion around the removed games recently. Due to a change in the iTunes store backend it seems as though anything removed from sale from all territories will no longer be available to download if you had previously downloaded it.

If this is a bug or the new policy is still up for debate. Pocket Gamer has a source at Apple that says it’s the way things work now — but there’s no written policy change to be found. If it is the new policy it is a 180 degree reversal of the way things have been working.

We’ll have to see how this shakes out.
