    I recently bought an old iPhone 4s for gaming, and I restored most of my library of 32-bit games, yet...

    I'm having trouble with a couple that aren't showing up in my purchase history. Does anyone know a workaround for finding these games?

    GeoDefense
    Pew Pew 1 and 2
    Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords
    The Blocks Cometh

    I bought those games when they were released, but they aren't in my purchase history like the other apps. Any thoughts/help?

    Thank you!

    Unfortunately if you didn’t back them up in an iTunes library you’re fucked. If apple removes a game from the store or a developer doesn’t pay their fee, and their apps are taken down, that includes your purchase history. I’ve updated my phone and certain games like the ones you listed did not reappear.
    It is the single worst thing about using Apple and iPhone. I’ve considered switching to Google Play for this reason.
    I’ve lost a lot of good games over the years.
