    You're correct, chapter 1 is the original game, and chapters 2 and 3 (which I haven't played yet) were expansion packs and are only available to access after completing chapter 1.

    Puzzle Quest 2 is a completely different game and different from PQ1 Ch 2, if that makes sense.

    Hmm, I still find it weird that 'Puzzle Quest Chapter 1 & 2' for iPhone was 3.99, and 'Puzzle Quest HD' with all of the chapters is only 2.99.

    I was just wondering, why isn't this in the iTunes store anymore?

    It was removed around the same time that Puzzle Quest 2's Freemium version was released.

    I've spoken to the devs over Twitter. The app was pulled at the behest of someone else (presumably either Infinity Interactive, the developers of the original game, or D3 Publisher, the publishers of the original game), and will not be coming back under any circumstances.

    I pointed out that this might not endear Transgaming to the iOS crowd, to which they replied that they know, sad smiley, but it was completely out of their hands.

    Wait, what? Well, that sucks. I don't think I have it in my iTunes library anymore after several HD crashes.

    Jailbreak/pirating then, huh?

    I was disappointed to find this out a couple of days ago when looking for it. Fortunately, I purchased the iPhone version years ago (haven't installed it on my last two iPhones). I found I could still download it by going to App Store > Purchased > Not on this iPad > iPhone.

    Alright I had it backed up so I transfered it over. I had the free version then purchased all 3 chapters and I also had Puzzle Quest Chapter 1.

    I put both on then tried the free one first to restore my purchases but the App crashed non stop. I tried everything and it still crashed furthest I got was to the IAP screen.

    Then I loaded the Puzzle Quest Chapter 1 I had and it worked great so out of curiousity I went to the IAP section and tried to restore, obviously it found nothing but for some reason even though the App is removed from the App Store it let me purchase Chapters 2 & 3. Not sure if I should bring this to Apples attention or not.

    You assign greed to their motivations but let's be honest here-- it was released in December 2008 (nearly FIVE YEARS AGO) and was last updated to be compatible for iOS5 and was pulled from the store in 2012. I'm sure that converting PQ2 to freemium did have something to do with the decision, but it was also a very old game by mobile standards.

    Apart from mega blockbusters like Angry Birds, few of my 1st gen iPhone games work on current devices and operating systems.

    If you have this game on your purchased list you are still able to purchase the IAP for Chapter 3.

    I just purchased it an hour ago, it unlocks the expansion pack.

    Thanks so much for bringing this up. This was always my favourite (compared to PQ2) and I'd assumed it was gone for good. Found it in purchase history and restored Chapter 3 no problems also. Can't believe it still works in these days of iOS updates breaking games.

    I actually purchased the IAP which I never got round to buying back when it got released. I always thought that when it got removed from the App Store you couldn't buy the IAP any more.

    I've always loved this game, I played it for countless hours on my DS back in the day.

    I still available on the DSi shop on the 3DS if you prefer the pen input touch screen.

    We're these the original devs? Or do they have the rights to this game? Not that I care because PQ was my favorite and still is so ill download it anyways but still (;

    Damn did this get pulled or something? Not available in US store ):

    Wondering the same thing. I can't download it anymore from my past purchases and would love to give this another go, since I never finished it.

    This is the original iOS dev, yes. Does it work (for those that grabbed it). The original PQ hasn't worked in AGES. Where did it go? I'm going to cry

    Version is listed as 2.1.2, which was released in 2012. Glitch in the matrix?

    If you have purchased it, it is still available on your purchased list.

    You have to search it as Puzzlequest, with no space between the words.

    The IAP still work also, all the purchases and the restores.

    This game was pulled ages ago, around when Puzzle Quest 2 came out.

    The game is running perfectly on my iPhone 6s running iOS 10 beta.
