    I just noticed today that Starbyte's game Space Invasion, which I really like, is no longer available on the AppStore. This was the first game made by the developer of Black Mamba Racer. It's a Space Invaders variant, and a really nice one. Everything the game adds and changes improves on the original, which isn't often the case with these types of variant games.

    I've emailed the author to find out what the scoop is, but I have to presume that it's gone for good because in the process of doing this, I discovered that the game is also no longer listed on Starbyte's web site (it use to be.) I presume that they were forced to take the game down, but hopefully I'll find out for certain soon.

    Also hoping to get some info on what their next app will be.

    Unlikely, considering Space Invaders is from Taito, not Atari. ;)

    True, but Square Enix is also really good at threatening legal action.

    I got a response and it isn't entirely clear:

    Might still have been a take down. I hope they do bring out such an update.

    Also, they told me about a soon to arrive and significant Black Mamba Racer update, but I'll post that in the Black Mamba Racer thread!

    Space Invaders is from Taito :) Looks like their porting the revamped Space Invaders to the AppStore. I have it on the DS and it's effin' awesome.
