    Some of these aren't in the UK either. Some of it, like TPIR and WWTBAM, is probably down to differences in currency and others such as Scrabble are probably down to different ways our countries spell things.
    Example: US- lady, UK- slag, AU-Sheila

    I'm noticing this more and more

    As time goes on I am noticing more and more that not all apps are available worldwide.

    Some are for obvious reasons (licensing issue, or they require localisation, etc). Others leave me completely mistified as to why they are not more broadly available.

    I have not been keeping a record of these apps, but I am noticing it more and more and I am concerned that it seems to be increasing.

    Frogger sucks so bad it shouldn't matter anyway. It really sucks - just trust me. :p

    Scrabble is awesome though, sooo that's not good :(

    You are not alone. We in Sweden are missing a lot of stuff too. The only argument I'm accepting is licensing issues but that shouldn't be an issue either.

    you call ladies slags! lol, that's so nice :p
    I, for one, have never called a lady a sheila, so I'm suspecting that you were joking about calling them slags? That's a bit off IMO :p well over here it is.
    Maybe you could have used the Mum example. Mum - Mom or something.

    On topic:
    *sad face*..

    If the surgeon game was not accepted here (maybe as it's 17+) I bloody hope Zombie Mangle is, cos that looks gory as! I will literally cry if that's the case.. then ask for an Ad-Hoc version or something!
