    The disappearance from App stores would be a good WTFWTK question:

    Unfortunately, the only truly safe place would be from your purchase history. It's still there for sure, but nowhere else can it be bought.

And these same avatars come to life and continue to battle in present-day Earth." - VZX

    I thought this game was quite fun, and some of the things Skeletor said that broke the 4th wall were hilarious. It was even cooler when She-Ra was added, and the temporary armor you could get in the spin challenge.

    Would've been sweet to get a couple more characters like Man At Arms, Stratos, and others...

    No one has heard an answer on this, but speculation suggests something happened with the license expiring perhaps. If you bought the game before it was taken down from the app store, you can always re-download it again (like myself)

    You will have to ask Mattel in a WTFWTK here: http://www.he-man.org/forums/boards/...questions-here!

    And/or e-mail the developer Glitchsoft and the publisher Chillingo (owned by EA)

    Does anybody know how to backup and restore the app data for this game on Android? I need to reset my phone and don't want to loose all the levels and lore I've unlocked.

    He-Man Platformer Gone?

    It appears that the side-scrolling He-Man and She-Ra platform game is gone from the Google store. Am I just missing it? Weird title? Is it gone from the Apple store too.

    Unfortunately yes it is gone. Luckily I still have access to the app via my iTunes past purchases. Not sure why it was pulled from the various app stores though. I think the .apk might be available for download out there somewhere though. Maybe give Google a look and see. Good luck!

    It's been gone from the Apple Store for over 2 years now. I think it may have had something to do with expiration of publishing rights. The publisher is Chillingo which EA bought in 2010.

    That's most likely the case. When a company makes a video game (whether it be for a console, PC, or smart phone) based on an IP that they are licensing from the owner of said IP, that license is for a limited time. Once that license ends, they can no longer make/sell new copies of the game unless they renew the license. More often than not it isn't worth them renewing the license as they aren't likely to sell enough additional copies of the game to make the cost worth while. A gray area might be if the company in question wants to make a sequel, and renewing the license allows them to also rerelease the previous title(s) (for example, Capcom had to stop making/selling Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 a few years ago when their license with Marvel ended, but they recently renewed with Marvel because they have a new MvsC sequel coming out later this year. And as part of that deal, they were able to start selling Ultimate MvsC 3 again - it has been released as a download title on PS4, and will be coming to Xbox One later).

    This isn't quite as big of an issue for console games that are released on physical discs since stores can still sell any remaining stock that they have, and used copies will be available. Of course if there is any major content that is released as a paid downloadable add-on, that can no longer be purchased once it's delisted (i.e. Marvel vs Capcom 3 had two dlc characters that weren't available to purchase when the license originally ended). In most cases, at least on game consoles, if you paid for any downloadable content back when it was available for sale (be it an add on or entire game), you can still redownload it if need be even after it can no longer be sold, but that's dependent on the respective store fronts maintaining that access to do so. I don't really play games on my smart phone (not a fan of using a touch screen for control), so I'm not sure how long phone games can typically be redownloaded after the fact. I was kind of interested in the MOTU game, but ultimately passed on it. If it had been a downloadable title for Playstation and/or Xbox that worked with a traditional controller, I would have been far more interested.

    Considering you downloaded it in the past with the same account you have on the tablet:
    With iPhone and iPads you just go to appStore, Updates, Purchased, Not on this device and find it on the list.

    I love this game! I was just playing it again a few days ago.

    It's too bad they stopped supporting it. This game was a ton of fun

    I'm bummed I missed out on this game. I didn't have any smart devices back then. I think I'd have enjoyed this one more than Tappers.

    I was just able to download it from my old purchases in the App Store, but only on my old iPad. Almost forgot how great it is! What a shame you can't get it anymore.
