There’s some good news and some bad news for Disney fans today. We’ll get the bad stuff out of the way first, because it’s a killer: Tiny Death Star has been pulled from mobile platforms. The good news? A stack of Disney games have hit Steam. Fair trade? You decide.
Star Wars Assault Team has also been removed from both the App Store and Google Play – just five months after it was officially launched.
Tiny Death Star is, of course, the Star Wars-themed version of Tiny Tower, created by British mobile studio Nimblebit. Developer Ian Marsh claims that his company was not told about the game’s removal until after it had happened. Explaining that Tiny Death Star was “a significant source of revenue for us”, Marsh says the decision to remove it hurts the small company. “My assumption is they don’t feel it is worth it to maintain the game any longer,” he says.
If you’ve already purchased Tiny Death Star or Star Wars Assault Team on your iOS device, you can still access it through the Purchased tab – if you never had a chance to check it out, now you’re outta luck.
Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two is also here, making its PC debut… perhaps the less said about this one, the better.
Making this whole deal even sweeter, you’re able to get all these games for 10% off if you pick ’em up before Sunday, October 12 – if that’s the sort of thing you’re interested in.
