    I deleted Rocket Riot a while ago to free up some space on my surface.
    Tried to re-download it from from download history.
    I'm being told that game is no longer available and can no longer be bought.

    Gunpowder (W8) is also no longer available. Dude, Gacys, you're right. Physical media for good.

    WP games can be manually installed by using an SD card and downloading the game on you computer from the store.

    Windows 8 games can be reinstalled by going to your apps screen and moving the mouse to the top of the screen. A menu will appear where you can see all apps you had installed and gives you the option to install again.

    This is actually getting on my nerves. They say that all these Xbox compatible devices are getting full support but they are removing so many games from those devices. Like what the f**k Microsoft and Xbox? Your taking the very things that formed the gaming community of yours.

    i don't think this is about microsoft. most likely it's about licenses paid for a specific period.
    ROADHOUSE.

    Not true for WP: As soon as it's delisted, you cannot install the game anymore. Will never buy a WP-game again... wasted enough money on games that are now delisted and cannot be played anymore :-(

    I've had enough of this BS as well. I have directed a tweet to MS and Xbox. Guys, please retweet it so they hopefully get the message and a) warn people before they are delisted in the future and/or b) possibly relist some games (which happens but rarely).

    MugenKairo said:Airtight Games have closed for business so I would be getting Quantum Conundrum as soon as I could before that gets delisted. It is an awesome puzzler.Good call. Panic stations. Best grab that DLC before it disappears.
    Has the DLC always been 2 quid each? I'm sure I would have snapped them up earlier if they were.

    Delisted, but previously purchased, Window 8 / 8.1 games can be redownloaded.

    1. Open the Store app.
    2a. Win 8.0: Right-click or swipe down to select "Your apps."
    2b. Win 8.1: Choose Account, then "My apps."
    3. Select the game you want to reinstall. Right-click or swiping down should work. There will be a box around the game with a checkmark. It can be fiddly. In 8.1, it is easy to accidentally move on to the game's page.
    4. Click "Install" at the bottom of the screen.

    If you get to the game's individual page, you've gone too far and will get an error message if you try to reinstall.

    Still trying to figure out why the WP and Win 8 versions of Rocket Riot were delisted. The XBLA version would have been less surprising since it was published by THQ.

    The Codeglue FB page said on June 14, regarding the iOS version: Since 2 weeks the iOS version of Rocket Riot is published by us, rather than by Chillingo. They did a great job and got us featured as well in the US as the UK, but the term of our agreement ended and we decided to give it a go ourselves! So there you have it, an iPhone 5 compatible Rocket Riot (finally)!

    ~Team Codeglue
    Perhaps there was a similar contract expiration for the WP and Win 8 versions. Hopefully Codeglue will publish those again as well.

    The Rocket Riot FB page had April and May postings, soliciting feedback for development of a "follow-up to Rocket Riot." And RocketRiot.com is still active, with the Win 8 version taking center stage. I hope this all means it will be coming back.

    Edit: Rocket Riot will (probably) be back. I tweeted Codeglue and had this exchange. @Codeglue Why were the WP and Win 8 versions of Rocket Riot delisted? Pls keep supporting WP and Win 8.

    Reply:
    We will! Don't worry! We will be publishing the game ourselves now instead of Microsoft. So we're in transition. :)

    Great to get a quick and real answer! I encourage everyone to support Codeglue.
