    Is there a way to download the ios version if you've never downloaded it before?

    No. The game has been removed from the App Store so only people who already "own" it can download it again.

    I think they've just killed the servers for AlphaJax.

    I was helping a friend on the game get the Superintendant achievement. The final one he needed. We have been glued on the game and it's only now I got asked to go off and help someone and have my dinner, and when I got back, they seem to have pulled the plug on the game.

    This is such a shit day, I didn't go to bed last night till 4am because of this game. Now I've spent 6 extra hours doing jack-shit.

    Well... that's about 20 hours of my life wasted. angry

    The same with Wordament Snap Attack. So close to 2.5 mil.

    My own fault anyway for trying to get this done as only saw article a week on Monday. Want to say thanks for the community for the advice and tips.

    Servers for Snap Attack appear to be down. I'm a bit annoyed and disappointed by the bugginess of the achievements. I got them all to unlock on WP but couldn't get Addict and World Champ to unlock on iOS. cry

    Snap Attack appears to still be up on iOS. But I wasn't able to complete it and I probably still won't.

    IOS is down now, tried most of the day to get it to pop Addict and World Champ but no luck with this version. At least I got the other three finished off.

    RIP. Thanks for letting people know that the servers are coming down. I really appreciate everyone helping each other out in this thread a ton with tips on how to get these finicky achievements to unlock; that was really great to see. I'm sorry the achievements were too buggy to unlock for some.

    At least we can stop worrying about these games and do something else now.

    EDIT: I can sleep peacefully now!

    My friend informed me he got the achievement. 30 minutes before the shutdown. Guess my 20hrs not wasted. Looks like he's the last person on the site to finish it.

    Phew... now back to WWE.

    My thoughts exactly. I put too much effort into this, I'm glad that it has finally been put to bed.

    Agreed, along with all of those others that were getting millions of points a month, sometimes over a million in a day. I can only imagine they were playing this game during all of their free time, and probably most of the day.

    I mean that can't be healthy, now their possible addiction is over at least.

    still generally between 200 - 300 people on Wordament whenever I've played lately.

    The problem is all the more casual people have left! When I was playing a few years back, I would almost always be in the top 10%, and managed a handful of legit top 10 finishes. Now it is only the hardcore remaining, and I'm quite pleased to finish top half of the leaderboard...
