  1. Our first removed Switch game. Normally, I’d say “I guess this will be the first WAD/WUP for modders to install on the Switch (you know, for games you can get anymore like The Magic Obelisk or Meme Run (thank god)”, if they didn’t already state that they would bring it back.

    1. I see games removed off eShop all the time, then put back on. Thimbleweed Park, This is the Police, Tiny Metal, Zero Gunner 2 and several others. It’s usually sorted in a manner of weeks, but it happens all around.

      1. Okay fine, quite a few games were removed. I guess The Pinball Arcade, Meme Run, and The Magic Obelisk were the only digital exclusives I read about, while the latter two never returned.

  2. I was thinking they removed it because of the terrible performance. The game slows to a crawl when the ball quickly launches away, and speeds back up when it gets close to the bottom. It’s very frustrating to lose at least one ball per play because of that.
