Sega has pulled 16 of its iPhone and iPad games from circulation

As Sega promised they would do last week, the company has now removed 16 of its older mobile games made for the iPhone and iPad from the iOS App Store. Sega didn't reveal which games would get the boot last week, saying only that "a number of them no longer meet our standards." Now Polygon has a full list of the removed games:

  • After Burner Climax
  • Altered Beast
  • Ecco the Dolphin
  • Golden Axe
  • Golden Axe 2
  • Golden Axe 3
  • Streets of Rage 2
  • Phantasy Star 2
  • Sega Columns Deluxe
  • Space Harrier 2
  • Streets of Rage 3
  • Super Monkey Ball
  • Super Monkey Ball 2
  • Super Monkey Ball 2: Sakura Edition
  • Virtua Fighter 2
  • Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown Guide

Anyone who has already downloaded these games can still play them until they choose to delete them off their iPhone and iPad. Sega said some of the delisted games might return in an updated form at some point in the future.
