    Doesn't Microsoft own the studio behind tentacles now? That and ilomilo were the exclusives that made wp7 my go to platform for mobile gaming and now we're missing half of that. How hard could it possibly be to fix it for wp8?

    Before all the "we've heard this for a thousand times, whine somewhere else!!!!"-posts start, I'd just like to say: I have Tentacles running on my HTC 8X.

    Must be an early adopter bonus, something like "I was there before it was pulled!". ;-)

    Damn! You have Tentacles working fine for you?!
    What's wrong with them? Why can't they just put it back already. I even paid for that and completed zillions of levels and only had 3 achievements left :(
    I was happy to let all that go for WP8 and play that game from the start, only to find out it doesn't even exist!

    I installed a few games after I bought my 8X, just what jumped into my mind, and Tentacles was one of them. I have not played it very much, so I really don't know if there might be some bugs, but what I have played worked fine.

    When I look for it now I also can't find it anymore in the Store, so it's not a regional thing.

    Attached some screenshots.

    You miss your testicles and were looking for fellows? ;)

    I just got my AtivS and was shocked not be able to play tentacles! I want this game back! MICROSOFT!!! >_<

    Anyone who had purchased Tentacles before and still can't access them on their WP8 devices, contact Windows Phone support, tell them about this and they will refund you whatever you paid and let you retain the license so when the game appears on WP8, it will be free for you. I just got mine refunded and retain the license!

    This applies to ANY game or app that was Microsoft Studios and you paid for it but has now disappeared from WP8 store.
