    This post details all the Xbox Live games that appear on the WP7 but appear to be missing on WP8.

    I thought we could share here if and when they become available or if there's an update on their status from Microsoft, the developer or publisher.


    The following games are (or were originally) missing from WP8:

    Babel Rising 3D (Ubisoft)
    Big Buck Hunter Pro
    Contract Killer (Glu)
    Crimson Dragon Side Story
    Dondonpachi Hi Maximum (Cave Interactive)
    Fable Coin Golf
    Feed Me Oil (EA)
    Full House Poker
    Ghostscape
    Glow Artisan
    Hasta La Muerte
    OMG: Our Manic Game
    Orbital
    Pac-Man Kart Rally (Namco Bandai)
    Pool Pro Online (Namco Bandai)
    Risk (Nokia)
    Shuffle Party
    Shoot 1UP
    Sid Meier's Pirates! (2K)
    Splinter Cell Conviction (Gameloft)
    Spy Mouse (Nokia)
    Tentacles
    The Harvest
    The Oregon Trail HD (Gameloft)
    Trivial Pursuit (Nokia)
    Turn N Run (EA)
    Zombie Attack! 2

    Legend
    Green = Available again
    Amber = Available again but with apparent issues
    Red = Missing

    Edit: Added publisher for non-MS games.
    Edit 2: Rearranged list alphabetical
    Edit 3: Using colour coding to show availability

    Great list. What really disappoints me are the Microsoft titles on here.

    I agree. Even then, some of them are fairly recent releases!

    MiniSquadron was removed from the WP7.x marketplace as well, hence why I didn't add it to the list.

    Strange thing is, even though I bought it, I can no longer re-download it.

    Yeah these probably need updates to function fully on WP8 so don't show up yet.

    I had Risk from EA games on WP7.5 and enjoyed the game. It's missing on WP8. Has anyone heard anything about availability on WP8?

    The Harvest was removed after the 5th Nov, as I downloaded it and playing it on my WP8 device. Kinda sucks for the rest of you, and shambolic in general for us early adopters of WP8.

    DoDonPachi received an update this morning. I didn't notice a changelog. Unfortunately it is still not playable on WP8. Crashes upon loading a level.

    Ubisoft (Babel Rising) and Gameloft (The Oregon Trail) have updated their games. Hopefully this means that Splinter Cell is not too far behind.

    Shoot 1UP on the other hand has been removed; although the developers have said it should be back soon.

    Strangely enough, the MS games still haven't been updated.

    Edit: I believe WP Central contacted some of the developers with missing games and some of them had already started working on fixes. Is there any chance WPC can share this info so that we at least have an idea what to expect and don't hold our breath for those other games?

    I'm not able to download Angry Birds Space or Angry Bird's Star Wars on my new Lumia 920, but they worked fine on my Samsung Focus. The website tells me that my version of windows phone is not compatible with the application, but if I navigate to them in the store on the phone it wants me to buy them again. What gives?

    Note: I upgraded from a HTC 7 Trophy to the 920
    Crimson Dragon : Lost all my, purchased via LIVE, crystals even though I transfered all the data, dont know if this has something to do with the update?
    The harvest: Is still missing...
    Many of my previoulsy purchasd apps are asking me to buy it again when i look them up in the store.

    Does anyone know anything about getting refunds? Because something is going wrong with the updates

    I assume you are using the same Live account on your new phone?

    Crimson Dragon: The backup feature of WP8 does not transfer your save game, although I would expect Live purchases to be tied to your account so not sure on that one.

    Previously purchased apps: When you click on buy the first time, it will tell you that you already bought the game and asks if you wish to download it again. You won't be charged again.

    Shoot 1UP is available. But on my Lumia 920. It crashes after 3 bosses or something. Its a bit in to the game. Very annoying.

    Babel Rising has been removed again.


    This is my knife. There are many others like it, but this one is mine.

    Frustrated that I bought Sid Meyer's Pirates not long before upgrading to my 920, and it's still not available. From memory, the reason quoted was incompatible resolution, or something like that. :(

    I've been waiting on Dodonpachi Maximum since day one. I'm dying for a quality Japanese shooter. You'd think with the plethora available for Xbox Live that one would have made the jump to Windows Phone.

    Try sending a nice email to Alex Adjadj at Namco Bandai. I already sent him one inquiring about the few games that need to be updated for WP8. aadjadj@namcobandaigames.com
