Rhythm Thief availability for iOS was short-lived. The game was recently made available for the iOS. It was previously a hugely popular title of 3DS. The game was priced at $10 and had many In-App-Purchases available.
The game also requires an internet connection all the time as it runs a data check every few minutes. Rhythm Thief is purely a single player game other than small added trading feature which is relatively new to the iOS release.
These were all the reasons that were causing whole a lot of anger in the community, but if that wasn’t enough, the game also started to run this warning that alerts the users of always online nature of the game.
After these issues just after the release, Sega issued a statement:
We are aware that consumers are experiencing issues with Rhythm Thief and our team is working around the clock for a solution. Our fans are very important to us and we aim to provide the highest quality experience when playing a SEGA mobile game. Stay tuned for more updates, we are working diligently to fix this issue.
After the company’s statement the game was pulled from the sale without any comment.
