EA has pulled a number of mobile gaming classics from the App Store.

We noted last Friday that Dead Space and Mass Effect Infiltrator had gone missing.

Now it's become apparent that more titles have been removed. Here's the full list:

EA has stated that the reason for it removing all these titles is due to a recent shift in focus.

"We are focusing our efforts on developing new and exciting titles, as well as bringing new content and updates to existing popular games," EA stated.

It's a shame given that some of these titles helped to shape mobile gaming as we know it today.

That's both in how they drew huge audiences and, as Vlambeer's Rami Ismail said of Flight Control, showed developers "what kind of interactions & play made iOS games unique."
