For the IOS/Android versions, there''s a discussion about that here:https://www.tombraiderforums.com/sho...d.php?t=220323

For the Mac Version, the most probable reason is, that Apple dropped 32Bit support with a recent OS update and that they removed it as it won't run on modern MacOS systems anymore.

If someone has better info, please correct me.

If you bought the game BEFORE it was removed from the store you might be able to download it from the 'My Apps' (or so) section of the App Store. Otherwise you're out of luck.
Maybe Wine or some other emulator works if you really want to play on mobile.

I can confirm that the games still work on iOS 14 (not sure about the upcoming 15, but it shouldn't change anything). One major issue though: none of the FMV's play properly. They just show a blank screen for the duration of the FMV's length, and you can't skip them at all. Might not sound too horrible, but it means you have to sit there for like 2 minutes before you can even get to the main menus.

Actual gameplay works just fine, though. I would recommend just finding another way to play these games, but if iOS is your only choice and you've bought them before, then it is still possible.

Have you tried 1 and 2? For me 2 remains with black screen during menu and gameplay while 1 works.

Tried to play TR2 on iOS 15 (beta 3, which is incredibly stable by the way).

The game launches and the first FMV plays (I can't skip it tho I remember I could skip it before iOS 15). At the end of the FMV, it's just a black screen without music or anything else, no main menu at all.


I guess it's over, both games aren't playable anymore
