    how can we contact the dev to ask for it back?
    He has a website (Adam Atomic) that includes his twitter @ADAMATOMIC, I've send him a message requesting him to consider an official port of his game. I've also included a blog posting from a small independent developer happy with his decision to port his app Solar Explorer (the story was posted here on Crackberry) and the success he garnered since.

    Hopefully @ADAMATOMIC realizes that App World is another avenue to make $$$$ (as he sells the app in itunes for the iOS platform).

    If you are still craving to play the game, there is the official flash version (free & works perfectly on playbook browser) at CANABALT

    I would have told the guy OH WELL you made it OPEN SOURCE so sue me and let a judge decide and he will be told by the judge OH WELL just like all of the other cases that tried to retract OPEN SOURCE!
    maybe, just maybe you should check the licence canabalt is released under and to which parts of the software they apply before you start shouting random nonsense about judges and stuff.

    open source does not mean that the original author of the software gives away all his rights...

    How can the original dev. retract open source? Is that like an Internet Porn Star wanting all of their pictures pulled down from the net?

    I have Canabalt on my PB but it will no longer load past the intro screen where you are told to tap once to jump and tap twice to go to full screen. I looked for it on App World to see that it was gone.

    What is Open Source anyway if it is not OPEN? Doesn't that mean no restriction to what ever platform it is ported to? Or is it open source as long as it is only on Platform X or Platform Z but not Platform Y? I remember that happening to Virtualization, Microsoft tried to limit license use to the processor and native hard drive partition but got thrown out of court and laughed at, now anyone can have Windows on a Mac as long as they have a valid license; a license is a license regardless of platform and all of the case history proves that out!


    I would have told the guy OH WELL you made it OPEN SOURCE so sue me and let a judge decide and he will be told by the judge OH WELL just like all of the other cases that tried to retract OPEN SOURCE!

    Let the cows out and they will eat grass
    The game isn't open source. And even if it was, that doesn't mean you can just take it and do what you want, that depends on the license.

    I'm sorry, if I could have it any other way I would. The law is not on my side I'm afraid!

    Enjoy it and don't uninstall it. If you need the bar file at some point, I can sort it out privately.
    Isn't Canabalt open source?
    PS: I didn't uninstall it...
