Adventure Pop was delisted on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One during the month of July 2018 according to TrueAchievements.com. As a free-to-play product it may eventually become impossible to acquire even if you had previously downloaded it. As of August 2018 it was still possible to re-download and play the game, although the in-game store (where players were encouraged to buy gems with real money) had been disabled.
Peculiarly, the entire game is watermarked with a ‘GameSparks Preview Mode’ stamp. GameSparks is a full-cycle game development platform that was purchased by Amazon shortly after Adventure Pop was released. They offer a free version of GameSparks for evaluation purposes only which may be one reason Adventure Pop was delisted. Between the seemingly illicit use of GameSparks and disappointing performance of in-game sales, 505 Games may have chosen (or been forced) to pull the game just six months after release.
