Sneezies has been delisted worldwide from the PlayStation Portable and Nintendo Wii although the exact timing is uncertain. At the latest, the PlayStation Portable version of the game was delisted by June 2020.
On both Nintendo’s and Electronic Arts’ support pages, the game is included in titles affected by the 2014 shutdown of GameSpy. Although Sneezies is a single-player game it used GameSpy’s services for high score tracking. The game seemingly remained available until no later than May 2017, when we recorded an extensive look at the Wii Shop Channel and the game had already been removed.
Dracula: Undead Awakening, another Chillingo-published WiiWare title, was not delisted during this time and remained available on Nintendo Wii until the Wii Shop Channel was shut down on January 30th, 2019. This suggests that the delisting was due to the specific publishing deal between Retro Dreamer and Chillingo/EA coming to an end.
