Touch Arcade was lucky enough to spot Assassin's Creed II: Discovery, an iPhoned/iTouched version of last year's DS game of the same name on Apple's app store this week. Too bad the game was taken down.
Discovery stars the same Ezio de Auditore featured in the hit Assassin's Creed II, but focuses on telling a new story through side-scrolling gameplay. Readers told me it involves Christopher Columbus. IGN described Discovery as some sort of mix of Assassin's Creed with Sonic The Hedgehog. All of this sounds too crazy to miss.
The good people at Touch Arcade have some video of the game in action, but they report that the Discovery is no longer on the App store. They note that Ubisoft says the build that was briefly available may have been buggy, incomplete and priced wrong.
If you happened to snag it, let us know how it is.
I'm checking with Ubisoft to find out when the game is slated to be released — and stay released.
(Update: I should have mentioned that this game was supposed to be out alongside its big brothers last November.)
