It says there is an app of the game for ios but I couldn't find it at the app store. Any hints how I can find it? Want to play it via ipad when no one is around to play with. Many thanks in advance.

I don't think there's an IOS hive-only app, but you can play using
the Boardspace.net app from your ipad.

I have an iOS app called Hive Online. It's for iPhone... but I can't seem to find it on the App Store right now. Sorry.

I have exactly the same issue with the Alien Frontiers app which used to exist and no longer does.

I've read that Apple is reaping dead apps from the store. Maybe that's
what is happening?

Hive was just on sale for free about a month ago.

You're not missing much. It had a very weak AI and sometimes allowed illegal moves, which would then break the game. The implementation on boardgamearena.com is nice.

There are two different Hive apps for iOS - name Hive and Hive Online. I have both on my phone. Hive was removed from the Apple store a long time ago - I'm sad that the new one has also gone away.

Hive was removed from the app store because our contract with the developer has ended. The developer was no longer updating the app and it has not been updated for years, so we did not renew the contract, and are now looking for new developers.

Hive is available on Steam, as well as my new game Tatsu, both are excellent apps developed by BlueLine Games.

The best solution for us, would be If BlueLine Games would adapt both games for iOS. BlueLine Games are a great company, dedicated to their products, so that would be a very good solution for us.

That sounds great. If you end up making this happen, please consider an Android adaptation as well!
