Queen's Crown was an iOS game published and developed by Com2Us in 2009. The game was reminiscent of the Beyond Oasis series and featured Zelda-esque gameplay but with stronger RPG Elements.

The story involved a missing princess named Ann, who had to run away from home to avoid being slaughtered like the rest of her family. She is guided by the Grim Reaper on her journey to avenge her family. Unlike most iOS RPGs at the time, much attention to detail was put into the game, such as separate BGM and SFX audio controls, and Ann playing a flute when left alone for long enough.

Sadly, the game was pulled from the App Store in 2013 for unknown reasons, and hasn't been seen since.

In May 2017, LMW member TServo2049 found an .ipa file of version 1.0.0 of the game in a pack of various apps uploaded to the Usenet group alt.binaries.warez in 2010. He subsequently located another .ipa of version 1.1.3, the latest update of the game, on a Vietnamese download site. Both versions have been reuploaded; version 1.0.0 can be downloaded here, and version 1.1.3 can be found here. (NOTE: This game is not playable on modern iPhones, only on older devices/OS versions.)

Still nothing? It's strange that they pulled the first game down yet the story of the sequel continuous directly from this. When I played the 2nd game I was like "Why is this little girl the queen?" and "Why is the grim reaper her friend?" Such a shame really. But the optimist inside me says that nothing in the internet is totally erased. Somewhere out there, in someone's dropbox or googledrive is that apk we've all been looking for...

It's an iOS game, it wouldn't be anywhere Google and it wouldn't be an APK file

iPhone apps use the .ipa format, not .apk

I found an .ipa of version 1.0.0 on an old Usenet upload: https://driv...EWXRmS1pMSE0

I actually got it to install on my phone using Cydia Impactor, and it even opens, but I can't click "Agree" (probably an iOS 10 / iPhone 6 compatibility issue). I'll try to find an old iPhone, but until then does anybody else have an old or unlocked device they can try this on?

I'd like to report that any link that takes me to their site (i.e "Join now" and "More games" will crash the game)

Btw the issue with the Terms screen in the beginning is the resolution size of the iphone 6 and later screen. Happens on most outdated apps (can't click issue). Sadly I don't know how to fix it except using "PerfectFit" to get a full screen on the app.

I'm not sure about the iphone 5/5s/5c/SE screen resolution though.

OK, I dug out my old, non-jailbroken iPhone 3 and installed the .ipa onto it with Cydia Impactor, and the game works. So can we change this to "Found"?

Update: I just found the last patched version, 1.1.3, it was still up on a Vietnamese file hosting site, I found it through a Vietnamese 3rd party app store site (but don't worry, the game is still in English). I've reuploaded it to my drive as well: https://driv...mOE5nVEJCcmM

Glad to see this was found. Alos please know that this works on 3.5 inches displays (aka iphone 4s and earlier). Can someone confirm if it works on iPhone 5/5s/5c screen resolutions?

Oh, and you guys know that if you brought/got the game when it was available on the App Store it should still be re-downloadable via the "Purchased" page? I know this since I have a few old apps that are no longer in the app store that I brought/got.

Do you guys have any idea how to install the app? I would love to check this game out. I have an old iPod touch I can use.
