Apple has quietly killed off Texas Hold’em, the first and only iOS game the Cupertino company ever offered.

As spotted by MacRumors, Texas Hold’em is no longer available on the App Store. Trying to click its product page now gives users an error message.

An Apple spokesman confirmed that Apple is no longer offering the application, but declined to elaborate.

The $4.99 card game, which continued the card-playing franchise from the clickwheel iPod era, went on sale just weeks after the launch of the original App Store. Apple pitched the poker game as an example of the kind of things developers could do on its then-fledgeling software development and sales platform.
