Default Available on iOS, but not on PC?

What is your Position on Games that have been ported over to iOS, but are unavailable on PC's?

I don't really understand what you want.

Do you mean if we host games that are sold for other systems? Then, the answer is: yes.

iOS is considered a separate platform.
We continue hosting PC games that received re-releases on different platforms unless specifically requested otherwise by the publisher.

That's good news...

I get a foreboding feeling seeing stuff like this appearing.

It raises unpleasant memories of "Compilation Shovelware" CD's...

Actually all said above does apply, unless the copyright owner bothered to actively tell us to take a game down, possibly because of a re-launch in a new platform. And that's one motive that may make some owners scour abandonware websites. Whatever the motive, if the owner said so, we'd have to take it down, regardless of our house rules, which only apply in absence of other knowledge--that is, when the game is truly abandoned.
