Apple has pulled Electronic Arts’ new Spore Origins game for Click Wheel iPods from the iTunes Store. Released yesterday evening, the game was exhibiting lock-up problems with both iPod classic and some fifth-generation iPod units, causing the game to stick on the loading screen, and forcing the user to perform a hard reset to remedy the issue. It remains unclear when users can expect the game to return to the store.

Update: The game is one again available from the iTunes Store.
