Description says 60% off... introductory sale, I guess.
Normal price should be 3 bucks then.

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

You know, the App Store has made me realize that a lot of genres I don't normally like can be fun. So while I would usually just pass on a ball rolling game, one of this quality and price seems worth it to me, even if to only confirm whether or not I'd actually enjoy it.
