If you can hit around 400-500k downloads then you might see a tiny hint of a boost for a few days, but I still wouldn't count on it.

That being said, if you can generate a few 100k downloads, you will likely see a nice little boost in revenue due to IAP purchases at least.

But you should just take it as it comes... figure out what to do once you see how well your free campaign goes.

And again, as always, in the App Store anything can happen, this is just from our experience (we've done quite a few free campaigns over the years)
Thanks for the added perspective. Hope your new Heroes and Castles is kicking butt! It's a great looking app.
