Opt in ones, not pop up or forced or any of that stuff.
The gameplay is exactly the same and there's no added energy system or paywall or anything of that type that I've come across anyway.

It's extremely fair, I mean I don't even feel right saying that it's fair because it's so fair (if you know what I mean) and offers some degree of monetisation for the developer and also gives everybody the best version of this genre/category/type/whole thing for free just by watching a few videos for in game credits to play it, simple as.

Personally, I'd still say get the paid one to anyone who hasn't gotten it (why haven't you, just get it) but if someone wanted to check it out to see if it lives up to the awards and the hype (and it certainly does) before purchasing the paid one, absolutely, do, but you know as easy as it is to watch a video, get some credits and play the game, it's so much better to just pay the two bucks and enjoy it without interruption (albeit opt in interruption) that way so if you do enjoy it after checking it out the free way, do.
One tends to become quite addicted to it so I think most will feel compelled (in a good way) to get the paid one.

(PS. Mess, second paragraph was just a general direction, not at you directly obviously enough)

Yup tried the free version, it's the same mechanics. Rather surprised to see it under "Best new games" in iTunes.

Thanks for the info guys - I bought the game when it came out, was just wondering what they did to make it free

Also will help out anyone else checking out this thread

Ran update and game won't open anymore. iPhone 6 with latest OS.

This is strange. After updating, game tries to start then crashes out. Then I double click to kill apps and I see the the 3's Swipe Screen from a previous game. I tap it and it goes away. Nothing. I'm still dead in the water since the update.

Like other posters, the game won't open since the update - nothing but a blank screen or crash. Does anyone know if the developer is working on this issue?

I just played my first game last night since the update on the IP6, no issues at all. Maybe try reinstalling or hard reboot of device? I hard reboot mine every few days so it has definitely been done since the update was installed (I installed it when it was released, just don't play the game very often).

I've Tweeted the developer a few times to no avail. I'm assuming they don't care? Maybe not widespread. I've tried powering down my phone but that doesn't help. Don't really want to delete and reinstall and lose my high scores. May have to eventually if it doesn't get fixed.

Don't hold me to it, but I think your high scores are saved in iCloud or Gamecentre, because they sync between my iPad and iPhone - so you shouldn't lose them if you reinstall.
