Is this a first for Gamevil? I don't recall them dropping their games to free before, but maybe I just never noticed.

Besides their other extremely unpopular game called NOM: Billion Year Timequest, yes. They're Gamevil's two biggest failures by far but honestly their only flops. Their other games have sold exceptionally well, especially for RPGs, which tend to fail on the AppStore's charts.

Is this worth a download? Don't wanna really waste my time and give a game a try that doesn't really need one.

I'd say no...gameplay is weak...aesthetic is annoying...so is the music.

I bought this on release but it gets boring real fast and I deleted it after a couple of days.

Kinda boring for me too.. I'd say its kinda like a mix of endless runner and Guitar Hero (but with 1 note) from what I've tried so far..if that makes any since to you. The difference is how the 1 note changes in the way it reaches the bottom of the screen from what I tried so far.
