Hi everyone, yup the game will be free just for this weekend. Monday it goes back up to $0.99. The game has been doing incredibly well, with Apple featuring it in several places on iTunes. So, this is really just sort of an experiment in App Store dynamics, you might call it. I mean, the game isnt really designed to be freemium, but if it turns out the IAPs do well enough so that the game can still make some money even at free... then I might consider keeping it there longer, who knows.

Anyway, I hope you guys that havent played the game for financial reasons or whatever can now check it out, and I hope you like it.

The funny thing is I had no plans to ever change the price, I only just thought yesterday that it might be an interesting test to do this for a couple of days to see how it goes. But of course, if you like the game and decide to get any of the IAPs, that's always much appreciated. As a 1-person indie developer, I can assure you it all goes directly into supporting more game development.

Arghh, I'm honestly not sure how the jailbreaking might be affecting this. Did you try completely re-starting the device?
