Inability to download a free app. Help?

I want to download Deadlock Online (free). I double tap the button on the app store, enter my password, a app comes up and it says 'Waiting'. After a minute or so it disappears.

Then I try again and it starts loading to around 10%. Then 'Loading..' changes to 'Deadl..ine' (something like that), and it doesn't load anymore. It disappears when I reboot my iPhone 4.

I'm running iOS4. Did anyone else experience this problem too?

How much memory do you have left on your iPod? You're going to need about 200 MB of space to download Deadlock.

Just do all the standard things. Close all of your background applications and then do a hard reset. After that try to download it. If that doesn't work just wait a while and then try again. If it still doesn't work you might need to send an error report.
