It's free because the rest of the game is offered through IAP

"This download includes the full version just waiting to be unlocked; either from the title screen or during your quest."

Oh man...I don't know how to feel about that. Any idea if a standalone full version is coming out? :/

See, that's what I get for not getting the time to read the description. >.<

Anyways, picked it up already. Will play after I'm done with the releases.

Aww. You guys had me at the free part. I guess I'll try it if it's really worth paying for Iap. Is it free to play or unlock full game with iap?

I never get why people say things like that. I see no difference between paying in app or not it's just a way to eliminate the need for a lite version. Especially for this one!

2.99$ for full unlock. Though i don't know if that's in NZ dollards or not. Anyway it's freaking cheap so buy it!

Dont see why he wants a 'standalone' version ?

I've never been one to complain about unlocking a full game through an IAP, but every time this happens, there's a possibility of another version being released. I'm just concerned about buying the IAP only to have another version come out at a later stage. It didn't happen with Cordy for example...but you never know.

$2.99 USD, NZ prices aren't nice and even like that.
