Oh my, have had this on my wish list. Looks like it's going to be a fairly busy night of purchasing for me.

Jesus would I ever be pissed if I were one of the alpha-buyers of this game. I mean, I'm only buying it now because of the sale, and thank you and everything, but nothing chaps my ass worse than when a developer gives the middle finger to it's earliest and most loyal supporters by putting a game on sale shortly after it's release. "Hey everyone who supported us the most and bought the game at release, we'll say thank you to you by giving the same game to our not-so-loyal supporters for 1/4 of what you paid for it !"

yeah... the developers said that the $1.99 price at launch was a "limited time 50% off launch sale" - and then they drop the price down without taking the price up? I'm sure there's going to be some upset people...

Not me... sorry if you got that impression... the game's worth more than $2 to me. But when people see "50% off limited time launch sale" - they expect that the price is going to go up after that... not down.

Anyway...

It's a great game... if you don't have it yet... you should get it... even if you don't like word games. This one has changed my perception of them...

Common practice now, even for Apple's GOTW's it seems. But yeah, I've never been the one to complain about AppStore prices. Downright silly for games that cost less than a few dollars in the first place.

I bought it at launch was worth the 2 dollars, and they need to eat too, so idc if they drop the price to make more money. It's not like buying a house, it's 2 dollars.

Who cares about the price drop--this game is brilliant. It's a steal at $2, and even moreso at $1.

For $1 get this, I think it's better than those two. Definitely different kind of gameplay and it's relaxing without time limit.
