There are several Playrix games of the Fishdom variety - all basically the same, but with different themes... Still a pretty good match 3, and it is fun to max out the aquarium...

Even though it says it's the "Premium" version, and that the price went from $4.99 to free, there is a Buy button. When you click it, it says it's $4.99 to unlock the game. Has anyone else experienced this?

That doesn't seem free to me...

They did the same thing with the Halloween one too, where it said premium and you still had to pay.

It works. You have to install it and enter the game without wifi/mobile data on for the very first time.

Turn on Airplane mode on your iPad. Then open the app for the first time.

I took no chances. I deleted the app from my iPad, turned on Airplane mode, and downloaded the app from my computer. Then, with Airplane mode still on, I played a few rounds and closed the app. Then I disabled Airplane mode (which re-enables your Wi-fi), reopened the app, and the Buy banner was gone.

Sorry for the ridiculously long explanation, but I hope that helps.

Thanks - that worked, and looks like it worked for 4 Elements too.

Do you mean Brickshooter Egypt? Same as mentioned. "You have to install it and enter the game without wifi/mobile data on for the very first time."
