Seems like they're playing with the pricing to optimize sales and chart position. Good game or not, if it doesn't sell as well as anticipated, sales happen. Here's what the developer said in the game thread.

Anyway, it's a very cool game, definitely a deal at a buck

Awesome... but worried about how short the game is by reading the reviews, is it just a little over an hour?

Great game. Picked it up at launch and, yeah, sad there's already a sale. But, it happens to pretty much every game.

Hope this gets it some more attention so maybe some more levels will be made (15 is kinda short).

Game is too short and the endless mode is broken(crashes)...

But it's fantastic fun anyway.

Shame the devs stuck it to us first day buyers so soon though... won't be buying any of their subsequent apps right away in the future!

Just enable Game Center at the main menu and it works fine (and it's already fixed in an in-review patch).

No, what's a shame is that devs felt they had to halve their revenue during launch week just to gain some awareness of a decent little title that was worth the $2 I spent on it. Stop punishing devs for the fact that most buyers are even cheaper than you are. Pay what you think a game is worth and don't second guess your choice unless the game turns out to suck. Instead of thinking the devs did something to you by a later sale, realize, nope, the cheap dumbasses out there are screwing themselves out of quality indie devs by complaining over a $1 for entertainment.

In the not so long run, this environment is either going to weed out the cheap asses, or it's going to weed out the devs who take risks and produce novel, interesting games. I'd rather try and make the former instead of the latter happen.
