@AnarKitty

It wasn`t meant to slam you. I add it so the talk about "There was already a Version out of this Game but I can`t find the Thread for it" doesn`t even burgeon.

I will remove it and replace it with the upcoming HD Gameplay Trailer if you would prefer it that Way...

It's all good - no offense taken, I just wanted to make sure everyone knew this was (technically) a new app. If you want to add the excellent HD gameplay trailer too, that would be great.

Is there any reason I should have this if I already have Premium?

It says above and in the app store description that it has Game Center but it doesn't seem to, or at least it's not working.
Why couldn't they just make the HD version universal?

Really unsure what to do here. I "bought" this but have had the premium version on my phone forever. The only thing making me want to replace that with this is the fact that it's almost half the size. :/ This new "model" is apparently freemium and I don't know if any of the coins have been shuffled around to make the game harder (and therefore persuading people to pay for coins). Ugh...
