This highly-rated hit casual game from ustwo is free for the first time since release in October 2011.

Unfortunately the game is no longer the one we all bought last year - destroyed by IAP and dev greed.

I for one will not buy any more games by Ustwo as this was a fine game which they have ruined by an unnecessary update.

Yes, if you own this game and haven't read the main thread, DON'T update it.

Jeez, another game joins my ever-growing list of "Do not update" apps, and another dev joins my "Never again" list.

Getting pretty depressing...

Won't even bother in that case. I still can't fathom how it's legal for publishers to effectively take elements of a game away from paying customers. Devs killing their reputations on a daily basis these days.

We need to make two new mega threads (to go along with ios rpg games, adventure games, etc.). The "do not update" thread and the "pulled from iTunes so back it up" (imame, idos, plenty of games...even sword and poker for a while) thread.

This thread existed for a while - but so many apps get pulled these days it couldn't keep up.
