I haven't had a chance to give it a proper run-through yet, but in the main thread posted above, squarezero's a fan of it.

Didn't expect this one to go free so soon, it just released right?

Holy crap, it happened just like I posted in Project 83113, a game came out at $2 and 2 days later has gone free, and I think this will become a freemium game. If that is true, man, I feel sorry for the early adopters on this one.

I posted a question on the project 83113 thread about a scenario like this where a company might just release a freenium app as a premium app to get money from early adopters and then change a couple of days later to freemium.

Project 83113 was getting a lot of heat because they went free about 3 weeks, but wow, this game went free after 2 days, but this game does look more like a preplanned freemium, unlike project 83113.

The game is worth downloading, not as great as sega all stars, but a solid title, but I feel fremium all over it, coins, buying stuff exc. Didnt have time to look at the inapps if any, but the game feels like a freemium game. Oh use the slider button control, it is much better than their default tilt control.

Interesting situation this game is in, I sure more games dont shaft early adopters like this one though. Can't believe I asked my question in the Project 83113 thread... Eerily come true so soon...
