Wasn't this always free with IAP purchase to unlock the full game?

I think the developer was just trying to get some new downloads via price manipulation.

how unhappy would somebody who bought that be after seeing that it's a demo

sorry, I didn't look at the dates... I thought they might have increased the price, made it the full game, and had it set there because of the update making it retina for the new iPad... =o/

Oh well...

Which, if true, ends up being kind of silly, akin to shooting oneself in the foot, because what they'll likely end up getting is a slew of angry people posting one-star reviews about the "free" game actually costing $5.00...

Hmm, wouldn't expect something like this from this dev.
They jacked up the price almost a month ago.

I picked this up recently when it was on sale for $1.99, but you had to make the purchase from within the game after downloading it for "free."
