150.000 Downloads, maybe half of them for free but they sold a lot of copies, I don't understand why this is free again?! And the first sale was a mistake? I'm not sure anymore.

Might be a good game if they ever sort the controls out, on the iPod touch at least it's not even worth getting for free because its unplayable

I doubt half of them were free...it only went free (the first time) for what...4 hours, less?

Got to enhance visibility in the appstore with a new device just recently released yesterday. I think everything done so far.. the 'mistake' of going free for a while and price drops and launch of the game prior to the iPhone 5's release were all calculated measures to steadily increase visibility on the charts at every opportunity and maximize sales for the remainder of this year. I have nothing against it though.

Yea, I'm starting to doubt that story as well. I feel that they meant to put it free the first time, but the early adopters got angry so they decided to brush it off as an accident.

I'm not complaining though, I got it free the first time.

Just downloaded this...

First, the visuals and audio are nothing short of remarkable.

That said, the controls are either not great, or I am horrible at this type of game, to the point where it's hard to stay motivated to play.

Combined with the presence of non-persistent/consumable IAP upgrades sadly means an almost guaranteed deletion for me.

If the developer does something about the controls and IAPs, this becomes a keeper, as well as an automatic, "this shouldn't have been free" guilt IAP purchase, but until then, it's beautiful, but I keep games on my iDevices to enjoy playing them, not look at them and/or manage IAPs.

DBC

I could never give up.
