From the sound of it, I will as well (knowing that I'll need to get IAPs). Not surprised by the quick price drop. Now how much longer to freemium?

I really expected the first price drop on this one would be to free, too. Is the game even affordable to play for very long?

I won't do the IAP's at all (I just can't bring myself to spend real money on virtual currency within a game). I'd imagine within the next month or so it'll go free simply to try and make some more IAP money.

The game itself seems a few steps below most other runners due to the character blocking the view too much.

Unless they are new to iOS gaming... at this point they should know better. Even folks today that bite at $0.99... will feel cheated like every other IAP heavy runner out there that goes free.

I would buy this game cause I love motion games, even bought Zaxxon when I knew that it too would probably go freemium at some point, but comments in the main thread of Veticus seemed so negative. So I think I will hold off for now and wait til xmas time to see what happens.

Kind of a weird day, had such high hopes for Pitfall, Totem Runner, and Verticus; a little disappointed since I thought getting all three would be awesome. But in reality, much rather play shadowgun deadzone over any of these. Guess I was expecting too much.

Oh, I forgot about Chimpact, haven't gotten around to playing that yet, hopefully it will be good.
