For what it's worth the price drop is in celebration of an update with 2 new character classes, new locations, and some new quests. I found the gameplay grinding and repetative but still enjoyable so it might not be for everyone. The ability to customize each battle makes it accessible but that would betray it's difficulty that can be challenging at times.

A lot of the comments and user reviews complain about IAPs being necessary. But then there are some that say it isn't. Can anyone shed more light on this? I'm probably going to grab it regardless but I was just curious.

It's grindy, but I can't say that it's any more grindy than any other typical RPG. It's fun, funny, and definitely doesn't require IAP to enjoy. I haven't touched IAP, and even if you did, it would only help in acquiring items quicker, and doing so would remove one of the main incentives to continue playing, really. It's a game with a lot of charm and nostalgia for anyone who played the original D&D.

Sounds good. Thanks! I don't mind a reasonable amount of grinding.

It is possible the game was pulled due to some problems with today's content update resulting in some new users not having enough gold to start a game and existing save files reportedly getting deleted on update. I am sure it will be back soon.

What the heck is going on? It's not available in the CANADIAN App Store?!? That makes no sense. I really would rather use my iTunes credit than to fragment my apps more and buy something from another App Store.
