Yeah, there was an old thread, but whatever. I can see it went on sale. It's former price aad $2.99 and before that it was $4.99. It is very polished and fun. The game may not be for everyone, but if you think popping bubbles is fun, there is no better game for the idevice.

Thanks for adding this thread. This wii-ware game dropping to $0.99 is definitely worth it.
