wow.. that was quick. I knew that it will be free after a few months but not after only 3 weeks. It was worth the $2 I paid for it but it has some flaws and imo it was designed to be freemium from the beginning.

Well generally if a game has a ridiculous coin based IAP system, it's usually a safe bet to wait until its free if you want to save money, usually happens in a short time anyways. Endless runners like this with coin based IAP, yeah, I think we were all expecting it to be freemium at one point. I pretty much just support the games without coin based IAP these days...except for a rare few

I paid my $1.99 for this and I am not even remotely surprised... This was a freemium game banking on the name recognition to get as many sales from fans before going free from the jump! I just feel responsible for supporting this type of business move with my sale!
