What? Free after a week? This early adopter stuff is just getting ridiculous. I'm just about done being an early adopter after stuff like this. Why not wait for a month to buy especially when one has 8000 games already.

And so many times lately, the game goes freemium convert before I even load it up. Kinda makes me feel that ios maybe doomed, just freemium converts and early adopter blues.

It's getting really stupid to be an early adopter, it is sad.

Well, as always the premium runner had gone freemium in a week, and scammed the early adopters. Really nothing new, but makes all of us hesistant buying games.

The game itself is fun, better than average runner. Worth a look, hope they didn't add any inaps or wait timers to my premium version, but anyway this is old news.

I don't have any problems that this is now free. But I really hope that my version is still ad-free after the update !

A runner with iaps usually end up being free, but this one goes free pretty fast knowing it is made by a decent developer. I wonder why :/

I dunno. For some reason this is the first game that I will try to get my money back from Apple, I'm sure they are gonna tell me that I can only get a refund within 3 days or something, but heck, it maybe worth a shot.

Just getting sick of all these games going down after 3 to 7 days. But anyway, this is the end of my rant. I will most definitely ask for a refund. I wonder what will happen. Probably have some rule that the first submittal only will be refunded. I am curious. And please no 99 cent gamer talk. Sure it's only one coke, but everyone should have the right not to get the early adopter blues.

I don't mind being an early adopter on the games that deserve it. Like Lego Batman (one of the rare games I bought with IAP), Jacob Jones, and Gemini Rue.

My general rule tho, is if u see a ton of crappy IAP like a bunch of bags of coins, don't be an early adopter or download until its free. I knew this game would go free in short time. It'll save you a lot of money in the long run. Too many games that need the support and don't have crappy IAP, I'd support those instead and they're usually the better quality games I'd rather spend a lot of time on anyways. Games with coin based IAP can wait
