Anyone know why Wooden Labyrinth 3D exploded?

It's not that I'm complaining as the developer, but I'm just wondering.. why? On June 16th the free version sales, which surprise surprise were slowly headed downwards, started to double in the US. After reaching another plateau where they were stuck for over week the sales exploded. In the last couple of days WL3D has become the #1 free game on the store!

I was earlier contacted by Apple to clarify that I owned the rights to the music of the free version. They said it "could be used for marketing", but never told if or where. I haven't found anything online, but I'm now seeing the results?

It just strikes me as strange that Apple would use WL3D for marketing, since it still hasn't been featured once (paid or free) on the App Store. And if not on the store, then where?

So, if anyone has seen it promoted by Apple somewhere, please share where. Any photos or such would be cool and worth a promo code.

Oh, check out the sale too, the full version is still sold at $1.99 for the rest of the day and at $2.99 tomorrow.

Thanks,

Elias

Maybe Steve Jobs in his sleep, uttered "oohhh oooh 3d, 3d, threeee-deee wooden labyrinth" and his Apple handlers followed his decree and did something for you.

It exploded because the US marines found out that the game was the game Iraq people play so they bombed the game.
People are now flocking to get the game before it explodes

Maybe Steve Job's thing between the legs was made out of wood and it got bigger and taller and he got all his henchmen to buy Wooden Labyrinth 3D, instead of the 2D version because he thought 3D looked more realistic

I thought the application opened a virus onto all computers, forcing people to buy it, and forcing all the apple computers and itunes computers to change the page however needed?

Downloaded by all those people upgrading to iPhone 3GS's refusing to have any non-3D games on their iPhone...

Side comment: Does anybody see 3GS and think Apple 2GS?
