Woah. Damn, these good games dont get much attention. Very solid game, highly recommended if you still are in doubt, or better yet, buy it when it goes back up in price.

Are you kidding? Well that's a nice thank you to the early adopters. "Blah blah we make a premium game with a price tag" well I hope they realise that ill not be buying there next game and ill just be waiting one week after release to get it for free.

I don't care how good this might be, or whether Ron Gilbert made it, if I ever play another Match-3 game, it will be too soon.

Holy crap! Don't know anymore whether to be mad or sad at these quick drops. Great game and no regrets buying it. So on one hand I hope this doesn't mean it hasn't been given it's due outside of TA and in the other hand, it's also this stuff that makes people think twice before buying at launch.

It's a shame that even those high-quality games drop to free in less than a week today.
Says much about the desperation of developers to stay visible at the Appstore.

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

Sad but true. And it also just keeps the cycle going of people realizing that it happens more and more. The devs lose and we all lose if they fail and leave the App Store for good.

I wish devs wouldn't give into this so easily, but also realize how brutal it is on the App Store.

It's a great game but another reason for me to stop buying games on release. I do it so little these days because of this and this is one of the times I cracked because I like the dev and the game looked great. While I don't like the dev much anymore I can recommend the game.

Seriously tho I'm sure this kind of pricing structure must have a negative effect on sales in general on the App Store?! A few years back I'd be buying 3 or 4 games a week on release at a minimum, now its maybe one every couple of weeks, getting less when things like this happen.....
