I figured this would eventually go free since it's a runner with iap. Guess it's time to check it out.

highly recommended. Fantastic runner. Since it's FDG I'm sure there will be no ads in my paid version.

Not really interested actually. But since it's free...

I barely even touch Tiny Thief, last week purchase.

Hmm, something funky is going on as it was free for several hours and FDG Entertainment said it would be free for 24 hours on their twitter feed. Check back in a bit as I'm sure it's just something wonky and will be fixed quick. Maybe FDG pressed the wrong time button for the sale end. Once they see what's happened, it'll be back to free, I'm sure.

It showed as free when I looked earlier when I posted.

Not sure if it's going free permanently, but it's not like the game fell off the charts or anything. It was still in the top 20 paid games when I checked this weekend after all these months. It's a fun runner in any case.

Nope, only free for 24 hours. Looks like the earlier problem has been fixed and it's back to free.

Edit: FDG Entertainment just confirmed on Facebook that the app store appears to be having some problems, and the price fluctuation is beyond their control. They set it to free, for 24 hours, and hopefully it will stick there soon. Frustrating for them and us! If you see it at 99c, try again in a bit.
