Slydris - Radiangames (FREE for August 6th, 2013 Only)

The title says it all. Slydris is a sorta-Tetris-like game (but not really) that was GameTrailer.com's iOS game of the year for 2012. Normally $1.99.

Get it here:
https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/slydris/id509213094?mt=8

(It's also Amazon's Free App of the Day if you have a Kindle)

Looks like this will hit at 11 p.m. EST.

An FYI to those with Android devices, this is currently free on Amazon's App Store as it's free app of the day.

On the web page it says free, but in the store it says $1.99. I guess I wait....

Here in PH it shows as $1.99 still, and it's an hour left for it to hit August 7th.

Dev said August 6th (six hours left here). I wish that would be clearer. Hard to handle. When I click the link then the iTunes webpage opens with "Gratis" (Free) but the iTunes app wants €1.79.

Otherwise the game is very recommended! I bought it Dec./'12 and enjoyed it very much.

It was free when I posted my comment (following the link provided). Wonder if this is the app of the week. Though I think that goes free (well, you can find out it will be going free) mid-late Wednesday.

Don't know why it's having problems being free. To simplify things for iTunes and hopefully force it to work, I just changed it to be Free (forever), and will change it back to $1.99 tomorrow (~20 hours from now).
