This game got an accompanying update with it...by the update description with the price drop, I'm putting a bet on this turning freemium :|

I thought it was a bit too freemium sounding to begin with since it relied on consumable currency that could be bought. Like FF All The Bravest seemed freemium at launch.

Well, you thought wrong. I finished the game spending nothing but for the entry fee. You gain a fair amount of premium currency as you play along, and the items you pick up in the game later on in the game, are so much stronger than the premium-only-priced weapons.

All the Bravest was designed to be freemium. Just like Theatrhythm, the game's a demo until you start spending cash, but it doesnt end there.

Bloodmasque is more of a premium, but with optional IAPs in it. Similar to how Dead Space, Deus Ex, EPOCH., H&C and NYZombies 2 are designed.

It's a well-made Infinity Blade-esque game, with enough features and character customization options to make it unique, and of course, the gimmick of having your character have your face.

Now that it's free, i suggest picking it up and testing it out. It's actually a very good game, one of the few IB clones that does it right.

Thanks for the serious reply. I'm more than happy to be wrong. It's just I see a game with a $59.99 IAP for currency and requiring an always online connection and I think the worst. I'll add it to the backlog. I know my iphone though is so flaky now with big games and the wifi chip issue I won't be able to try it until after I get my 5S.
