So here's the catch: what you download for free is a demo. You get at least 5 minutes of gameplay out of that before you have to pay for the full game

$1 for the full game, and a couple of "support the studio" IAPs: $3 for the game and wallpapers, and $5 for the game, wallpapers and soundtrack.

Yes, there is the standard "restore purchases" option.
