Thanks for the notification. But I wonder why?

Is the game (series, rather) not as successful as it once was?

Edit: Merp, just saw the text on the picture. Guess they went freemium. Good for them. They had a nice long run with the original game and I know there are people still in support of them that are willing to buy extra content (plus they got that Facebook game, merchandise, the comics and Uranus).

Hope they do well on their "runs" game.

My problem was never not wanting to pay $.99 for this. It was the massive file size. I just didn't want 350+ MB of space uncompressed used up for an endless jumper.

So unless something changed with that, the switch to freemium certainly isn't going to change my thoughts about downloading it.

The dev said customers who paid for the game shouldn't get any ads.

Oh well - another one. I paid for it then deleted it to come back to later. Hopefully no ads when I re-install. Why not just release a free one and not tinker with what people have bought? If it wasn't successful maybes it is time to try something else.
