FREE & FULL version of Big Fun Racing

Just wanted to send note that the full version of good ol' Big Fun Racing will be released as FREE version in the US App Store very soon (and ONLY in the US for now). The game has been submitted over a week ago and I await the final approval now every day.

The whole release is a big test to test new waters. The game will have a pre-roll ad video (very short, skippable) right at the game's start and then no further ads in the game. So basically once passed the first 5 seconds of the video you can play the full game for free. Will be interesting to see if ppl like this way to get apps for free. As said, a big experiment. :-)

This is the iTunes URL once it is approved: http://phobos.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=326819130&mt=8

Looks great. Would have easily made it into my wishlist @99cents. Insta buy for sure@ 0.00$ though.

I hope this experiment gets huge success so that we can get more free games.

Forgot: If the experiment goes well also for the ad publisher, this model gets expanded also to outer US, so europe, asia and all other counties. Oh well, interesting times with the iPhone, the market changes every day. :-)

I bought it way back when it was $1.99 and liked it enough to play from start to finish

Hope this enables Decane to put out more games, good luck Morti.
