Wow, didn't expect this. Hopefully it's not because of poor sales. But I'm afraid that's most likely the case...

Hi guys, one of the SXPD devs here.

I cannot comment on the sales, but this 24 hour free day, is mostly to create buzz in anticipation for the iphone/universal launch which is coming up.

And yes the appstore is a very competitive place at the moment, I expect this to happen more often, more free sale days earlier. Its one of the few promotional events that still have the power to improve the visibility of the app to a large audience.

I would say get on ipad now, so you also get the iphone version for free when its updated. Enjoy the game and hopefully stay tuned for future additions.

Love the look and the concept of this game, but it's too twitchy for me. Maybe I'm just too old. I'll try again with reading glasses :-P

Just missed it as it's no longer free.
