I've played 10+ games from Big Fish now, and not paid for any of them - they keep offering them for free. I'm starting to feel obliged to actually buy a game from them...

The game is worthy to play let alone to get for free. Grab it while the offer is still good.

.....and thanks for posting!

Wow that,s a lot of mb.
I am going to install it directly on my computer itunes folder so I can play it later when I have more room.
Thanks mrbiggles for the post!

iTunes Log In?

I downloaded this and started playing it yesterday. Don't want to spoil anything, but after a specific cut scene when you meet someone, up pops an iTunes Store login. I cancel it, since I didn't try to purchase anything, then the game goes back to the title screen.

There don't appear to be any IAPs in this game, but never seen a game prompt a login to the iTunes Store unless you were trying to purchase IAP. A little hesitant to actually login.

This happen to anyone else or anyone know why a game (or app) would want a user to log into iTunes?

EDIT:

I decided to sign in then it wanted me to download their Big Fish Games app in order to unlock the rest of the game. I did download it, didn't see a way to unlock from the Big Fish App, but next time I launched this game it continued onward.

So while it may be free, you have to download an additional app to really get the full game. Not that familiar with BF games, so maybe this is the norm.

I've been into it a bit and haven't had any iTunes log-in popup show. But then I have the BF app already installed. Not sure if that's the reason for a no show on the log-in.
I normally play without an internet connection so pop-ups to rate won't launch or any other annoyances but this game its been on a few times.
