While I'm actually a pretty big fan of Alchemize, this looks like a REALLY CHEAP PLOY if I get it right.

This is not the full game, right? Just a FREE LITE DEMO version, hence the "Alchemize Mini".

Everything in the description refers to the full game and the only clue you're likely pulling something is the very small "Mini" in the title of the first post as if hoping nobody will catch that and you then can claim, "What, didn't you see the 'Mini' there?"

Please clarify, Schiau Studios, and if not willing to discuss this any further I'll already have my answer.

In fact, Apple seemingly is restructuring iTunes and the App Store :: sigh :: again and many of the app's pages aren't loading correctly including this one's. Any other US iPhoners/itouchers having similar issues?

The link works for me in the new format -

Full: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/id324494977?mt=8
Mini: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/id336143296?mt=8

The mini's description in the app store adds:

In app purchase features unlock:
Ipod Music
Classic Game Mode
Action Game Mode
Avalanche Game Mode

=====
So my question is - what is IN the mini? Just Blitz?

I've found this true for Alchemize Mini, Red Conquest, and Dungeon Defense (which sux cuz it just went on sale 70% off!). Anyone else having this problem and/or should I fork this into a new thread?

It could be just appstore acting up. It's been on and off that way in the past week for me. Sometimes you have to try a few times before it would start to download.
