This is going to be great!

First game: Rope n' Fly -- have never tried it, so I appreciate the freebie.

Not bad! HTML code could use a little compatibility check (looks slightly off in Firefox) and you should mention that the code to confirm notification signup is case-sensitive, but otherwise it's looking good.

Great, I've been wanting to try out Rope 'n' Fly!

Awww... You're not supposed to give away games I already own. You really should check with me in the future. ...Or is it that I'm not supposed to buy games that you're going to give away? Hmmm...
Either way, you should really tell me in advance what games you're going to post. ...Right? ...please?

Rope'n'Fly, though: Silly, brain-free fun. And strangely compelling.
From this game I have learned that if you are not Spiderman it is a bad idea to try to emulate Spiderman. You will die. And you will end up in many pieces. It's messy. No open-casket funeral for you.

Can someone clear something up for me...

The Rope'n'Fly logo shown on the freeappaday.com website shows it with an OpenFeint logo on the corner, and the description for the game on the freeappaday.com website mentions "integrated offline personal highscore using OpenFeint".

However, the Rope'n'Fly logo shown on the AppStore does NOT show the OpenFeint logo, NOR does it mention anything about OpenFeint integration on the AppStore.
I notice though that there is a Rope'n'Fly version 2 (which DOES feature OpenFeint), even though the game given away appears to be version 1.

So are the OpenFeint claims on the freeappaday.com website bogus? Have they confused version 1 with version 2?

thank you!
A quick note on your italian tweets - automated translators are really, really bad. It's almost impossible to actually understand what the resulting text is about.

^ The actual screenshot they used is also from the sequel, not the gipped, abandoned original that they're now giving away for free to promote the sequel.
