Pricing for Beast Flyers? (Aerial platformer with cool creature physics)

Hello people,
we are about to release our next game(target submission date is end of April).
I am wondering what price we should pitch this game at($0.99, $1.99, $2.99 etc.)
I figured this forum might be a good place to ask the question since you guys are probably the experts. This is an indie game made by 2 people on their weekends.

Here is a beta(very rough version) of the game:

I appreciate all your comments and would like some idea of how much we should price this. The game is an aerial platformer with a variety of creatures and bosses, a whole bunch of weapon types, a story campaign as well as leaderboards + achievements via OpenFeint. The feedback from this forum will be taken into consideration as we approach the submission date...

thank you for your time in reading this post,
Developers of Beast Flyers!

This goes into "Upcoming game"
Looks very good, maybe update the art of some buttons a little...
I'd price it at 2.99

Make it freemium. One dollar for one minute of play. But you get 3 seconds a day for free. Naw one dollar 99 cents sounds like a good start price

i say go 1.99 and go from there. hard to put a price on it how many levels? dose it have leader boards, re playability?

one thing is if you start at .99 hard to go up from there..

if you start high you can always go down if need be.

I reckon it depends how many levels there are...

But either 1.99 or 2.99 you could get away with.
