It's not a bad game, though. In fact, I thoroughly enjoyed it when I bought it for $0.99 a year ago.

Not worth free

If something online is free, you are not the customer - you are the product.

While not exactly perfect, this game is by no means unworthy of the free price tag. I payed 1.79 for it (or maybe 0.59), and it was worth the price, so I'd recommend downloading it for free - you'd be crazy not to.

Hopefully this is a sign that their upcoming 'CJS 2' (full 3D) is near. Anyone got any news on that?
