Nice! I was planning on buying this in 2 weeks. Lite was a blast! Now to hope Gameloft's "free game a day" thing will get me Asphalt 5 and Gangstar!

I'd check and make sure it's free before u click it, App Miner had this app listed as free on Friday night, I clicked it, not realizing they were wrong and it was actually 3 bucks. Clever little plot to snatch a few people not paying attention's 3 bucks

I'm the dev and have nothing to do with App Miner or their mistakes. The game has free since Sunday afternoon and it's the first time it's been free since Sept 2008.

Apps: Mech Pilot, Zombies HD, Zombies The Last Stand, iFishing (and all spinoffs), Puppet Jump, Pocket Farm, Dark Raider, Blue Skies, and more! (www.RockingPocketGames.com)
