WTF........I bought ROTK when it came out for my iphone and instead of updating the current one, they release a whole new app at a higher price point? what a bunch of idiots. To any considering buying this game, don't support this dumbass company. Talk about a rip off.

Based on the description, this is the original game ($9.99) with the additional ($3.99) in-app purchase included.

But it is the same price, so this literally makes no sense. If you buy the 9.99 version and then all of the in-app purchases, you will end up paying the exact same price as the price being offered here. There is absolutely no justification for this app to exist.

Worse yet, probably most of the people who are going to buy RotTK purchased the other one when it came out. Perhaps they are hoping to trick some people into buying it twice.

well i think its more for the convenience of those who dont have it yet and want to buy it with all the extra content without having to hassle with first buying the game then downloading the extra stuff

genres are not to be seen as forms of textual codifications, but as systems of orientations, expectations and conventions that circulate between industry, text and subject.

Well, in the app description it says: "...bundled together at a great low price." Going on that, I think there are only three possibilities: KOEI can'd do simple maths, KOEI are hoping we can't do simple maths, or, the current price is a mistake.
