Link to the main thread which doesn't tell you that it's free in the title.

Quite generous, I suppose the developer wants it to climb the charts a bit - and it will!

I'm hoping to see this kind of gaming come the iPad natively, we'll see.

thanks for sharing, great find

I'm SOOO glad I decided not to buy this when it came out, I haven't gotten a good free game in a LONG time! Usually I'm too impatient to ever wait for sales and just buy everything at full price, so I think I deserve this one good free game

I'd been a little curious of this game. Being free I've d/l'ed and played a few rounds with a couple wizards (or was one a witch?). Controls work well and plenty of upgrades, etc to add-on later into the game.
Not a bad game and keeping it for some more future plays.

Yeah, this is one of the very few new games I bought. So you can thank me that it's free now.

Both games are very good

I have both Solomon's Keep and now Boneyard. Both of these games were well worth the $0.99. From my experience with the original I can say that there will be a lot of updates. While I would have loved to get it for free I was happy to pay the $0.99.

For those who have played the first but not Boneyard...

Gameplay is near identical. The developer has slimmed down a lot of the content. It is a single level. You play and level up until you die and then start right from 0 again. There are perks you can unlock to make you tougher when you start. There are 3 unlockable charatcters and a pile of upgrades to be had. It is basically a survival mode game that stays true to the original. Even the humour is the same.
