Amazon: Hidden Expedition...What's happening?

Hi guys!
I bought two days ago the game and today, for the first time, i wanted to try it. The game crashes at the very start, so i thought that maybe on its page on the Store i could find some infos on this issue. Surprise! The game is (only at the moment i hope) no more available on the Store.
Can you give me some explanation for this?
Thanks!

Was pulled because the update / new version, released 2 or 3 days ago, has a crash bug at the beginning. Should be up again in a few days.

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

No prob - I knew because I downloaded the update and also had a crash.
But this fix should be easy and the game online again soon.
It's one of the best hidden object games, I can tell you.

They even updated their page:

I'm expecting a crash each time I play but so far I've not experienced any probs even without an update. This is a really (really) a very nice hidden objects game and highly recommend getting it. Even while waiting on an update.

If anyone is interested, might want try Everest: Hidden Expedition

You asked yesterday!
Give Apple a few days to approve the update.

Sorry, my fault, was answering to the guy that's playing with it and says he has no problems at all.

Oh, I am also sorry, I got you wrong.

So - what do you all say - it looks like it just went on sale for $1.99, but a bunch of the reviews here and on iTunes talk about it crashing or objects that can't be found. This thread hasn't been updated in a few weeks, so curious if you've found it to be as glitchy as reported?
