I have to get this just because Bruce Campbell is part of it... The most under-rated actor in Hollywood, and the king of modern B-movies - can't go wrong with Bruce !

I'm an app-oholic! And there's no 12-step program...

I am getting this because I am a fan of Bruce and the movies, my expectations are not that high though.

Me too, love BC, but for me, my expectations ARE high. AoD looks simply too kool for skool. I've already grabbed the iPhone version, but although I normally hate having to buy a separate iPad app (for non-universal games), on this occasion I think I'll make an exception with no ill feelings!

Price?

The TA article mentions that it will be 99 cents. They also mention that it will have a short introductory sale, but when I go to buy it, it lists at $2.99. What's up with that?
