This is wrong! i just bought this game for $2.99 a few days ago!

I could have bought 2, maybe 3 lollipops for that!

I didn't even bother with the free trial, I just outright bought it for that price.

Smart move. Get people who may have missed out on the first (like yours truly.) a chance to catch up before the next installment. It"ll be fresh in their minds when the sequel drops.

@videogameninja: You realize you're the only one who finds the whole "ninja approved" schtick humorous? I find it childish and annoying as crap.
