    I'm really liking this new pricing strategy. Rewarding EARLY buyers then raising the price for updates. The old way of selling a game for a lot at first, then lowering price rips off early buyers (we TA readers!). I hope it sticks! And more developers stick to this strategy. I definitely think the games are worth more than a buck! But it's nice to get one cheap now and then.

    I didn't see global high scores added. The update looks great but the one thing that this game is missing is global high scores. It seems like the easiest thing to do. Already have the game and yes, it is one of the best.

    At first I was wondering why it was taking so long for the update when I think two weeks ago, it seemed like it was already prepared, especially with the screenshots they were showing. But now after reading all the new updates, I'm so excited and glad that they made sure everything was fixed and included in this update. I also like the fact that the developers really listen to the players. Good job. One last thing though: you still haven't fixed the reorientation thing for the screen. Allowing the screen to reorient will help us iPod Touch users to have a more comfortable grip with the controls with the headphone jack out of the way.

    I'm curious to what the "reinforcements" are. If they're like creatures that will assist you in beating the monsters, that's awesome! I'll also be looking forward to new bosses in the update (or future updates) just so we're not stuck with Dracula all the time. Maybe add in a huge werewolf, or I don't know.

    But good job guys!!!

    When the update hits do we get it for free or will we have to pay again? I picked this game up yesterday for 99 cents and its a steal at that price.

    Nope. So far all the games give out free updates. You won't have to pay once you already own the game.

    This is hands down one of the best iPhone games out there. the controls are awesome and the gameplay is very fun! :D I am looking forward to the new ways to switch weapons and the perks :D.

    I see collisions in the game from the environments (like monsters not able to run through the middle fountain). It would be awesome if they took this concept one step further and actually built out 2D levels where you would walk from 1 location to the next to move waves or lvls. (like walk through a haunted forest, make it all the way to the castle, walk through the castle to draculas throne room, walk down the stairs in his coffin to a underground dungeon, and basically the 4 or 6 maps they give us are 6 lvls and the game progresses through them.. rather than just a giant open sandbox with nowhere to go except in circles. (which is still fun, its like my last relationship with my X).

    Good work guys. lookin for the update :D

    Anyone else find that, cool as this game is, its an absolute battery killer!
    Not so much the games fault i know, more the way the screen works and how constant multitouch batters it.
    Still, keeps me off this game unless i'm at home.
