Fieldrunners HD to be made available soon

Remember that awesome looking tower defense game called Fieldrunners HD that we told you about few days ago? Did you also remember that we said that it would be made available for free too? Well there's been some slight change in plans from the developers. Originally, the developers was supposed to launch the game on the Android Market for free for the first 24 hours and then a $2.99 after that but now that plan has been scapped and instead, the game will be made available for a cheap $0.99 for the first 24 hours and then $2.99 after that. So now you're wondering, what happened to the original plan? Well its because the Android Market doesn't allow you to change the price of a game from a FREE game to a PAID one, so the developers had no choice but to do it this way.

The good news is that because the developers - Subatomic Studios really wanted to release the game for free for the first day anyway, Amazon app store has decided to pick them up and so the game will indeed be made available for free for the first 24 hours when it is launched. The bad news on this is that only US citizens will be able to get this game for free unfortunately and the game will remain exclusive for the Amazon app store for the next two weeks before it lands on the Android Market. The game is still not out yet on either markets of course, as a new release date will be announced soon. Watch this space and stay tuned.
