Yipe! 5 FREE Lite version available!

March 11, 2010

After a bit of a delay due to that whole “demo” thing… Yipe! 5 Lite is available in the app store!  You can now pick up your FREE copy of Yipe! 5.  I’ve added in-app purchasing as well, so you can unlock the full game and continue playing with your saved characters.  You can also purchase a couple other new add-ons, like additional save slots and a 10 pack of heals for your character.

Here’s the itunes link:

To all Yipe! loyal fans, I still encourage you to download the free one if you already have the full version!  It will help me get more attention to the app!

Oh… and don’t forget the SF release party!  Two days away!
