We have released the lite version of Autumn Dynasty on the Apple App store, while the full game will have a temporary price drop to $4.99. Existing owners of the game will also receive a patch that adds two new maps, and some much-awaited gameplay fixes.

It’s going to be almost exactly a year since we launched the paid version of the game, and we’ve since picked up several awards and features—including the Appstore Best of 2012, New Ways to Play and iTunes Benchmark Games pick for Intuitive Controls. Nevertheless, we realise that not everyone has been able to try the game yet, so we’ve decided to offer the first two stages of the Campaign, as well as Bluetooth multiplayer for free. With this universal iOS Lite version, players will be able to battle their friends across different devices, ie, iPad vs iPhone, or iPod Touch.

To thank everyone for their support and encouragement through the past year, we will also be having a giveaway campaign, which unlocks new content for the game as we hit landmark download figures for the Lite version—hopefully this might help folks share the game with their friends too! This will include new maps, difficulty levels, and more.
