I'm plugging our two first games. They are fun and Attack of Killer Mushrooms is similar to a game on Android that has a ton of downloads but ours does not. Feedback would be great. What are people doing to boost downloads?

Both games were developed with a hand full of developers working part time and put out in lest than a month. 

We are working on a new game with 10 developers part time that is a very unique idea. Ill be glad to share when we can. I just dove into the Facebook end and that is turning out to be rough. Anyone have any luck with that? Creating a leader board is the most difficult.

Games are on both Android and iOS

Man vs Asteroid

hey Ryan, thanks for posting. its good to read about the development details. I checked out the game links.

here's some of my thoughts just based on first impressions, this might help you get more downloads. 

- the icon for Attack of killer Mushrooms is quite interesting, but Man Vs Asteroid looks quite plane. give it more action.

- the first screenshots are of the menu which doesn't look interesting. also the other screenshots look a little plain too. Add more interesting text / items around the borders. The icon and screenshots are really the most important art work to getting the download, really, really.

- the names of the games probably have a lot of competition. if you search for 'attack' or 'space' see how many results appear. Also you can add more keywords in the title to appear more in searches.

hope this helps [smile]

by the way, please post the game images in your original post and perhaps a screenshot of the downloads if you can. it just helps people get a quick idea and respond quickly.

all the best
Martin

Martin. Thanks for all the input. I will keep the forum posted with any new games we release. We have a slightly larger scaled one we are working on now that should be released in about two months and then we are going to cut back to our 4 to 6 we development cycle again. We just posted a trailer for our first game so hopefully that helps drive downloads.

hey Ryan, cool, looking forward to seeing the new game.

Thanks for posting the trailer as well. Did you see an increase in downloads after you posted it? I'm interested to know because we're also experimenting with this too. For example, we'll remove some of the trailers from our games on google play and see if that effects downloads. Some of our trailers are ok but I think if a trailer isn't awesome then don't add it to the game description. We have some games where the screenshots give a better impression than the trailer so it's better just to show them and not the trailer.
