I am wondering if we are allowed to mention our web pages in the opening screen of our game(s)?

Is Apple OK with that?

    You probably wont believe this but I have actually never played a game in my life (not counting solitaire the other day when I had to kill 10 hours inside an Airbus 320) so I have no experience on what goes where ....

    Well you picked a very cool fun and possibly profitable last trick to learn.

    I would start playing games, if I were you.

    Otherwise you have no idea, what goes on. You will start to reinvent the wheel again and again.

    At least download some free games on the Iphone and mess around a bit.

    There are unwritten rules and settled behaviors, standard features etc, which are essential for today's games.

    If you don't know them, your customers will be really pissed :-)

    We had no dual stick control for Assault Commando, because the game how we imagined it didn't need it, people still tells us they want dual stick control. Even if it doesn't make any sense there.

    It is another thing to ignore standard features for the sake of design and it is another to ignore them because you don't know them.

    So, really, start playing games if you want to make games.

    Hunn's advice is sound.

    While playing lots of games won't necessarily make you a good designer, it's a definite plus!

    There's a certain 'language' to videogames. A set of rules if you will. Most games follow them, and you have to know them if you're going to break them ;)

    Best of luck - this really is great fun to do! :D

    QS :D
