    Maybe because "the game is cool and everybody likes it" ?

    It's also, I would imagine, made a fair few quid for Apple. It's in their interest to keep pushing it.

    Yeah, I bet 90% of Apple would agree there are far more "fun" or "better" games out there but doing this is a win-win situation for Apple. Apple wins because it sells (and has sold) the most, and the customers (players) love the game. No reason they won't push it even more..

    Well, I would..

    :D

    Anyone know of any ways to get your app noticed for being featured or is it something they find themselves and decide?

    @fallacystudios Check out the benchmark games banner at the AppStore now and u'll get an idea

    @FallacyStudios

    It is both. First of all you have to have a good game. But it is sometimes not enough.
    I know if your game gets reviewed or featured on popular blogs or forums etc. (like touch arcade) Apple will most probably give you a front page seat. But again, sometimes having a good game enough.

  • FallacyStudiosFallacyStudios Posts: 970Member
    Well I guess I'll have to bug those blogs and forums to give my game in the works an excellent review won't. Time to look for blackmailing material ;p jk

    Angry Birds Gets Featured Because it makes Lots of money. Apple Features Apps they thing other users will buy lots of. You need to have a good game and convince some of the bigger sites like TA to do a review. If TA likes it you have a good shot at a Good Feature. And if you want the Angry Birds treatment. Your first feature prob needs to make Lots and Lots of Sales.

    It's not my fault I never learned to take responsibility for anything. ;)
