Hi I'm really excited to show you guys my newest game, Bow Assassin. I released it for Amazon first to hopefully get some feedback and make an even more polished improved version before releasing for iOS. If you have a Kindle Fire or other Android device please try it out and let me know what you think, thanks!

    That looks pretty cool. Nice animations on the enemies when they get hit with an arrow. Hope it does well for you.

    I have no friends. I'm a loser that makes video games all day. Will you be my friend?

    I like the level of detail you've taken with this - the character animations are great.

    @Crazybreadman Any plan to release for iTunes? I searched but not able to find.
  • CrazybreadmanCrazybreadman Posts: 674Member
    Thanks everybody :)
    @creativeapps - I will release for iPhone and iPad soon but I wanted to get feedback on Amazon and add some more content as well. It won't be very long though and I'll post when it's on iTunes for sure.

    @patapple - I'll post how rank/sales are doing a bit later. It was released today so I don't think many apps get lots of sales w/out marketing on day one. It hasn't appeared on the new release list yet so once it does the sales will start. With my other app Duck Shot sales have been great. It's broken 6k sales on Amazon and only been out for less than 2 months.

    I've been waiting for this release ever since you posted the WIP. Love it! Great job! Looking forward to the iOS release! I especially like the way you have the moving
    masked background on the level chooser.

    I just want to thank everyone for their support so far. Bow Assassin is off to a great start. It's listed #4 in the Movers and Shakers list at the moment. It went from being unranked as a new release yesterday to #311 overall so far today. Here's hoping it hits the top 100 soon!

  • ZoytZoyt Posts: 374Member
    Wow! Great results!
  • patapplepatapple Posts: 873Member
    @Crazybreadman cool man! Any fisical number?? :D

    @patapple - Bow Assassin is getting a good start similar to my other successful app (Duck Shot) on Amazon. It sold 9 the first day and 34 the second day (yesterday). It hopefully will have the momentum to reach the top 100 bestsellers list in the next couple days. It's at #222 overall apps now. I have two apps on Amazon that did like 10-15 downloads a day their first week but that was only enough to get rank #300-#400 overall. They didn't get a solid start and once they left the new release list were dead. It doesn't take a ton of downloads to get a good start on Amazon but it's super critical because the app's visibility on the new release list is vital. The new releases list is based on rank against all other new releases in the past 7 days, so the higher you can get it in that list on day 1 and 2 will make or break your app.

    Hi everyone, just an update... it's been doing fairly well so far. If you bought it, thanks so much for your support and I hope you've enjoyed playing Bow Assassin! It needs a bump to get into the top 100 though, and has been floating around #160-220 on the charts. If you have an android device please check out Bow Assassin today and help it make the top 100 list :)

  • Braydon_SFXBraydon_SFX Posts: 8,959Member, Sous Chef, PRO, Bowlboy Sidekick GameSalad Employee
    Yeah man, saw it was at 200 something earlier and now it's back to 115! Go!
  • CrazybreadmanCrazybreadman Posts: 674Member
    @Stran - thanks man, I appreciate the kind words. I really had a lot of fun creating the animations.

    btw, it's at 107 overall and 89 in games now... the highest it's ever been :)

    Victory! It just hit #100 overall apps. This was quite unexpected as it was selling about 20-30 a day and suddenly sold 90 yesterday. It reached just shy of the top 100 during it's release week, but this is the highest rank it's achieved so far.
  • CrazybreadmanCrazybreadman Posts: 674Member
    Oooh, I found out why it shot up the ranks. It's actually a "Featured New Games" on the kindle store! There a few different groups of featured apps it cycles through, but mine is the one with Gameloft's "Monster Life" and "Call of Mini:Zombies." It appears on the top banner on the device when you open the store... cool!!!

    So Bow Assassin is today's "Free App of the Day" on Amazon. It's currently #1 on the free apps list. So far today it's received 80k downloads. If you wanted to try it then today is the day to get it! As expected there's quite a few 1 star reviews that apps get when they cater to the free app crowd (many complaints about network access "permissions" that GS automatically includes), but if you like it and could leave an honest review for me then that would be great. Thanks!
