    Yes it's been five long months and the last 2 we were working on it 7 days a week. @RP and I did everything in this game. @RP art is stellar the game looks great even on iPad 2! The announcers in the game are RP and I and I am the voice of Pucky. We will be adding a new table in the coming months a western themed table and every couple months we will be adding another table and other goodies. This game is updated every month with new voice work and any other goodies we can cram in.

    It was a long road creatively as in the early going we had these ideas and concepts and we're not sure how we were going to make them work together in a seamless way but we just kept working it and it started coming together. Just when we thought we had it done we had the crash issues associated with 10.1 and so in seven day I rebuilt the game in 10.2 and then we had the UDID issues. Oh man it seemed like it was never gonna happen..LOL but whew here we are.

    Thank you all! And to all our beta testers, we had Some sample Tshirts made up and we like the quality so PM me with your size and address as we will be placing an order soon.

    Thanks dudes!

    We were pretty surprised with the quick turn arround since submission.

    I'm sure Pucky must gave had some doing in all of this. Smooth talking or lining pockets, charm and speech +5. Brass knuckles more likley.

    Eeeeeenter theeeee Areeeenaaaaahhhh!

    Awesome, best of luck with the app, I've been following this since I saw the first promo video. Great idea when the shirts too!
  • The_Gamesalad_GuruThe_Gamesalad_Guru Posts: 9,913Member
    Thanks @jonmulcahy we really wanted to show our appreciation to the guys that helped us beta test. They were great an gave us honest feedback and were diligent in reporting bugs in a detailed manner. Beta testing is a very important part of getting ones game solid and we appreciate them all. I'm going to post the list but I don't want to miss anyone as I'm on my iPad and not down on my Mac were I have all the names.

    Also I just like to say. Someone gave it a one star rating my suspicion is it's someone on the forums who has a grudge against me. I just thought It's important to understand it's okay if you don't like me but this is my business and how I make my living. It may be funny to someone who maybe at this point in their life has parents to pay the bills. I have a wife and children to care for house and feed. Stunts like this punish my children by proxy. So to that person you potentially took food, clothing et from my family. I just wanted you to know that. I hope you sleep well tonight.

    Hey FBS i wouldn't let it get to you m8 1 star reviews are inevitable although it does piss you off when they 1 star without a valid reason.

    I got 23 1 stars for Bumps but it still made it to #17 in the US overall although most of the bad reviews came when i made it free for a while.

    It's so easy to laugh
    It's so easy to hate
    It takes guts to be gentle and kind

  • dwibredwibre Posts: 192Member
    Would not worry too much about 1star reviews. Most people dont even bother reading them and I would never read reviews for a free download!! I would just download it and make up my own mind. Anyway over the weekend I will get you a few uk 5stars
  • BoomshackBarryBoomshackBarry Posts: 712Member
    It sure is frustrating when things like this happen though. I mean unless your game has literately no creative or artistic merit whatsoever, and as long as you haven't promised something in particular and then not delivered it, then a 1 star rating is absolutely not warranted, it's an irrational and immature reaction to a game or app that may not be to somebodies particular taste, but that app still took time and effort to create. Honestly things like this drive me crazy, it's like when you sell something on ebay and the buyer leaves you negative feedback instantly just because they changed their mind and didn't want it after all.

    Sorry about that, rant over! Great looking game though FBS I'll be sure to grab a copy :)

    Why not check out my development blog?

    The game looks great! Will download now and leave a five star review.

    Thank you all for your kind words. I'm not worried I know the game speaks for itself and I also know it's not the next best thing since cracker But I wanted to post that so people would think before they do something out of spite. I guess I just expect higher moral standards from people but I know that is not reality. I don't expect anyone to rate the game higher than they feel it deserves but I expect people to be fair. I would never even think to sabotage anyone's business even if I hated them which I find hate a waste of energy. It just seems thoughtless and I just wanted to bring some thought into it. If they really didn't like it I'm down with that but a short time after I posted here I see a one star is a bit suspicious. Makes one not want to share their game with the community if this is the thanks one Carry On!

    Woohoo! Excited for y'all! It was such a fabulous game in testing, I can only imagine what it is now. Congrats on getting your first game out there!

    One star reviews are inevitable, really. You always that those people who hate the game or creator for some odd reason. Don't let it get to you. Keep pushing on and creating fantastic games.

    Don't worry about that bubaloo, the game is in free territory. Anything goes with those reviews.

    Makes you wonder how much they got out of the game just to review it as such. Makes me feel good knowing I made them go through the effort of downloading it and having to log into iTunes to leave a review. Any waste of their time and the required level of effort into such a task is a win!

    Downloading now!!! I know how much hard work went into this one guys, and I've been really impressed with your trailers and gameplay demos. Don't waste your time worrying about 1 star reviews. I'm sure this game will be flooded with 5 star reviews by the end of the weekend anyway. I'll be sure an leave one shortly...that is if I can put the game down for a few minutes to write a review :) Best of luck with it!

    Just started playing and it is very cool. For clarity, if I upgrade to the pro version does that also remove ads, or do I need to do each one? Not a big deal, just wondering.

    Cool game!

    In the Pro Shop, there is an option for No Ads. If you buy that all the ads are gone.
    The other IAP is the special events control. They are two separate items. More items will be entering the Pro Shop IAP later.

    Heads up guys. May have found a critical bug/error. If you tap on purchase special events it says ERROR: PICE.
