All of you may have been familiar with 7 Second Arcade that came out awhile back. It was a medley of minigames much like Wario Ware. Needless to say, I spent months programming it, and it BOMBED.

I advertised, promoted, ran contests giving away itunes gift cards, youtube, facebook, twitter, the whole nine yards, and it didn't just do lukewarm or fair, it did TERRIBLY!

I think the name "7 Second Arcade" turned people off because it gave the impression that the game would be short and not worth their time or $.

So, I had thought at the time, I should pull it and rename it with a new icon, but I was already running contests, and didn't want to disappoint those who had entered.

At any rate, I polished it up, new title screen and icon, and trying one last time to get this puppy out there!

**I did put a disclaimer on the prior version that they will receive the same updates and to not purchase this one. I will be placing disclaimers on both versions to alert consumers**

Some of you may not agree with this, and I completely respect that, but after spending months or promoting and trying to sell this, it was a bomb for sure (no pun intended with the icon :)

So I'm asking for your help to take a moment and review it, I'd really appreciate it! Hoping this time proves to be successful, and if it fails, at least I know I gave it another go.

I wouldn't normally do this unless I really felt the game deserved a bit more than it received. For cryin' out loud, some of my little toddler apps fared better than this one.

I poured my blood, sweat, and tears into this game, and at the time was working full time as an RN. It has over 50 minigames with 3 unlockable mini-games you can replay to beat your high score.

I'm not saying this game is the best of the best, or the cream of the crop, but the sales for it were pitiful, and I think the new title will hopefully give buyers a better idea of what they're getting.

Appreciate your time! :))

    I took MTKNKLFFNJWF - left a review mate :D

    Good luck with it - I know you were disappointed with how it initially did, but you should be proud of what you've made anyway ;)

    QS :D

    Awesome game man!! I took FNK6JPHWAPXH, I will review in a bit. I also have a question, yesterday you left a review for my game Farm Showdown!, what device were you running it on and how well did it play? Once again, awesome game!

    Thanks Artonskyblue!

    I did notice some slowdown between each level and loading the first one....

    Usually the biggest culprit in bogged down load times is large music files, how many minutes is that one music file you have loaded on there, and if so, how do you have it running? Does it continue to play throughout the game, or does it reload between levels?

    I'm using an iphone 3G by the way

    Thanks for the review!

    Ok that really helped me alot, thanks! I just reduced the RAM size
    by 20-30MB so by the next update next week it should be running very smoothly.
    Anyways, I've been playing your game almost the whole day now, very nice idea and
    really kept me and my friends entertained, and I told them to get it too! :-)
