Goo doing better than Bumps

Red Ball of Goo (Red Balls of Goo iPad) is set to overtake Bumps as our most successful game to date and will soon reach 15k sales since release 2 weeks ago.

Since it came off the front page on Thursday it has remained at a solid #36 in games in the US (Bumps dropped out of the charts within 24 hours after coming off the front of the store).

Long live the Goo.

    Congrats!

    Not to be a debby downer, but despite sales of Adventures of Papa Wheelie dropping off big time after being off N&N its rank has not changed at all. My new game Angry Zombie Lanuch (shameless I know!) has "no data" for rankings according to appfigures even though it is making around $100 a day. I think something is up with the rankings in the US store right now. Adventures of Papa Wheelie should have dropped big time just like its sales but it's ranking hasn't changed a single spot in three days or so. So I think that there is a bug in the iTunes ranking system in the US store.

    That could explain why it hasn't moved from 36 :)

    This might be why the ranks are frozen

    I blame it on your programing skills, graphic design and sounds!

    Ranks just unfroze and this isn't even in the top 100 games anymore :(

    Still, great job! I bought it and i love it, I just beat it yesterday. Hope to see more levels soon

    Are sales still going good?
  • UtopianGamesUtopianGames Member Posts: 5,687
    Yeah #125 iPhone..iPad has gone up from 99 to 89 so not all bad.

    1.1 will be out any day now and you will have 10 new levels to play along with the bug fix and new music etc.

    Thats awesome! Cant wait for the update

    I noticed a small bug where if the goo goes too far offscreen, it doesn't show up anymore when the level restarts. Is that fixed?
  • UtopianGamesUtopianGames Member Posts: 5,687
    Yes m8 that is fixed :) after testing 100 deaths i couldn't lose the Goo so all good :)

    Wow. Fantastic job.

    Please tell me you didn't make it in a day?! I'm assuming this is a joke?

    Gamesaladers are making some serious money....
