  1. i think the cross promo thing that FRVR did might be useful if you want drive more traffic to the appstore. i mean the appstore is a messy place and the only visibility you get is if you drive enough traffic there yourself or paying loads and loads on advertising to get your users and this is only valuable if you're one of the big players. but like i read you only convert users that are recurrent which makes sense. so you can see beforehand if it makes sense or not if you use any kind of analytics @dimanux you said you tried some ad networks which havent been to useful in the past. do you serve your ads directly through admob?
  2. I dont know of any. People reported that MarketJS is only promoting their own games, am i right? As for CodeCanyon, i think its a great place to offer scripts or simple templates but not for complete well made games, but personal opinion here. You could also get in touch with a member that has contacts and doing well, offer him a reasonable share and outsource the business stuff. I havent made any html5 related business for a while so please take my advice with caution.
  3. I just want to throw in Discord as it allows to create a server for free and fits most needs. Personally i use it quite alot as text chat and also as alternativ solution to Skype/TS3. It works well and im pretty happy so far. The down thing is that you cant host your server yourself which makes it third party dependent, but in return you dont have to pay for and can customize your servers to fit your needs. Another plus is that it runs on Win, Mac, Linux, Android, IOs and got a Browser solution too.
  4. working game link He just bound the wrong URL into. lovely graphics and cool serious game concept. missing some UI elements but overall great job!
  5. exactly that. just have one single conversation without being rude, offended or harassing people. take your own advice.
  6. polishing is all about how your game feels. so just think about how you can add value to your game after all core mechanics got finished. like think of a nice game scene where you walk through a forest and you dont hear any birds nor leafs that rustle in the wind, pretty lame so add it to polish it up! also art can be polished to look better or more eye friendly. here are some sources that might help you improve how your game feels. hope you can learn a thing or two.

  7. you should contact them about this issue and make clear that they have to pay license fees when they use your game. also make sure to change the link to your game so if they just bound in the url they get a dead link now. if they just use your url you could also add ads to your game and use their traffic but i would stick to force them to pay license fees.
  8. The editor is awesome although it took a some time to figure out how everything is working i had alot of fun. For the next game that uses some fancy particles i will definitly try to use Neutrino Particles, hopefully i can build a plugin for Construct 2. Keep up the good work!
  9. this looks impressive, i will try to find some time this week and give it a try. thanks for sharing
  10. If you have a design with white font on black background, please consider that there are some people who cant read contrasty things for to long if they are that way. I would be pleased if you could add an option to load another CSS files with brighter background and some darker font. (im sun sensitive so it feels like looking into the sun or a lamp)
  11. Sounds promising, its a niche that isnt well present on PC but the requests are high. Wish you the best.
  12. First of all, never ever trust a third party system to 100%! always do a backup and even if it would be your own system, just do another backup, just in case. Other then that, just try to contact them about the issue and ask if they have some backup for you normally such systems run a backup every now and then, maybe they updated their system and this issue happen afterwards. just try and cross fingers that you get your hard work back. wish you the best dude!
  13. If you want something that last for a while i would suggest Nvidia's Shield K1, Xiaomi's miPad or Lenovo's Yoga Tablet 2. All Three are around $200 maybe a bit less but prices differ depending where you live. They are Top-notch for their pricefield and equally if not slightly better then Samsung's Galaxy Tab S. Look into them and find the best price possible. I think you may find what you seek. Hope this helps
  14. Get Ready~ Fight!! The only limitation i can think of is the fact that you just cant edit the core of GMS or Construct. But! you can just make plugins to enhance your Experience and upgrade your Toolset. I quite doubt that this is a hugh limitation since you wouldnt touch the perfect balanced core of Phaser either. And if you use your own plugins you have to hack into code, so its coding like using Phaser. In my personal Opinion, this Frameworks are pretty much equally. Whether its Debugging, Creation Comfort/Speed or Toolsets. They have their Strengths and some weaknesses which you can most likely Overcome with Knowledge. And thats the Key to all this polished Games wether they are made with Phaser or Construct 2 or GMS. If you have the Knowledge, you can make it without facing any hugh Limitations. That said, i Believe that if you make a Quality Game. You will still use the same amount of Work, Knowledge, Sweat, not at the same Processes but in the whole Project together. Regardless of which Framework you have chosen, since all of this Three have advanced thus far. So if it fits your needs and come in handy, its the right Choice Personally i use Construct 2, because it fits my needs and its a fun way to Create Content. But i spend quite a while optimzing and polishing my Skills to use this Framework on an effective Level. Maybe its also the Reason im sticking with Construct since i spend quite some Time learning all this Just my 2 cents but i guess i got some points right.
  15. while Phaser is highly performant on mobile, Construct 2 offers a really comfortable way to make games for various platforms. If you learn how to build Construct 2 games in an optimized way (including how to make plugins), there wont be any issue making performant games even for mobile. however, if you have a complex game that needs to run smoothly at many different mobile systems i would always recommend Phaser. i take a break this year and make a desktop game to polish my skills and get some time to relax. i will use Construct 2 for its comfortably and my expierence with the program. i also thought about unity but it doesnt feel right to me for this kind of project. so its basicly up to anyone what to use to make games, everything has its own pro and cons and everyone has different strengths.
  16. would love to try but there is no other player at the moment. you should maybe add some simple bots to make it playable even when you are alone. also besides the quick join function, which i think is an excellent idea, there should be a room list. and for the icing on the cake, just add some screenshots here of actual gameplay. a topic is always much more attractive that way
  17. i agree with the coin issue. the game is still very neat and quite polished. i noticed some issues were the character wont jump every time but well its just like the good old super mario games would have loved to jump with the spacebar as option for pc gamers. the difficulty was entertaining but could be quite hard for casual gamers. never the less its a nicely done game. reminds me of a tower climber i did for a one button competition. if i ever come across another one button challenge i would attempt your concept for sure
  18. if he agrees to pay enough to satisfy you and get exclusive rights for the appstore thats cool for both. if he pays a nice price but not enough to gain exclusive rights just sell him non-exclusive rights for the appstore like always. the amount you charge is always up to you but like you mentioned, exclusive rights are always significantly higher. just gamble a bit and negotiate until both of you agree so lets say for a non-exclusive you would charge half of what you would charge if you sell a non-exlcusive for a portal on top of that. so for a exclusive license that isnt exclusive for portals anymore but would be exclusive for appstores, why not charge at least double the amount the non-exclusive would be worth? just my personal opinion, i think you could even go higher but as always its based on the sponsor. if they got the resources to make decent money on the appstore they are willing to pay more
  19. its always one up for the ipod, so the ipod touch 5 is basicly more a iphone 4 and so on.
  20. well its true that we are missing tons of numbers but you also cant say its not true making this revenue at this point. having some good ad deals, a fair rev share, some promo and millions of play (that softgames can provide for sure) you can make a good amount of money. but my questions are: if you also give a rev share how much do you pay as a "fixed fee"? do you gave any promo to this trial games? since you have an amount of trials, whats the average number of plays? whats the share ratio on the ingame ads? sure you testing things out and nothing is made in stone, but even making a third of this would be awesome. if you cant answer this question now and we have to wait until you publish the details to public, just tell me and im looking forward to a good read its always nice when a sponsor publishes some insights of testing and evolving, thank you Alexander for sharing

    HTML5 Arcade

    Spil Games also provides that
  22. no its not, you should read the tos again however, if you get to many clicks they could think that you use clickbots and ban you in an instant really like the game, lovely made but the ads are a bit to agressive for me
  23. looks really cool, is it nearly finished or do you plan to advance the game even further?
  24. @Developoid: the form is always important regardless what workout you are doing. bad form might not only give you muscle imbalance, it could also prevent you from making progress. the key is to start light and doing it right! in every workout there are some beginner exercises, this also applys to yoga, crossfit, pilates and so on. its always advisable to start with beginner exercises and doing them nice and slowly. this prevents you from injuries and get you in proper form. aladine, said that he want to change something. given his story its possible that he killed his sensation of hunger and isnt doing any sport. well this is quite unhealthy and i understand why he want to change that. people today dont move enough throughout the day, especially in our branch. eating that less, is rarely coming from genes or metabolism. it comes from training your body to eat less and maintain his weight while not getting any calories for long periods. to change that, its not like you are going on a life long diet, its a lifestyle change. also as i mentioned, when you get to your goals its easier. this means that at your goal you dont have to work that hard anymore to maintain your it. meaning that he dont have to eat at 120% his whole life. its always important to know what your goals are, and when you asking yourself why are you doing this, you should always have a meaningful answer to it. i just giving hints of what he could do. since i dont know every detail or have had a look at him yet. it would be wise to contact a doctor for a talk and get some bloodtests done. basicly he is doing trial and error atm. stuffing hisself the whole day might work but it might also be not optimal. but anyway he's getting an idea of what its like to eat more often a day. but before its gone worst, i should drop him a PM. a close friend of mine had a similar problem, altough his body is different, he had a mentally problem of not eating right. he trained hisself slowly to eating less and ended up with a killed sensation of hunger. after he told me that the doctor said he will sooner or later kill himself when he's not changing something. since he was clueless of what to do and my expierence i gathered over more then a decade, i taked action and build him up. now he's quite jacked, cause he always wanted to get stronger. he's also enjoying everything i teached him and is back to good health. well thats one of the extrem cases i had over the years but it seems its worth telling here. everyone here having some problems to get to your goals should always look for help. but since its about you, you somehow have to work for it too. meh, i always ending up writing romans about fitness or game developing. if you made it to the end in every post, respect!
