Some good news!

May 23, 2010

Hello everyone,

We apologize for any problems that were observed a few days ago!

Sometimes the game has been crashing, seemingly without any reason. As it turned out – this happened due to problems with our advertisers – Quattro Wireless. We couldn’t influence the process, but, fortunately, Quattro guys quickly fixed the problem!

The next big news is that we’re working on to make AD-FREE version of Pobs available on Android Market. As you may know, there are many problems for devs to sell apps in Market, but soon, we hope, you can buy the game without any ads. For now you can buy Pobs at SlideME – an alternative Android app store.

And finally… we’re working on update for the game. In plans: FroYo features, more sociality and some new content 🙂 . If you have suggestions or comments – please mail us: thechipsteam@gmail.com . Or just write in comments.

Great news! Pobs has hit 10 000 downloads in Android Market! That was on 17th of March, actually. Pobs was released on 10th of February and after month and a week it has been downloaded 10k (now 12k) times. Now it has nearly entered Top-100 in Brain and Puzzle category in Android Market. Without any ad promoting and marketing, and without being featured by Google, we think this is a good result for now. But, hopefully, we’ll keep going 🙂

Pobs has 233 ratings and average is about 4,5 stars. One of the main reasons why people put 1 star rating are built-in ads.

We’ll write about the money from built-in ads later, but one thing we can tell you right now – we haven’t earned so much, but in a ~20 days with a free Android game we earned MORE than with 0.99$ one on iPhone in HALF A YEAR. This is crazy! These markets have so many differences…

Version 1.2.1 has been released to the Market. This is a small update to fix minor bugs, so you won’t see many changes, only less buggy game.

  • Autosave feature improved. Now you always can continue your unfinished game.
  • FPS optimized
  • Random game mode: strong AI fixed
  • Quick game:  ‘lower difficulty’ dialog window added
  • Quick game: AI fixed (‘Zorro’ lvl)
  • Menu: click sound changed
  • Intro for newbies
  • Minor bugs fixed
