Just got the email last night, Falling Balls is now available in the Windows 8 Store!
I’m really interested to see how this does. I’ve implemented Bing ads in the game, exactly the same way they are implemented in the iOS version, i.e. when you die, there is a banner ad in the top center of the screen. It goes away when you start playing, so it’s not there to distract you from game play. You don’t want to see an ad – don’t die! However, I’m not seeing any ads in the live app. It took a while to see any at all while I was testing, though it worked fine using a test ad account. From looking at various forum posts, I think they just don’t have that much inventory, so there is very low fulfillment rate. I may need to switch to another ad provider if Bing doesn’t pull through soon.
I also have some additional features I want to add to the game. Considering making them in-app purchases, but if I can get ads working a bit better, I’d be happy to keep them free.
