So my iPhone game, Falling Balls, has been out for almost a year. In the first few weeks it was out, it rose to be the #1 free application on the iTunes App Store. Trust me, this surprised nobody more than it did ME. It stayed in the top spot for a day or two, maybe more, I forget exactly, then started slowly sinking down the chart. But it sank quite slowly. I think it stayed in the top 100 for something like a few months. And even after it was out of the top 100 free apps list, it was still hanging in there in the top 100 free games list. Of course, all good things come to an end, and eventually it went out of site.
Until now! Yesterday, somebody tweeted a link to this review:
Now you can’t ask for a better review than that. I read it, smiled, got a nice ego boost out of it and got back to work.
Cut to this evening. I get home, I’m relaxing in my chair, my iPhone is sitting there beside me. I get one of those bored moments where I think, maybe I’ll download a fun little iPhone game. I figure, let’s see what free games are available first, maybe I’ll luck out and get something fun for nothing. I open the “Top 25 Free Apps” page, and to my astonishment…
Yes, Falling Balls is the #2 free application! Amazing.
