    Hungry Lizards

    I just made my game FREE to celebrate 1,000 downloads at 99 cents. It's free from August 15th to September 15th.

    Hungry Lizards is a retro arcade re-make of the Atari classic "Frogs & Flies".

    Congratz on hitting 1000 downloads :)
    I've read your previous thread with the steps by steps you used to create it, it was a lot of work and research. Thanks for showing the making off, and good luck for the future!

    Thanks! It's seriously people like you that keep me carrying on even when the game doesn't have the greatest sales week. I appreciate your support.

    It's crazy my game went live in mid May for 99 cents, I just crossed the 1,000 download mark in mid August. I made it free at 6pm EST yesterday and already have over 1,100 downloads in 6 hours...

    A lot of people don't like to pay by internet and don't link their credit card to account, etc.
    not necessarily because they don't like to pay for things and get everything for free.
    It's good too, more people will test/discover it and some of them can remember you for your next game :)

    I've been a member here for over 9 years.

    The game is FREE, no ads, no IAPs.

    I have been posting my progress here as I was making the game along with videos about how I made it, etc...

    I number of people on here expressed interest in the game, so I'm simply alerting them to the fact it's free.

    Once the game goes back to 99 cents in September, I won't be posting about the game.

    Mods, if this is considered advertising I apologize and you can remove it.

    It's fine for me, you are showing your progress.
    But you could have used your other topic to continue discussion there.

    Yeah, I always used to post in general off-topic, but then I noticed the mobile phone topic and did a re-post, my bad.
