Sorry I don't have any more promos to give... But I am confident that you will enjoy it! 95% of the reviews I get from users at the various appstores contain the word "addictive" and "fun"... Looking forward for your opinion!

Nicely animated endless popper! The effects are very nice, and the animation is very crisp. However, all the powerups require coins, which come infrequently, and all the powerup choices appear to be temporary additions, not permanent. I choose not to engage in consumable IAPs, so overall this game was a disappointment for me.

Well dclose thank you for the review, however I strongly believe that you misjudged the game. Or didn't understand it at all.

Out of the 27 powerups offered by the game only 2 are consumables or temporary additions all other 25 are permanent.

These two consumables are also the ones that the game occasionally drops for you to pickup even if you never collect coins. Also the coins come infrequently because you oviously didn't level up you "popcorn box" to something that increases your "luck", or didn't enable the luck bonus, and even if don't do that every combo gives from 1 to n-1 coins where n is the combo size. For a player that evolves beyond starter and does combos this means lots of coins...

I hope you will give more time to the game and realize that you missjudged the 2/27=7% of consumables to be "mostly consumables" when it is not...

You are correct, I did not understand that most of the powerups were permanent! I think I must've used up the only consumeable ones in the game, and I assumed the others were not permanent because visually they look the same -- they all have a bubble around them, so that makes it look like you break it to use it.

Good to know! They never dropped during my games, so I definitely should take another look at this. Thanks for letting me know, and thanks for the tips to game play!

Please consider making it more obvious (visually? or on the tutorial screen?) that the powerups are permanent things.

I will definitely reinstall this and give it another run. The graphics worked very well and the game was fun to play otherwise.

This is so exciting! Pop Corny just overtook Tiny Tower on the US AppStore, and is about to break into the top 10. What a feeling neighboring with NimbleBit and so many other indie games rockstars!

Thank you so much everybody for getting my game so high, I am humbled.
