Best ways to promote my game?

I am wondering what would be the best way to promote my game Wire Storm (http://www.wire-storm.com).

Things I've tried so far:


A) I've contacted almost every app review site I could find in an attempt to get reviews.

B) The game actively encourages challenging friends through Game Center.

C) The game encourages sharing your score on Facebook and Twitter for social growth.


D) I am running ads on http://www.appshopper.com and http://www.angrybirdsnest.com. They are not converting well.

E) I am going to try running my first Chartboost campaign. At this point I am just testing the waters as I don't think the math will work out considering it is minimum $0.50 per install. The only way I see it working is with a large budget to boost App Store rankings.

I am really at my witts end here. I don't mind spending $$$ if I can make the money back in a reasonable time, but everything I've tried so far has failed.

Any feedback and suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
