kzwen,
Well to be honest we did our game free not because "sales sucked". For now we are waiting out Little Rockets Lite and HD versions. Also update is coming.
When Lite version will be released we will change the game to paid.
We did it free because we have no promocodes left to send emails to review sites like TouchArcade. Now they can download it for free. Also it gives a little promotion before iPad and Lite versions releases.
It would be great if readers give some advices on future updates. What would you like to change in this game, some adequate wishes etc.
Just please without 'angry' comments

thank you for your response! i have played the first six levels. the game kinda reminded me of Blocks Mania - which is a very good thing! i dig the art style, and the music too. feedback? honestly, i have no ideas for improvement or suggestions at the moment, but if i will then you'll surely know about them!
good luck with the upcoming iPad version!

I downloaded & played that Blocks Mania - it's really good game. I wonder why it got so many one star ratings. There are thounsands of users in the App Store that love to put bad ratings just because his app crashes or he saw some bugs or something wrong went with just his device etc.
About Little Rockets, currently I'm changing the very beginning of the game - I guess playes not got impressed of putting arrows on a map. But it's not a game. It's just training.
So next week I will update the game again with big game structure changes. And surely post some promocodes here.
For those people that still want to know what the game looks like please watch gameplay video:

Unfortunately, after several seconds of hard-thinking I decided to switch to paid.
The main reason is PROTECTING from users. This game is BRAIN THINKER and not for everyone. A lot of players (aged from 5 to 16) downloaded it to expext gameplay with no brains needed like angry birds or fruit ninja. I just don't want those kind of users to download this game. Although it looks like arcade game for kids - it isn't.
Hope you'll understand this decision.
Thank you

I think I nabbed it while it was still free, but either way I would have gladly paid for it. May I redirect you to this thread now that it's no longer free?
