Default Push Panic - [Rerelease]




Hi Guys,

I wanted to get your attention for the move of Push Panic from Appular to my own publishing account. Appular is quitting the publishing market and removing all their apps from the app store. So I had no other choice then to rerelease Push Panic under my own name. Otherwise Push Panic would just vanish from the app store.

Push Panic is now available under my own name and will be free the first couple of days, so that current customers have a chance to move to the rereleased version for free.

The bad news is that all level progress / GameCenter Leaderboard and Achievements are lost, there was no way to move those over to the new version. On the other hand: Now everyone has a new chance to set a nice rank on the 3 additional game modes.

Also all app store reviews are gone, which is a big shame. So I would like to ask you guys to leave a review. It'll be appreciated.

That sucks. Very cool of u to make it free for a bit during the transition. It's an awesome game. Trying to think if I bought any other Appular games that are being pulled.

Maybe that's a bit OT here.. But I was just curious: how does this re-releasing work, legally-wise? With the rights and everything?

Legally I have all the rights of the IP. When it was published by Appular the game's copyright was mine. So legally there is not much more in there. The big problem is the lost of progress and GameCenter Leaderboard and Achievements. And offcourse all the reviews on the internet that now point to an pulled app.

Also all itunes reviews are lost, which is a real bummer. I hope some of you post a new review

So long for releasing a title with a publisher, I propably won't go that route anymore.

that's tough luck, man. losing the reviews especially - your game was pretty popular around here back in it's day and hopefully a few fans of the game will see fit to help you out with a re-download and new review. I hope you saved some email lists

I like your game too and I will help out and give a shout to my people on twitter and FB. Having it free for a few days should help a little Good luck!

Default Game Impressions

I will try to get a review back up and thanks for this little free preview for us old timers not wanting to be forced to repurchase it (even if it is more than worth repurchasing).
