This is an awesome game!

Cannot blame the devs because of the nature of the appstore. This is a business, im sure they rather be selling higher but they gotta do what they gotta do so im guessing is better not to take it personal.

Awesome service. Looked at this yesterday, and figured it would be cheap soon. A no name special looking game needs to be $0.99 these days for most people to jump aboard. Hitting the buy button... NOW. :-)

Excellent game, bought at full price, totally worth it. I wish it would have been noticed at $3, as I'm sure you do too, but such is life on the app store.

Get this people and help a brutha out by posting an honest review on the app store.

Super Crate Box Footie, FTW!!!

Gabrien, I know your stance on these things, but make an exception for this game... believe me, it's worth owning.
Couldn't say it better. Really support these devs even with the price drop, then again I got a promo for this, but still. Awesome game that is a steal for a buck. Cmon gabrien, make an exception, they had no choice.

It's a really nice game, hectic, fun, and a great graphical style.

I really don't understand why an issue should be made about the price drop after a couple of days. If the game doesn't currently sell well at a higher price point, there is no point in staying there.

After what is many, many countless hours of work, it is pretty demoralising to see almost no attention being paid to something that has had plenty of love put into every crack of the game, as can clearly be seen in Blast Ball.

This game deserves more attention compared to most of what has been released.

I truly hope the drop in price increases your sales.

Thanks for the support guys, it's much appreciated. I'm really glad people seem like the game, right now it's just a matter of exposure. To give a bit of perspective on sales, I sold exactly 7 copies yesterday, which was disappointing to say the least. The price drop has resulted in the rankings going up a bit, so it should hopefully be better going forward.

damnit that sucks. Haunted Hallway was pretty damn decent... but what really stood out with HH was the support you gave it post-release.

Just picked this up, installing it now. Don't know how it slipped by me this week...

Anywho... wish you the best of luck, and I hope sales pick up. =o/

**edit**


just started playing, and WOW!! I can tell this is gonna keep me hooked for a while. definitely a nice take on the SCB gameplay. =oD

Back again after having tried the game.

Damn I really enjoy this game. Perfect controls and speed. Awesome chiptune track (we need more songs NAOW).

This is Super Crate Box with a football, and I love it. Wohoo.

It's doing much better after the price drop

It was also featured as eurogamer's app of the day today, which was really awesome!
