Ankagua3D Poll

Hello! I'm Antonio, from StormBASIC games.
We are preparing an update of Ankagua, and I have a poll!
Should we quit the startup video from the game?

As with any video so long as there is an option to Skip I'd leave it there.

Quit? You mean delete it?
Startup videos make the game fancier, as long as there's an option to skip.
I don't know what Ankagua is, some explanation?

Ankagua3D is a puzzle game (sokoban style), developed by StormBASIC games.
Here are some screenshots:

We can skip it whenever we like. As long as it's there, it provides a context to the game, which I think is GOOD!
Do you want to do it to make the app size smaller?

Yes, some users said that don't like the video...and if we quit it, the app will be smaller about 1mb

don't get rid of it, just the option to "skip" the video. It adds personality to the game and I like the way it looks.

As others have mentioned, since there's a "skip" button, I'm not bothered at all. I'd say, if anything, make it so that it auto starts only on the first startup (like most tutorials). Then on subsequent startups, just go straight to the main menu... But make the video viewable in options.

I guess this doesn't solve the issue of freeing up space... But I think it's nice to have context.

1 MB is like ~1/4 the size of a song, nobody is that tight on memory space in their iDevice. I agree with the rest, don't can the video entirely, start it as usual, just include the option to skip it.

I wouldn't remove the video either. It's add some context what's going on, and I still like watching it on occasion.
