Thanks !

I'm clearly biased, but I personally wouldn't touch most of those more popular games.

Give me a car, a plane or robot and I'm happy

For the 1.1 we're adding optional skins, an all-upgrades boost option for the ships (e.g. boost 10% efficiency of upgrades) and new missions.

For the 1.2, there are some ideas floating around.
Most likely new worlds and bosses.. possibly alternative weapons as well, but we'll have to see how that works out as far as gameplay goes.

Thanks for the support 8)

Sigh sob.. here comes the rant..

Two weeks have past and not a shadow of a piece of news about FCX has appeared on the front page of TA.. and now the rankings are really starting to drop.

All major mobile gaming sites almost completely ignored the game (except from The App Shack, thanks to syntheticvoid 8)

This is a major smack on our face that pretty much tells us that self-publishing has become a joke.

It's ridiculous to see TA's front page covered with news about Temple Run 2, or even updates of old games.. while a new game like FCX is flat out ignored.

Apple doesn't help either. For example in the Italian App Store there is a Flight Games section. Anything goes in there, it includes even Angry Birds and Tiny Wings, Zombie Gunship and even Top Gun which on that store has (I kid you not) a 1/2 star rating !
.. but god forbid they'd ever include FC or FCX.. those are not a decent flying games.. no.

I guess we've been naive.. hoping that making a good game would be enough.
It worked with our first title (Final Freeway), but it's going backwards now: the more effort you put into a title, the less it's cared about.

This isn't good for us, but also isn't good for the market.
People are bombarded with always the same freaking games. Or occasionally by some funky pixel art games.. but if you try to make a game that looks good, then you better have the right connections, or your game is as good as nothing.

Anyway, we're pushing forward with the 1.1. Although much of my time is currently wasted begging left and right to get the game noticed in any way.
The publishers out there must be ecstatic: another defeated developer that thought he could get away without paying his duty to get into the world of games that are worth squat for the press.

Our fault for being naive.. but man, what a disappointment..

Maybe tomorrow FCX will finally be noticed, who knows.. but at this point I wouldn't count on it.

End of rant.. really sorry about it.. but I had to vent it somewhere (^^;)

Not f.cking cool guys. I'm a big fan of your work and its a shame to see it pan out this way. There are more sites than TA out there. All I can say is keep fighting to push the title hard.

We're not giving up.. but most sites out there either tell us straight or make us understand that we have to pay up to be considered.

I understand that there's a market in reviewing apps.. but we truly can't afford to pay all of those reviews and ads spaces.

It's a shame, because I think that some sites could make an effort and review games like FCX for its own merits.

Thanks for the support.. hopefully the situation will improve
