Oh yeah, it has tons of ads. In fact, if you swipe, touch, or even look at the screen we show an ad (well, maybe not quite that often).

That reminds me, we need to look into that BitCoin mining scam too...

I like the art! And I can't blame you for being freemium, that's what seems to work nowadays anyway.

I like that you guys can at make jokes about it, as it's just the way things are now. \_(ツ)_/

I'm all in for the bitcoin way though haha...

Is this your only iOS game? I see you have quite a few android

Sure do - all our Android games are available on iOS. In fact all our mobile games started on iOS and have been ported to Android (we use Unity3D which takes a lot of the pain out of porting). Here's a link to our iOS games:

But, seriously, we do have ads in Snow Spin, but if you make any in-game purchase all the ads are removed. Plus, there are no ads on the gameplay screens (yet).

This is kind of a spiritual successor to Crazy Snowboard. We wanted to make a snowboarding game with touch/swipe controls, and Snow Spin evolved from a prototype.

We are also working on an update to Crazy Snowboard which takes advantage of the extra grunt on the new devices (when I say new, I mean iPhone5):

Do many of you view these forums on a computer (as opposed to an iDevices)?

Would you be interested in playing a web browser version (Unity3D plugin required)? Who knows, we might even run a little competition for some prizes...

Sound good?
