HELP! HELP!! HELP!!! how to get review on my app/games?

hey guys,
My game is released on 18th January 2014. But I've not get any review from any review site. I've applied more then 130 review sites. What should I do?

Please guys help me out, at least give me a solution.

Is there any marketing plan that I should take please let me inform. I'm really worry about my game.

[I can ensure that my game is one of the best game in App store]

HELP! HELP!! HELP!!!

Simple answer: There is no way to push it without using money.

To be honest: I don't think (payed) review sites are worth it.

Well, if no one wants to review your game maybe it's about time to look at its quality?

Thanks for your reply. To be honest I think my game is such quality who deserves review. I have an average of 5 out of 31 [Watch out Eggy Free] and 4 of 13 review/ratings [Watch out Eggy] from app store. Believe me, among those 31 and 13 app store review/ratings none of them are of my friends. All reviews are from individual gamer. I also surprised when I see five reviews of Watch out Eggy has gone, and those are the 5 stars rating besides they all reviewed the paid version.

You can try the free version of my game.

My experience is sites will review you on their own if they want to review you, otherwise they will try and charge you.

The bulk of the review sites won't make a big difference and those that would generally charge more than the benefit they offer. I don't actually know anyone who has paid for a review so it would be good to hear positive and negative experiences of people paying for it.

For me just a hobby and I am happy even now people download my games every day.

Please follow me on twitter @JamesDestined I post lots of development from both my game creation and professional development.

My game Watch out Eggy Free Has been released on the 18th January. I don't know why I am getting poor downloads. I have done all the marketing. Even I hired app marketing agency app shout. It applied over 150 review sites for me. Still I did not find any single review from any review sites. At the same time, I am watching low quality games are getting review. One might tell me that my game might not be so good to get review. But I am really proud to say that Watch out Eggy is one of the best games iTunes market has ever seen. It is really that good. I am not lying. The game play is unique and thrilling. Today the download of this game is just 2!
