Default Krashlander Numbers - A Year On The App Store

For those interested in App Store stats, here is what a year on the App Store looked like for my game, Krashlander - Ski, Jump, Crash!.

FYI, this is a link off this site to my blog.

Krashlander - A Year On The App Store

I actually posted this in the Krashlander thread as well, hopefully duplicating here is not a problem. If so, feel free to remove it moderators.

Thanks for sharing - some really interesting info. for developers.

Seems clear that going free is the way to go, to get as many downloads as possible, then monetize with Ads and IAP's, for those who are willing to spend money on your game.

Not really. What matters when you're F2P is usage, not installs. We have no data on the usage of Krashlander.

Still - a fascinating tale that shows indie development can be a indie scale success still. Thanks for sharing!

You're welcome everyone. Glad you found the numbers interesting. Will post my ad revenue once the free version has been out for a while.
