[FREE] Bloody Aliens ( by CrywolfDigital )

***** NEW UPDATE IS OUT NOW *****

Hi,

We have just released a free version of our game ĎBloody Aliensí. We have spent half a year working on the free version, improving the game with a brand new upgrade system, new weapons, updated gameplay, Gamecenter and much more.

About the game, itís a cartoon, over the top arcade game set in a space with a lot of cartoon gore and lot of weapons. Itís a fast paced, skill based game where you have to constantly get better to be able to progress and unlock new weapons.

So if you didnt get a chance to play previous version of the game ( removed from the Appstore now ), please give this one a go. Itís free

We are attaching images of the game and a link to the trailer. If you need any information or help with anything from our side, please dont hesitate to contact us.

This happens all too often when you buy a game on the AppStore anymore. The game doesn't sell well for whatever reason and gets pulled and re released as a F2P game. I understand that devs are just trying to get their game in as many hands as possible, but it sucks for the people that DID support them during those tough times. I'm sure the devs thought about that and for whatever reason, it made more sense for their company to pull the paid version instead of adding a free version along with the paid version, but this is why it's getting tougher and tougher to support premium games on the AppStore. You never know if the game you just bought will be there the next day.

Unfortunately not many people did support us, so it doesnt realy suck for anyone. Also you talk about our game as if we just rereleased the game, which is not true. We spent half year working on the game making it much better game than it was and now its for free on top of it. Huge amount of effort went into the game for this release, so if we did anything, then it was make much better game and made it free so more people can enjoy it.

Oh, I wasn't talking bad about the game at all. I actually downloaded it this morning. It's not your fault on the situation. That's just how the market is right now, but it IS getting tougher and tougher to support devs nowadays. You never know what's going to happen. It's a double edge sword. If you support the dev and buy their game, you run the risk of the game not getting attention and being pulled or not supported anymore or brought back as a F2P title, but if you DONT support the dev, then one of those three mentioned is enevidable. No matter what somebody is not going to be happy. I guess it's the nature of the beast. It just sucks for the people that do support indie devs and these things happen.

I'm not knocking your game at all. I think I paid a buck for it and probably got my dollars worth of entertainment out of it anyway. I downloaded the game this morning and I'll try and leave some imps on this version after I play it a little. I dont want to turn your thread into a rant about the market.

thanks a lot you downloaded and actualy played the game, that grants you right to rant as you want But i understand what you are saying and you are right. Unfortunately the situation with Appstore is for devs now very difficult unless you have big publisher behind you. Removal of new category on the Appstore basicly means you have to rely only on the marketing, which proves very difficult to do unless you have huge budget on your own. So even tho we for example spent almost 2 years working on the game (not fulltime tho) and we realy poured our souls into the game, its very hard to get noticed with the flood of the games. So when you try to release the game as paid version and barely anyone notices you, you have to do something. Unfortunately this is the situation for absolute majority of the devs. We could hardly do anymore for the game we did now for the free version, so we will see if at least someone will play it. We would just love people to at least try the game and hopefully enjoy the game as any dev, but it gets harder every year. Anyways, enough of my own rant I didnt took it as something offensive what you said, i just tried to explain that the situation for the devs is hard and they have to do what they can. If we would have user base of 20 000 people who paid for the game we wouldnt take it down, but that wasnt the case. If you sell 20 000 copies of paid game even for $1, its already considered quite big succes. So keep in mind that indie devs usualy scrape pennies, unless they hit the jackpot throught Appstore feature or some big review site covers them.

Anyways, we got that covered If you will get a chance to play the game, please let us know what you think. We are grateful for any feedback. Thanks.

I gave this version a go and I have to say that I prefer this version BETTER! Lol, I will admit when I'm wrong. Not too many times that I prefer the free version over the paid version. I like all the upgrades to work for in the game now. There's a ton of them. It gives me more reason to play besides just a high score. I like how the ads are implemented also. So far, I haven't seen any, except for voluntarily watching them for coins.

Great job! I hope this version works out for you guys!
