BuzzBall help game sales boost ideas

Hi all.

Got any tips on building a following and sales for an iPhone game?

Ours (Howard Nager and me) game has been out almost a month and we're having trouble getting traction.

Game is BuzzBall (see link in signature for the game blog) and we're charging $.99.

Any thoughts you have would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Jeff

Create a thread with a iTunes link, screenshots, and video.

We have all that at the game blog. There's a video review there and the link to iTunes is there too.

Didn't want to be spammy here and duplicate it all.

Is that considered OK?

Thanks,

Jeff

Ok well I just checked out the YouTube vid on the site, it looks pretty neat, kinda reminds me of Paper Toss. You can embed the video here, I would do it for you but I'm on my phone away from comp.

Thanks. Here's the embedded video...[edit] NOPE, that didn't work. Pulling out Embed code and leaving link to the video.

This video was posted by Mike at Crazy Mike's App Reviews

And here is the iTunes Link to the game.

Thanks!

Jeff

***Admins, if this is in the wrong spot let me know. Am new here and want to obey rules. Especially as I'm getting into the whole iPhone app field. Thx.

I will create a thread for your game with appinfo and embedded video later if no other member has done it by then. Mods will explain why it was moved probably because you started the thread as a general question instead of a game introduction

Checked out the game because of this thread. Looks really cool and engaging like paper toss (as freedog said) - good pick up and play type of game.

One thing - I thought it was a bowling game because of the icon and first page. But when I started reading the description I realized it was wiffle ball. So neither the title nor the icon told me what the game was about so if someone saw it in a list of new releases or sports games etc, they might not know exactly what this is and might not even take the next step to click on the game page for a description.

EDIT: Just watched the video again (this time with the sound on) and he called it a bowling ball too!

Need to also change the name of the thread so people know that this is actually a description of a game!
