[Brexit Special] Countryballs - The Polandball Game: FREE for the first time

We are three hobby game developers and after one year we decided to make our game Countryballs free for the very first time for a limited time. It has an overall 5/5 star rating and we would love to hear your feedback about it!

Kind regards,

Story of the developers:

We are three hobby devs and started developing games 2 years ago. Of course, our skills were limited and not many people played our first games (Snappy Dealz - a Flappy Bird inspired game as our first project for an German website's anniversary and our very original puzzle game 21 Dice). We started a YouTube channel to reach to viewers, which surprisingly grew bigger as expected, but which did not really affect our app downloads.

As we are big fans of the Countryball comics the idea came up to build a game based on this topic and to reach to its audience. We tried to convey the feeling of the comics as good as possible by drawing own vivid levels and comic stripes. For the people, who don't know the comics: They depict international politics in a humorous, but often satirical way.

Since we put a lot of effort in designing, programming and testing this app, we initially offered it for $0.99. It got a fair amount of downloads, which was enough to go out a night or two, but never reached a bigger audience. Now with all the international crises going on, we want to share this game with all of its humor with all of you for FREE! As you might know: Once you offer your game free on the PlayStore, you cannot change back to a paid app.

Currently we got quite positive reviews 4.6 out of 5 star rating and there are NO In-App purchases or any advertisements.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask. We want to hear your feedback, looking forward to your comments!

Kind regards,


tl;dr: We developed a Countryballs game from scratch, not many people downloaded it, now it's available for free. :P
