Zero sales so far. But I'm not on any of the lists there, so that's not terribly surprising.

Wasn't Hong Kong always open, and treated as a separate store? I have sales there, but Rogue Touch does not even show up in the China App Store yet...

I'm still trying to figure out what you have to do to get your game even listed in China. Apple aren't answering my questions. If anyone knows how to get listed please PM me.

We even translated Darkest Fear to Chinese arrggg

RovioMobile,

My games were listed quickly. Is there a chance your game got censored and wasn't allowed on the Chinese store? Possible answer?

The iPhone has really landed in China, but to a cold reception it would seems

Most article I read are similar, no big buzz or huge line of people waiting. So will see how it goes.

Apparently a big reason for the tepid launch is that there are already a lot of imported iPhones in China.


Does anyone have an idea of what types of game might get censored from China's app store?

hey guys, as a developer in china, I really don't think market here will be big unless the paid method changed.
in china now, to buy app in app store,you must use a credit card,which is not very populor online payment method here.

also, costomer base is small now

but I do hope all things will be better soon, then I can make the app with my own language
