Promo codes for my 4 games

I've got 3 games currently for sale on iTunes, with another in review with Apple at the moment.

Check out my sig for links to the games and their lite versions.

I've been giving away promo codes via individual threads, but that is a slow process, and requires a lot of management on my part. 1 minute between sending each PM is a pain!

Because it takes so long to manage, I often end up not giving away all the promo codes I have available.

To try to make things easier, I am going to start an email list of people who would like to receive promo codes for my game.

Rules I will follow:
  • I will not share your email addresses with anyone.
  • I will only email promo codes, contests for promo codes, and info about updates + new releases of my game
  • I will happily remove anyone who asks
  • Be polite
  • I can't guarantee how many codes I will have to give away, because some from each game have to be given to development team members, sent to big review sites etc.
  • I can't guarantee that everyone will get a code straight away, but I will keep track of who I have given what to, and try to spread them around evenly.

My objective in giving away promo codes is to help get the word out about my games, and ultimately to help generate sales.

As such, here are the rules for you, for when you get a promo code:
  • If you think the game is worth 3 stars or more, leave an iTunes review
  • If you think it is worth less than 3 stars, send me an email with what you think needs improvement
  • If you write a review for iTunes, or for a blog, send me an email letting me know
  • Promo codes are for you to use, not for trading
  • Be polite

If you are interested in getting on the list, and are willing to follow the rules, please send me a PM with your email address.

If you like the look of any of my games in particular, tell me.

If you write reviews for a blog, or do something else you think I would be interested in, let me know that too!

Hopefully this should speed things up for me, and let me pass more promo codes on to you!

This is a great idea to spread the word about your games.

I love all of your games, but can't justify getting gumdrops at that price with billions of pricedrops left and right. I sent you an e-mail and really think that each game is a big step up from the last in terms of gameplay and graphics. Maybe you could go back (if your games start doing better) and bring upsi looper and upsi runner up to snuff with "gumdrops" and soon to be "billionaire"

Playing: Hi How Are You, iBlast Moki, Rolando, ScareCrow, and all of my Plus+ games.
