I invite you to check it out seems like people are liking it and it is FREE on iOS and Android. it has Game Center and iAd and Admob and all and everything seems to be working properly thanks to stencyl :) hope you like it and never give up, keep trying and you will succeed.

Hi Rami,

That is good success and inspiring.  Just a quick comment whenever you post regarding your games you should have download links it will incite people to click on them and try out your app.

Also did you do anything to market your app to get this success ?
And if you can share any numbers that would be great ;)

Best of luck moving forward

Hmm

Also I just downloaded and tried the game.. good concept, simple and addictive I guess flappy whatever inspired in a sense ;)

I don't see any ads and I am on iOS
Also when I press the rate button I receive an error stating Item Not available the iten you've requested is not currently available in the Canadian Store..

One last note if you press several times on the mission impossible button it will prompt as many times to confirm the purchase.. it is also possible to start the game and then get the pop-up :(

Thanks so much for bringing that up to my attention. Apparently in the rate button i have the link set up wrong :S ill fix it in an update. The iAds are popping up here and now for some people , apple says i have to wait a couple more days and things will work properly with the ads. admob on android is filling up well always.
here is my website : www.hayloworks.com and it has links to android and apple to download the app.

Hey Rami,

I like your way of using flappy mechanics in creative way of Cannon Bee.

Would you mind to share your Google Play Statistics from Dev Console?

Sure:
on googleplay from may 20 - may 22 (thats the latest that its showing now) there are 115 downloads in those 2 days. 50% of those are from the U.S.  i saw the game appear in the top new releases also at rank about 160 the last i checked.
ratings i have 47. with 4.96 average.

now on iOS it is doing better i believe. i have total  download in that period of 400 so far. the game is at rank 20 now in my app store games in arcade and action and rank 40 in all games. and im getting new downloads all the time. like gamecenter increased by about 70 players today so im sure tomorrows stats will look even better for ios.  i noticed that some new games are bringing my app rank down but then i surpass them again. i guess because they aren't generating consistent new downloads and probably just getting a surge of downloads when the app first comes out from their friends downloading it or something. 

i dont know where this will go but it exciting watching the ranking. kinda like the stock market! lol

hahaha cool! yeah it speeds up at 3 then at 10 then every about 15 you get.
But the impossible mission is made to be the fastest that still allows passing. A true challenge ;)
I still hold the high score in the regular game at 37 now lol

Oh and writing the physics for the ball was a real &@#$(@*(#*$ pain! Good thing I'm still good at my calculus :P

UPDATE: Things still seem to be going well ! Yesterday was a good day, got 190 downloads in a 6 hours window! Still climbing up the charts. I got some feedback that the game may be a bit tough but still i decided to stick with it as it is. I guess it depends on dexterity but after a few tries it should be good. I mean i'm seeing an increasing number of people on leaderboard getting above 20 which is good i believe.

AWESOME UPDATE: Today my app got featured on the AppStore in many countries in the new games arcade and action sections for both iPad and iPhone!! And the places where it is featured are pretty good! It is featured in the 27th place in USA, 17th place in Canada, 2nd place in UAE, 1st place in Lebanon, and 39th place in New Zealand, and 10th place in France, 35th place in China!

Does anyone have any experience with this?? How good is this? or am i getting excited over nothing? LOL
