Well Folmer, George and I are at it again,

We released Battle Golf yesterday and we got a Best New Games Feature, Seems to be a pretty global feature. Its also featured on iPad in 15 funniest games, I think it was supposed to be for Wrassling but since I didn't upload a iPad preview video they used Battle Golf. Wrassling is in 15 Funniest games on iPhone. So make sure you Upload iPhone and iPad preview movies.

Battle Golf was just supposed to be a little fun project, we wanted to make a local 2 player version of our second game Golf is Hard. The Dev time was real quick, just 2 weeks. Luckily Apple seemed to think it was feature worthy!

34K downloads yesterday which I think is pretty crazy considering it was only featured for half the day. Wrassling only did 5K in that time period although i think the feature started a bit later in the day.

Im interested to see how it does, its fun but its no Wrassling.

thanks again to Stencyl for creating this awesome software and all the people who help out.

Great job on another successful release. You're living the indie game dev dream!

I have a question for you: With 3 members on the team, how do you divide the workload?

It's really hard to guess how much downloads a featured game will get.  I wouldn't be surprised to see 200k but also wouldn't be surprised to see 1M.

64K today, thats twice as much as Wrassling got in its peak day. Doing well in the rankings, was number 1 in the UK and US for Sports on iPad for a while today.

I create the game in Stencyl, Folmer does the Pixel art, George ports the game to Android and assists with the monitizeation side of things.

You guys are on a roll! Good job!

Would be interested in some revenue stats after the feature is over.

Its funny you chose to post that today as the Best New Games feature literally ended about an hour ago. its been a good week though, an Average of 45k downloads a day. Ranked #1 in 25 countries on iPad.

We got some new features now, Best of July in south american countries. Bizarre sports in some smaller countries. 15 Funniest games is still floating around too.  Downloads and rankings will start dropping steadily now so we are planning our first update to give it a little boost.

312K downloads in one week, pretty awesome. Wrassling is on 386K but I expect battle golf to catch it soon.
