Hello fellow Stencylers,

Folmer, George and I released a new game yesterday, Wheelie 2. Its a follow up to our very first game Wheelie Legend.
Its a simple arcade high score chaser, based around wheeling a dirt bike, unlockable characters etc.

Special mention also goes to SadiQ for the random terrain behaviour!

Got some good features from Apple, Best New games in most of the big countries in Europe, Best New games but in the see all tab in the US and China, but still happy with that.

Congrats on the release mate. The art does indeed look great. Any youtubers covered it?

how do you get all your new games featured by apple? xD i'm just curious about it, do you do something special when submitting your game to them or it's just luck?

I think the features are becoming easier with the more downloads we get, Wrassling is probably the game that gave us a bit of a reputation.

Some tips would be, Make sure your screenshots are good and you fill all the slots, upload both iphone and ipad app preview videos. Contact press although this depends a lot on the game. The Press were all over wrassling since it was quite unusual, so we got lots of articles and youtube videos. Wheelie 2 is a little more generic, standard arcade game so hasn't had much press, its not really a youtube friendly game either.

Well done I played this and actually found it in the top charts (UK) easy to play hard to master! Good fun :)

Congrats ! Looks nice !!

But have you seen, the Moon is in Front of the Mountains instead of behind the Mountains. !! (Wrong Layer!)
I have not played the game yet, but i have seen this Glitch in your Product Video at Google Play !

Haha, yeah, we are aware of this. Sadly it's not the wrong layer, it's because I had to merge some of the backgrounds because the game was crashing due to memory issues. The mountains and clouds are now on the same layer so when I fade the night sky layer in (which has the moon on it) I need it to be infront of the clouds and therefore infront of the mountains.

The moon in front of the mountain will haunt me forever.

And thanks for the compliments on the art, everyone :) Really wanted to try something different from pixel art, turned out p ok I think!

Hi, thanks,

The combination of Admob and chartboost brought in a little over $1200 a day for the feature week, its on a steady drop now after the feature. Im interested to see where it levels off at as we were making around $100 a day before the launch of Wheelie.

The iAP didn't really bring much in as usual.

Hi,

Grats really good to heard good numbers :)
Yea IAP-s are not a good solution maybe next time try a video unlock things that would make better results i think.
