         Hello , i would like to showcase my first game project, a simple endless casual arcade game called Apples Mania : Apple Catcher. The game has simple goal , scoring as high as possible by collecting falling apples while the difficulty gradually increases. Different apples are worth different amount of points and there are also 2 power-ups to help you in your challenge.
        The game took me about 2 months to complete and polish and i made everything except for the music tracks and some of the sound files. Made in unity and blender3d.
        Would appreciate any kind of feedback.
      Google Play Link

      I'm using construct 2 physics I have a working bike with everything setup and I'm able to do frontflip and backflip by adding angular velocity to the bike
      I want to increase score/ add points and display the "backflip / frontflip" text when the bike does it.
      so please help me I want to know the logic and how it's done.
      p.s. example about construct 2 is not necessary, just explain me how other games do it or anything else you have to share
      Thanks,
      Drago

      You have 12 hours to search for supplies, transportation or you can continue your journey.
      But as soon as night falls, you must find shelter, turn it into a fortress to stand against the hordes of monsters.
      Equip soldiers, use bonuses and do not forget to follow the energy level of your fighters. 
      In battle be useful to your transport, it would be nice to find a tank.
      Every day the number of monsters to get more, they mutate into stronger and more dangerous forms.

Hey all.  Saw this yesterday on the iTunes Connect page, then here on reddit:
 
 
Am surprised there isn't more chatter on it.
 
One of the nice things about the App Store (viz a viz Android) was that you did *not* need to go this whole arduous route, find a publisher, etc. for China and could just go direct via the store.
 
I would think this would affect lots of indie devs making money there.
 
I'm dying to know what the timeframe is (will they pull current games or only require updates to abide?, etc.), what people's strategies are (I can't imagine everyone is intending to sign with a publisher just like that), etc.
 
Thoughts all?  We can't be the only ones affected :)

I'm not doing mobile/china, so not affected. Thanks for sharing though, I will ask around :)

 

As far as I know, all the indies that I know who are selling games in China actually do use a publisher though instead of doing it themselves.

It's such a different market to the west -- there isn't just a single app store like Google Play / etc, so it's a lot of work to get your game onto as many of their app stores as possible. Their spending patterns are different, so the same monetization strategies don't apply. If you have a free-to-play / freemium game, it needs to be re-balanced for china. Their gameplay preferences are different - gameplay often needs to be re-tweaked for China. Response to marketing is different - advertising / artwork often needs to be re-done. Legislation is very different -- stuff like this happens!! etc... All of this makes partnering up with a local publisher a smart move.

We typically have our indie clients go through a Chinese publisher-- not sure it's worthwhile not to considering the difficulty enforcing legal action against clones if you're in the US (Chinese publisher is designated as authorized agent for enforcement purposes). I'll check around though. Thank you for sharing!
