    Hello guys,

    I'm a developer .I released my new game on January 19, 2013.
    I also posted some previews In some forums before i published it. Although there were guys give some good feedbacks ,but still not got good downloads when it was published.
    As we know,without proper promotion.the games will be buried in android maket like many others. but I dont know what is the effective way to promote it.

    There are some details about my game and some promotions i had did .I can't ensure all are helpful.just talk about my efforts

    GAME INFO:
    Title: Block Story
    Android os :2.1 and later
    Maket:https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...kwy_admob_free
    Date:January 19, 2013--- January 26, 2013
    Total downloads:433

    What I had done:
    10 days ago
    1、Make a promotional document( description、video 、feature、tips and some Screenshots)
    2、Post previews in some forums( some replies have gave me many confidences,but not keep in a long time)
    3、Email to some editors for a review request( replies are either refusalr or introduction about the paid review ,)

    4 days ago
    1、Publish on google play(Add multi- language description with the help of google translation)
    2、Share url with your friends and ask for a rating and review.
    3、Publish on some website( adroidpit \mobango......)
    4、App/game forums (link 、Video、images)
    5、Facebook \twitter

    What else i can do? plz give me some suggestions.
    Could it be said that it is because of the gameplay?

    Perhaps try Emailing it to Android Central or other Android sites like Droid-Life.

    Also try contacting some reviewers from YouTube.

    share with others by facebook ,I have taken a try.however,just got several downloads.
    The best way to promote your game app is make the game in high quality. Anyway, Facebook is another useful method, in my eyes.

    Try personally In boxing reviewers, maybe build a 'fan base' email them for pre releases and codes to use your apps prior to the official release like aviate did.

    Logo change could help, looks like it's targeted for younger children - it could be or you could have a version for age groups.
