iAssociate 2 has been released!

by edi on May.29, 2010, under iPhone development

After a lot of long days (and nights) iAssociate 2 has finally been released on the App Store! For those of you who are waiting for more content to iAssociate, this is your chance to get to play brand new levels as well as experience brand new gameplay features!

Here, let me show you quickly what iAssociate 2 looks like before I go into the new features that it has.

As you can see the game is visually already totally different from iAssociate, but those aren’t the only differences. As you already can see from that screenshot, a couple of the new features are visible there, namely, the much asked for Hint feature, which now allows you to get some help with words that you are stuck with (But be careful, you only have a limited amount of hints per level). Another visible feature is the Facebook ask for help feature, which enables you to quickly ask all of your friends for help on any particulary hard association.

Besides those there are also a number of other new features, new bonus words inside the levels, numerous starting points for certain levels such as X Marks the Spot, new speed medals that reward those who are fast at solving the levels, and more!

For those of you wondering when to get it I have one thing to say. Wait for Tuesday June 1st, as through a special deal with FreeAppADay.com it’ll be able for FREE on that day. So, be sure to mark June 1st in your calendar and grab it then, as well as telling your friends about it!

You can find the game in the App Store from here : App Store Link

Current Situation =)

by edi on Nov.27, 2009, under iPhone development

Just a quick update to those of you who are following my progress in the App Store.

Quickly said, things are going great. As I posted my previous post here, regarding the possibility of making money on the App Store, I was just seeing the beginning of my climb up the rankings (and climb in sales). As things now have moved along for almost two weeks the direction has been UP.

I’ve seen both the free version downloads and sales slowly climb, so that pretty much every day is a new record in terms of sales and downloads. Thanks to that I’ve also managed to rise in the rankings a bit, I actually just made it into the 3rd spot in the Word Game category in the US App Store, something I’m really proud of, considering that the number one spot is occupied by a game “some of you” might know, Scrabble… (That brand might just be a little bit bigger than the one I’m building with iAssociate and Associate This ;) ).

But no matter what, I do think I’ve got all the possibilities in the world to make iAssociate #1. The feedback I’m constantly getting is that people are loving the game, everyone is pretty much saying that they really like the game and the fact that it makes them think. So based on this I do believe that there is a really good chance to actually make something bigger out of this, something that will have a lasting appeal. And who knows, maybe iAssociate will one day be a household name, something that people come to associate to word association games. I do feel that the brand iAssociate is the ultimate name for these kind of games, especially on the iPhone. Also, Associate This is also pretty good in my opinion, I really like the way that name works together with theme levels, telling you immediately what the game is all about. =))

So, all in all, things are constantly moving forward, who knows, with some luck I might even manage to get some more publicity for this game, or the story behind it, one day, at least the review Erica Sadun wrote was a really good step in that direction, showing that it is possible even as a single developer to get some attention for your games.

If anyone out there is interesting in the full story behind iAssociate, please contact me, I’d be more than happy to share my thoughts behind it, how everything has started out from 0 and gone to pretty much 100 now during the last year.

Thanks to all of you who’ve made this possible!!!

P.S. I’ve recently created a Facebook page for iAssociate, if you want to keep track of the latest news then feel free to join it, you can find it here:

P.P.S The service provider for my server had some downtime today, the first I’ve experienced so far. They were down for almost two hours, so if you experienced any problems either accessing my pages or submitting your scores earlier in the evening then that was because of that. Hopefully that won’t happen again…

P.P.P.S More levels are on their way, not sure yet when they’ll be out though… in the meantime, if someone hasn’t tried to Movies or Girls levels in the form that they are found in the free Associate This version then feel free to try them out. Also, for those levels ANY comments on how to improve them would be greatly appreciated, as I intend to release them in iAssociate at some point. (Of those the Girls levels will require a lot of work until I’m happy enough to include it to iAssociate…) Anyway, these levels can be found here :

Associate This: Movies
Associate This: Girls
