We had a very big day today, and a very important one for us too. (I updated my first post to reflect our news). Today we released our IP on the AppStore, Blaster X HD. It was a very long and hard road for us to get to this point, and we are very excited. I have been a member of this community for a very long time and I wanted this to be one of the first places to share the news. Thank you to all who have supported us and would like to support us in the future. As I mentioned earlier in this thread, I am posting at the point we are now, and will back-track to show how we got here, once things settle down a bit.
Currently, we are sitting at #2 in two different charts for New Paid Apps on the AppStore.

Want to show the World your skills? You can. Post your High Scores for all your favorite levels and see where you rank among the Worlds best.
UNIQUE ICON SYSTEM
Most every menu in our User Interface offers an Identifying Icon for selectable options, making sure that even if it is not your native language you can understand and have fun while you play.

We will try our very best to continue to bring innovative games that offer a lot of content, while listening to our fans in what they are looking for in fun and great games. Thanks Again!
WHAT WENT RIGHT:
We passed through Apple’s approval process with flying colors. Blaster X HD is currently at the #2 spot on two different Apple Charts. Everything is going smoothly so far - just a lot of marketing to do now.
WHAT WENT WRONG:
A typo that we found right in our Apple marketing screenshot, but I was able to fix it right before we went to “In Review” status. Visibility can be tough, so we are hoping the rest of the launch week turns out good.
