The New and Improved Super Hearts: Double Deck Cancellation Chaos Version 1.2!

superhearts100round

Hi, Mom (and the two or so other people who play my games)!  I just wanted to let you know that Super Hearts: Double Deck Cancellation Chaos was recently updated.  So what’s this big update?

It no longer cheats!  Oops!  When playing in games where the jack of diamonds is worth -10 points, the AI would cheat and play that card at illegal times.  That sneaky ThumbSnail!  Who knew that he was really a ThumbShark?  Well, now he’ll have to beat you fairly.

This update has been applied to both the iOS and Android versions.

Calling All Disheartened Developers!

UPDATE:  Much thanks to everyone who has contacted me to include their app in my game.  I have already added your app to my background.  I’ve submitted my app for review and will keep you posted on the progress and when it will hopefully launch!  Thanks again.

In my new upcoming game Climby Charts: Buried Alive in the App Heap for iOS, you must battle flappy bird clones and one-star reviews on your quest to climb your way up the charts.

There’s a long way to go before I’m in the Top 100…

The background consists of apps that have fallen by the wayside, buried by the ever-growing mound of apps on the store.  Right now it mostly consists of my own apps and some fake, humorous ones I’ve tossed in.  However, I’m opening this up to other developers who are proud of their games but were not fortunate enough to ever be noticed (or hardly noticed).  Please see that TouchArcade thread for a lot more information if you’re interested in submitting your app icon to be included in Climby Charts.  Thank you!

ThumbSnail Studios is Dying

ThumbSnail is Dying

Unable to eat, ThumbSnail Studios is shutting down.

 

ThumbSnail Studios has yet to achieve its goal of making enough money to cover Apple’s developer fees plus a $3.49 frozen pizza.  It’s looking increasingly likely that this will never come to fruition.  Thus, ThumbSnail Studios is shutting down.  My games will be available until November 4th and then no more.

Furthermore, due to lack of interest, I will no longer be doing the weekly “Good Games Buried Deep” reviews.  It’s been fun finding and playing these games, but all future gems will remain lost in the ever-growing heap.  Maybe someone else can go digging for shinies.

Thanks to the few who have played my games and supported me.  I have one more game in the pipeline, but it’s more of a joke poking fun at the world of apps than something serious.  I’m hoping to have it ready for release by next month.

Super Sevens on Amazon: Last Chance for Discount

Super Sevens for Android qualified for the Amazon Developer Select program earlier this year. If you purchase this app on Amazon, they give you 60 Amazon Coins in return. Thus, in effect, it’s like the app is 30% off.

However, Tuesday (March 31st, 2015) is the LAST day this promotion will run.

So if you want to get a deal on Super Sevens for Android, act before Wednesday!

Download Super Sevens for Android on the Amazon Appstore

Here’s the notice from Amazon: “All apps qualifying for the Amazon Developer Select program prior to February 15, 2015 will continue to receive their mobile ad impressions, Amazon Coins, and AWS credits benefits through March 31, 2015.”
