My game BotSumo that I made for Android has been on the Android Play store since January, and has been downloaded now over 12,000 times. Most of those people downloading were from the US, which was to be expected, but weirdly it found secondary audiences in Russia and Brazil, despite not being translated into their native languages.
Many of the reviews below were written in other languages, translated into English by Google, sometimes with hilarious results
This one made me laugh, I assume they mean “bored”?
Many have asked for new features, like new levels, playable robots, and a single player mode:
This is a nice complimentary one which asks for multiplayer, something that I’m not planning right now just because anything multiplayer is a LOT more hard work. Also I do quite like that you have to play with someone you’re sat next to, it can get very competitive! But, I dunno, there’s always room for expansion and one day I might consider it, if I find a way to do online multiplayer easily.
Some though, haven’t been so complimentary:
I think this last one is complaining that the filesize is quite large, which I can understand. Exporting even the most basic game from Unity is about 15mb, which I assume includes all of Unity’s engine. But that does seem quite large, especially if you think the original Elite game was less than 1mb, and included a map the size of an entire galaxy.
Overall these people commenting have voted the game 3.9 out of 5, which is actually quite remarkable for such a simple game, I’m actually surprised that it got so many 5/5!
