I don't have an iPhone, but I'm curious about the pricing model you've gone for here. Is it 99 cents for the app and they get the extras free or does the app cost just stop the ads?

Bumbledore on iOS cost 99 cents USD. For your buck you get zappy and no ads. The Android in app purchases of the Staff of Skulls and Henry the Wise are not in the iOS version yet.

We have taken down Bumbledore to do a re-launch in hopes of gaining more traction.

I downloaded the beta test just now. In the beta test have u made the add ons free to download?

I have a jailbroken iPhone with a tweak meaning you can download in app purchases for free if the app does not verify the app is registered to the users itunes acc.

edit: if they are meant to be payed for (in the beta version) then the tweak bypasses that.

For "Bumbledore" you get zappy for free... there are no other helpers.

For "BumbledoreFree" you can purchase zappy, staff of skulls and henry the wise and shows ads if you haven't made a purchase.

So which version are you talking about?

Hey Karl, if you guys are looking more attention to be given to your app, have you tried submitting it to the multitude of app review sites? Here's a good bit of info on some great sites to try to get app reviews on:

http://maniacdev.com/2010/02/iphone-app-review-sites/

I might also add to that list MacStories. They have quite a decent following and they tend to write in-depth reviews.

I get a message stating that Bumbledore isn't available in the Hungarian App Store. Do you have any control over which App Store has it and which doesn't? 'Cause I could download the Android version just fine.

The two stores are ran by separate competing companies with very different ideologies of business. An app appearing in one side's store has no bearing on it's appearance in the other side's store.

I see you understood my question well :P
I was asking why Bumbledore isn't available in the Hungarian Apple App Store, because - in comparison - it is available in the Hungarian Android App Store, so I see no reason for not allowing it in my region.
The US. and Hungarian Apple App Stores are both run by Apple.

I did understand your question well. Did you not understand my answer? Perhaps in simpler terms, Android != Apple. Google's market allows for quicker app delivery, whereas Apple's market allows for greater control of software.

Yes, we've delayed the iOS release to set up some promotions. Bumbledore will be available on iOS (in the US, Hungary, and everywhere else) soon -- still working out the details.

So I bought the game and I have the tester version. Do you guys want me to play the testers version or the actual version.

My suggestions for this game are:
1. Add more story to the game. You don't need a bunch of it, just in between areas. Like Angry Birds.
2. Have a toggle for game sounds on or not. I usually listen to my own music when playing a game. Not hating on the music or the sounds at all.
3. Add a game mode like endless enemies. Have them come in waves and in between waves add a time where you can buy weapon upgrades and such. This doesn't have to be implemented, it's just a suggestion.
4. Add achievement rewards. I like how there are a bunch of achievements but you should have some rewards such as changing the wand skin or the bee wand.

1. Yea we want to, we struggled getting enough art in time for the Android launch.
2. Main screen->options you can turn sound/music on or off. From with in a game click pause (top left) then u can toggle sound/music on or off (bottom left buttons that look like a speaker and a musical note).
3. We had thought about adding a mode like this with the Henry the wise in app purchase upgrade but that feature has been cut for now.
4. Hmm that would be neat.

Awesome! Auto5star
Ideas to (IMO) improve bumbledore:
I'ts great that you have achievements, but they would be more "rewarding" if they were equipped with game centre. Game centre rewards players with achievement points, and rewards s different amount of points the harder the achievement, like XBOX360 achievement points or PS3 trophies. You could also add (like many other games) your players rank against every player of the game, and you could add other things to compare with friends and whatnot.

Make an option to remove the aiming line for your weapons. It would be fun to try and beat the levels without having the computer "aim for you". It would simply add another skill dimension to the game.

I would love to see online play in some way equipped. This may seem ridiculous for a game like bumbledore, but one mode of online play would be too random online players on the one team,both shooting at enemies. The person who scores the most points by the end of the game IS WINNAR.

A whole different mode, "survival mode", with endless enemies coming through until the player dies. You could also much easily compare High scores with yourself or with the online world. Of course, in this mode the player would have unlimeted spells. I though about what weapons would be used in this mode, and i have used my non-chinese mind to devise a solution. The player would chose two weapons, and throughout the whole mode all he would have would be example fireballs and grass.

That is all i have to say. Omg typing long messages on the ipod takes ages.....
gtg continue watching my australian sports that none of you americans or europeans care about.
Thanks for your consideration,

xyao

use lightning bolt on the group of 4 wasps when they are above the firefly's. Hit the left most wasp first. It should chain wasp->wasp-wasp->wasp->bottom firefly.

Nice work shrode! Hoping to add more levels eventually, but no specific plans just yet. In the meantime, may your bowel movements be swift and clean.
