    Yeah, I am inspired by Chad Mureta and Allen Wong.

    Right now I am working at a much better app.

    I think you misunderstand what a need is. In the fastlane a need isn't something required for survival. It's really something which is NEEDED to solve a pain point in someone's life.

    I don't need Spotify to survive. I don't even need Spotify to enjoy music. I could in fact continue to buy individual tracks, load them into iTunes and enjoy them.

    But as soon as it came out, I needed it in my life. It solved many big problems for music lovers for less than $10 a month. Free even.

    So yes, entertainment isn't a survivalist need. But that doesn't stop it being a need.

    Well first off Angry Birds was released in 2009, so you're 8 years late compared to them. Second of all Rovio, the guys that made Angry Birds, released 47 failed games before angry birds. There was a massive process behind the result, they were also doing it when Smartphones were first getting popular.

    Now I'm not saying because you're late you can't be successful, but slapping a game together and just waiting for the money to roll in is ridiculous, you'll be buried in the sea of another million developers.

    I think you need an app that compliments a service to be successful now. I.e. Uber, airbnb

    I agree with what others are saying. The graphics look really crappy and boring. The screens are definitely not enticing me to pay 99 cents. What unique value is your game giving that would make someone pay 99 cents instead of playing all the high quality freemium games? Anyone can try and make flappy bird, candy crush etc., but if it's not new/better/higher quality, why would anyone make effort to switch, much less PAY?

    But kudos for putting some work in and actually putting something out there on the app store and getting feedback. I hope you make something really interesting someday!

    My value array as a (former?) gamer of all genres:

    Art: 0 (worse than atari graphics)
    Concept: 0 (Jump over obstacles? Your concept makes pong look like Homer's odyssey)
    Cost: 0 (you're charging upfront for this garbage? Maybe you'd make a buck or two if it were free with ads)
    Social proof: 0 (no reviews, reinforces my opinion that it's garbage.)
    Sarcastic twist: 0 (see the endless "simulator" games at your price point that people buy just to write witty reviews on. e.g. Bread simulator, shower with dad simulator, etc. Maybe that's what you should be shooting for)

    Conclusion: not worth anybody's time. Pure money-grabbing at its finest.

    Actually I am working at one of that kind right now. But before I push that app, I preferred to gain a bit of experience and publish smaller apps.

    Yeah, but money is like a cat.

    When you chase it, it will elude you.

    To attract it, you need to show value.

    You blatantly ignored this fact.

    The market and consumers determine if your business is viable.

    Apparently it's not good. In a world of selfishness, become unselfish.

    Provide a better game. Your game should make people feel better.

    First, it should be free.

    Second, it should have an incentive.

    Third, it should make people feel good while playing the game.

    The flappy bird trend is over. That formula isn't working anymore, especially in an over-saturated app market.

    Stand out, don't be the same. Chase needs, not money. Cliche but true.

    Just my .2 cents.

    You are right my friend, I have ignored this fact unfortunately. Thank you for reminding me this!
    1. I will make the app free, with no ads as well.
    2. On a paper I will think today at way to stand out and incentive.
    3. I will make sure that people feel good when use it.
    4. I will come back here and post my new work and listen to your new advice :)

    I kept my promise and made the app free (with no ads also), because I really want to provide value and not be selfish: Hot Piglet on the App Store

    1. The icon will remain the same.
    2. The graphics will be improved.
    3. The game will be more fun and make people feel good when using it.

    If anybody want's to point out something or want to give a feedback, it is welcome.

    Thank everybody!

    Personally I disagree with what a lot of people are saying. While I agree that the graphics look kinda bad, it's not horrible and it's not necessarily a game breaker. If the game play is on point and it's fun the graphics won't matter to a lot of people. There may be a market for people who have older devices and can't run the latest games. You could also market this as a simple kid friendly game that toddlers can play. What parent doesn't want an app to keep their kid's attention when they're sitting in a waiting room somewhere?

    p.s. is Objective-C really difficult? I've read a few articles saying it is. I'm thinking about getting into that or Swift. I've been teaching myself C# and Xamarin Forms but it seems pretty restricted as far as what you can do with graphics and animations.

    Downloaded it, played it.

    - the "best score" counter doesn't work

    - it doesn't seem to get harder the more you play, like a lot of those games do

    - the pillars move, like jump in height randomly, why

    - needs at least a quick tutorial, even if it's as simple as "tap to start, tap to jump, don't hit the pillars"

    - it isn't visually appealing. It needs to be pretty, and why is the pig jumping pillars? Why not fences or something?

    Love the fence idea. And what if you had a farmer chasing after the piglet, similar to those demonic monkeys from Temple Run?

    Well, if you love programming it is not. This is my personal experience.

    Before Objective-c, I worked 7 years with PHP and other programming languages. They all share common things, but the syntaxes and some things are different.

    Nothing hard my friend :)
