    I didn't want to ask this question elsewhere, because I will show, advertise, promote my app.

    But the question is: What do you think, can a game become popular, if there are hundreds of its kind? For free of course. I know, that you can pour a lot of money into marketing, and then something happens, but if if you don't want to spend, or don't have the money.
    It could be a case-study, how playstore lists the different games, and sometimes how unfair it is. Games with special, interesting features can sink forever, so for a 1000th clone it must be more difficult, if not inpossible to earn some popularity.

    So in my case the app is a minesweeper, Minesweeper Relax. It isn't a great task to code it, but I think the design is good, it has the general features and some funny additions, but this isn't the next puzzle king. I made it for learning . . . and not only coding and design, but marketing as well. And this marketing thing seems to be the most difficult. As I sad, I know where is the place of my app (or I hope), but it is a bit depressing to see, that some other minesweeper with less feature, less design has installs so high, I don't even hope to reach.

    Ok, I know, I have to move on, this is only a warm-up application, but I would like to know how did you feel when you made your first app, and what do you think about the chanses?

    Yes, I tried to add some small spice, and this idea seemd unique. Maybe this will be my signature in future games :)

    I have very little spare time this days. First I try to add some option to the minesweeper, then I think I will dive into a long tutorial course.

    Think of candy crush there are loads of apps which are of the same basis of it a bit like bejwelled and look at how popular they are :) so yeah you have a chance but not only that your app is amazing the design, the sound so your app will be a good hit.
    im keeping this game on my phone :)
    KUTGW.

    Agree with you. I think Sinusgamma has unique style in making a game : design, music, sound, screenshots, etc.
    I'm keeping this game on my phone too :)

    Add "push notification" is possible? so the old user aware about the newest update.
    Also, if i play with "landscape mode"...the squares are too small :(
