    I could rank the countries where DropZap 2 will be released based on how good they are as places to live. (I could use an official and highly respected ranking.)

    I could then release DropZap 2 in the app store to a new country every week based on this ranking.

    In a way, this would imitate the initial exclusiveness of Facebook.

    Would this be a good idea? Would it get much attention?

    Another idea is to reserve promo codes every release/update for people that I would like to try it.

    So I could have a web page up showing the list of names and perhaps people will be curious to see if they are on the list.

    Do you think this would get much attention for the game?

    brand new game? I was a fan of the original and eager to see what differences are in this sequel! When is the release date? For America anyway :)

    It will probably be released around end of October -- although possibly later for lower quality countries as explained above. Don't know how America would rank yet.

    DropZap 2 will have two shapes. Circles will behave as the squares do in DropZap. But it will also have squares, which also fire lasers and shrink, but they do not allow lasers to go through them. For example, when fired upon from the right, a square will not allow the laser to continue beyond it to its left.

    Hrm...this is a quirky idea...not sure how good you would feel if your country was last...haha

    You might want to release it in 3 or 4 MAJOR countries first with iPhone support...

    USA (ftw)
    Japan (HUGE cell phone market with the coolest phones in the world, but iPhone dominates smartphones, lots of app sites in japanese too)
    France
    UK
    Australia


    they're all decent (well actually, good) places to live too!
