Spazzle Takes Off in Asian Countries

This morning I was entering our download information for Spazzle into the January spreadsheet and noticed something very different happening with our numbers. Normally, our percentage of international downloads is about 21% (see dates 12/28-12/31 in the chart below). But for the period 1/1 through 1/10, I noticed that our international downloads accounted for a whopping 52% of our downloads! Hm, this required further investigation…

As it turns out, there has been a big spike in downloads coming from Taiwan. The following graph shows just the Taiwanese downloads for the same time period:

We checked our app rankings in Taiwan, and sure enough, we’ve climbed the charts to the #21 game overall and the #1 free game. We’ve also seen increases in other Asian countries, although the bumps have not been quite as dramatic as in Taiwan. We’re not sure what has caused the sudden interest in our game in the Asian markets, but we sure do appreciate the business from the Taiwanese customers and hope that the folks on the other side of the world are enjoying the game!

How an iPhone game can make a small difference…

Recently I received an email that contained a touching story about how one of our iPhone games, Spazzle!, has made a small difference in the lives of some folks who need regular physical therapy. With her permission, I am sharing the story with you. She wrote:

“So thought you would be interested to hear this – I just got Spazzle a few days ago. I have been playing a lot. Ok that’s the background.

“My mom (69) has MS and has had a flare up recently meaning I need to be spending time there to help out. Well we were waiting for one of the visiting Physical Therapists to arrive and I showed her my “new game” to like distract her. She thought it was cute and asked how to play. So I let her play around with it. The PT came in while she was playing and asked what game she was playing so she showed her. The PT was REALLY impressed and said that was a great game to help with her finger movement! So SHE is going to download it to have it as a distraction for patients she thinks can benefit from it!”

Spazzle has had almost 1 million downloads to date..

But this is my favorite one. 🙂
