Wait...What? Pocket God number 12 on the All Time Paid Apps list!

Apple is running a new promotion a it closes in on a billion downloads and on the front it has the list of all time top free and paid apps....and it turns out we're on it! We're quite shocked since PG has only been out since Jan 9.

Looks like you have a chance to win a macbook pro, or ipod touch and other stuff....so get downloading! And if you don't have it yet, download us of course!

Your Chance to Win

  2. wow, pocket god has done well!!! Also Allan...I just passed you on the leaderboards so I have more kills than you na na na na na I have more kills than you na na na na na, I just really love this feature but I think you should be able to search for your friends to see how theyre doing and I also think the ants should be able to eat the fish and I'm sure you could do a really cool fish skeleton!!!!! Can't wait for the next updates!!!

  3. Oh, come on, you act like its 'surprising' that Pocket God has done so well. Its too awesome to NOT have done so well, but it's still awesome for the recognition I guess. . . kudos, and keep up the good work guys.

  4. Hey the update is awesome and I want to know if you won't mind if I use your latest app icon as my YouTube profile icon? If you can email me your answer at powermad80@gmail.com

  5. I am so glad you guys got that! I still remember the first day I got PG. I was probably one of the very first people that bought it, and most of the reviews were like, "This app is so dumb! All you do is throw them in the water and throw them around!" and, "This app is GAY!" and other stuff like that. But I bought it anyway. The main reason was because you said you would constantly update it with more features, so I was like, "Really? Sweet!" Then, a couple months later, it's the number 1 paid app. Now? It's number 12 of the all time top paid apps! Congratulations to Allan and Dave. :D

  6. ah yeah, i'm really glad for the new update, and love every bit on it :D the sliding to change weather is back! woho!
    i hope you make the fish cookable with the lens in the next update. and as Alex F said that the ants should be able to eat the fish.

    i think i might have found a little glitch in this update; when you have a fish on the island, and start a hurricane. if the fish lands in the back of the island when the hurricane fades away, you can see it swimming back there (really cool btw). but whem the pygmy starts fishing again, he fishes on the front on the island, and is actually able to get the fish that is on the back side of the island. when the fish is parallell on top with the end of the fishingrod, the pygmy starts pulling and gets the fish (that has gone smaller for some reason) up at the end.

    srry for the long explanation, i did'nt really know how to explain it in the shortest way possible

    PG ROCKS!!!

  7. wow, congrats!
    I just remember when it came out and the reviews said it was boring. I thought I might keep on checking it out and was really shocked at how frequent the updates were! So it went from being hidden in the dusty corner of the app store to in the top five paid apps then on to the top paid apps of all time list! Now all I do on it weekends is constantly check your blog and the app store for updates.  Or crank my name up on my local top sacrifices list. I can't wait for the next few updates, especially "A New Home"!

    I really hope and really have assumed that the people at Bolt Creative enjoy what they are doing.
    GREAT JOB!!!

  8. GREAT JOB, GUYS!!!
    I can't believe you were able to hold the 1st place position so long and now your moving back up! I had an idea where the islanders depend on food to survive(which you could toggle on or off in the toolbar). You could also store cocunuts in the tiki head(so you'll finally have a use for him. Then a heat stroke would come and the cocunut tree would either die or just stop making cocunuts and all the fish would leave. So brig that you are god you give all the islanders food, they praise you, and everything goes back to normal (tree goes back to regular, fish come back)

  9. ummm if you go on your iphone/ipod go to the app store "featured" section, click on the "countdown to a billion" and it takes you to apple site. Then when its gets to apples website it shows how many people are downloading and stuff and click on the "20 all time apps" on your ipod or iphone it will then to you to the ITUNES STORE not the app store and will display the top 20, And I DONT SEE POCKET GOD ON IT, Noooo!!!!!!!! but then again i counted only 18 apps on the "20" all time apps page. What's going on?

    ReplyDelete
  10. that is super weird....but here's what i think is happening. if you notice the list doesn't match the list on the site at all. In fact. some of the list is from the Free App side, soo...the list is really their "featured" list of the top apps and not the actual list. Its mislabelled at the top....should be "Featured Top Apps -Paid and Free. just the usual Apple selecting the people they are going to help and who they are going to blow off.

  11. you guy rock i see that you were number 5 but now your number 2!!!! I think the new chat will help alot and one more thing the smoke is the volcanoe i not sure if i have just noticed but the smoke is really bad quilty mybee you could add alittle animation or better graphics please orther wise pocketgod rocks!!!!


    ps. What is your email??

    ReplyDelete
  12. hmnm..i see the smoke issue. Dave has been working on file size optimization to get the size of the app down and make room for new animations.... and some graphics have been adversely affected..I tried to remedy most them..but looks like the smoke slipped through the cracks. thanks for pointing that out.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Yeah I noticed too that when I start the volcano, even during when it is bursting, the smoke is still there it's not until after the eruption ends till the smoke stops

  15. Hey guys! Say My Name was submitted Thursday morning. now let's all hope that there isn't an unexpected delay!

  16. hey guys I'm super glad pocket god is doing well! I got this app when the "just give us five minutes" update came out. I was a little pessimistic about where this app would go, but when I saw y'all keeping you word about the updates I would always be as anxious as a kid at a candy store. I know how hard it is with fixing bugs and annoying apple getting in the way, but so far, I'm impressed. Keep up the good work!

    Also, I've noticed how screwed up the top 25 apps is. A 3 starred app is in front of a four and half star app! So if y'all start dropping on the charts, no sweat! It's all crazy anyways.

    Can't wait for future updates!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Yeh ive noticed that. In the UK bowman is second with 3 star rating and 159 reviews, and biggest brain app is third with 4 stars and 20 reviews. PG is fourth with 4 1/2 star rating and 446 reviews! How the hell does the top 25 work! At 1st i thought it was on how many reviews to your rating but if that is so PG should be in 2nd place! Anyone know how it works, cus i havent a clue. PG deserves to be higher

  18. Hey Dave, if you've submitted "say my name" does that mean you're already working on a new home" and when wil you post the "Dave Report" for it?

  23. I just bought this game and everyone seems to love it. However, i dont understand what the point is or what your supposed to do. can some one please explain it to me?
    Thanks

  24. UPDATE IDEAS:: SORRY I DONT KNOW WHERE THE SUGGESTION BOX IS SO IM POSTING HERE. PLEASE SEPARATE THE TOGGLE OF THE MAGNIFYING GLASS FROM THE ANTHILL SO U CAN USE THE ANTHILL WITHOUT THE GIANT MAGNIFYING GLASS SITTING THERE AND/OR MAKE THE ANTHILL (not the magnifying glass) A PERMANENT FEATURE ON THE ISLAND.

    ALSO MAKE IT SO THE SKY DOESNT MOVE BACK AND FORTH WHEN YOU MAKE A HURRICANE. THE CLOUDS CURRENTLY MOVE WITH YOUR FINGER WHEN YOU MAKE A HURRICANE. THANX

  25. i have a good idea we would love to see a giant squid jump ont he island and suck up all the islanders

    ReplyDelete
  26. Hey Ron. I totally want to do a squid. ugh...so many ideas so little time! David. Pocket God isn't really a "game" so much as its a interactive environment where you play the "god" that toys with an unsuspecting island society. It was conceived as an entertainment game that is funny and makes people laugh. HOWEVER, be sure to get the next update. Some people like the ability to rack up points and we are starting to add that. Eric....I hear ya...we are still trying to figure out how to keep sky scrolling and hurricane function. I'm not in love with the clouds moving back and forth either! Allan

    ReplyDelete
  27. hey, I've already noticed the lack of animations and I understand that it is for memorysaving.... the smoke in the volcano, the pygmys only standing to their left when they are eating.... anyways... I can't wait for the say my name and a new home.... and I KNOW the t-rex will be awesome:)
    I agree that the clouds moving while hurricane is a bit annoying, but I also see why, because I don't think it will be easy to remove that when you use the same movement to change the weather and to start a hurricane...

    PG ROCKS!!!!:D

  28. Bolt creative plzzz plzzz plzzz don't take away the scrolling for the sky i never have problems with that it is fine and anyway you should move the menu button to where the question mark was i always hit that!!!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Hey bolt, can u plz plz plz do an update that has different types of pygmies and sections of the island. like u could make the island bigger and we could make one section underwater and have a snorkeling pygmy. and we could make one section icy and have an eskimo pygmy. u could put one that looked more of the dinosaur times and have pygmies that r tougher and they have clubs. or a futreristic island that had a scientist pygmy. I hope u like my idea and how do u change ur name in open fient?? Cant wait for the update. PG rocks.
