I had stumbled upon deidein’s blog while looking for reviews for a different game. His ‘About the Author’ page instantly struck a chord – he’s in his 30s, works in tech, husband, dad, likes Android. Pretty similar to me So I asked him if he’d like to review my game. Well, he did, and the first review didn’t turn out so well The game was crashing a lot, and that left a pretty poor impression on him, as it should. I had just started to realize that my crash reports were indicating a couple of high-frequency crashes, so I decided that I needed to do a good bug fix update. I also started up a conversation with deidein, getting his input on how the game could be better. I didn’t implement everything he suggested, but it was all good advice.
I uploaded a new version with the changes, and asked deidein to take another look. Here’s his updated review. I think he did a pretty good job of covering the essence of the game. And the issues that he points out are definitely valid ones, that I plan to address, time and budget permitting
