Google Adwords – what a joke it is!

20 04 2011

I am shocked. Really. Seriously. Few weeks ago I created an ad in AdWords for our newest game – Avalon Legends Solitaire. Of course it had to be approved, which already ruined whole thing. It takes weeks to approve adds and makes the whole thing of tweaking your ad impossible, unless you wish to spend ages on it.

Today I received email from Google that my ads are disapproved. The reason:

Gabling Certificate Required

What? What the hell? Do I look like casino? Here’s my ad:

Avalon Legends Solitaire
Restore the Deck of Nature and save
Avalon. 200 hands. Free trial.

I guess that’s the last time I use Adwords, unless until they seriously improve their service. Too bad, as working with adwords was a good way of improving your ad copy before going “world wide”.

Exciting times – Avalon Legends Solitaire release

19 04 2011

Releasing new games is exciting and stressful at the same time. We “just” released Avalon Legends Solitaire – few weeks ago on our site and now as 30-days exclusive at BFG. This is our first exclusive and I keep the fingers crossed. Hopefully it will be our best selling game.

Having the game released as exclusive at BFG gives a bit of stabilization for me. There’s no rush to reach all the portals at the same time, no need to prepare 10 builds for each of them. I can slowly get ready for release on other sites.

This release is also our deeper jump into Facebook. For long time I try to avoid this medium, but at the end of the day I thought, that even if I don’t like it, there might be people over there that want me to communicate with them through Facebook. We will see how it goes. Anyway, I would appreciate if you like this idea and click “like it” button for our FB page :)
