    There definitely is interest. You are risking a lot. I have spend more than half a year making a platformer game that wasn't a success and it irks me how much more could I earn right now if I spend that time doing smaller games. But of course if you have a hit you will earn the money back in a month.

    And if it's not a hit you could probably reuse some of the assets or sell that game.

    Hey mind,

    Just noticed your server costs. We have real-time multiplayer game which is based on the same "same game at the same time" concept, with leaderboard at the end. Our backend is AppEngine too, but it's written in Java. While we're nowhere near 40k DAU (we have around 2.5k DAU now), our server costs are ~$50 / month. I'm not really sure why you pay this much.

    What we do have a problem right now is ad monetization - we're using AdMob and Amazon Ads. We have around 320k impressions on AdMob, CTR 0.62%, CPM $0.57 USD (99.99% fill rate). On Amazon things are better, 250k impressions, CTR 1.44%, CPM $1.33 (fill rate 88.35%).

    I understand you use MoPub, we were not yet approved for their marketplace.

    Anyway, perhaps we can help each other out. Just drop me a message.

    PS. The new concept looks really good - I would throw it on the market and iterate afterwards - we're a startup, so we try to be lean

    I believe Amazon's new App Underground would be the perfect monetization for Word Hero, if it met the Paid app requirement. https://developer.amazon.com/public/...ns/underground @mind do you still have users who play for hours everyday?

    hey... I haven't tried this game yet, however with the help of information available in between the lines of comments above, I have got a few suggestions for you; In the next version of program, try to integrate pauses to give your players a rest and influence them with ads there. You can also think about a major overhaul, by integrating a Facebook share link. Building a virtual store, within the game can help you too. Don't try to sell them anything but ask them to support your sponsors. Let them spend their virtual coins or money (score based) to buy more in-game features

    EDIT: Opsss.. its an ancient post ... I wish you can still read my VALUABLE Suggestions, Wish great luck ahead
