Recently I published a game in play store and it is receiving large no of downloads (10k per day) and some great reviews…
The problem is that some users (2or3) are giving it very bad review and saying I should should not be making games like this since it involves the death of an animal!!
I want some honest opinions on this… Anybody had any similar experiences??
I am worried that google might consider it too violent too…but then again, most of the game in action and arcade involves the death of at least one species…
So here is the problem: if you put another animal in there that people don’t care about (eg: a rat), you would not have gotten the downloads. Heck, I bet some people even download it JUST because of those 1-star reviews.
I doubt Google will ban your account. Worst they would do is take down the app itself.
Apps that contain mild cartoon or fantasy violence must be rated low maturity or above. Apps that contain realistic or intense fantasy violence must be rated medium maturity or high maturity, and those that contain graphic violence must be rated high maturity. Gratuitous real violence is not allowed in Google Play.”
haha thanks for trying out the game…anyway i received the following mail from google y’day:
