Earnings and Statistics from my first Android Game – Bomb Rain
I had released my first Android Game, Bomb Rain is a simple reflex/arcade game, now I would like to share downloads/earnings and other statistics from Bomb Rain (my first game). The game got ~200x downloads (total), now let’s look at some country/android versions statistics:
Android usage (% version, data from Google Play):

Country map from Google Play:
The game has been downloaded 178x On Google Play (4-7x per day), on Amazon App Store it has been downloaded 31x (right now 2-3x per day), a record of the game downloads was 30x in one day (Google Play).
Total Downloads (Google Play/Amazon App Store):
What About earnings?
Unity Ads: $17.25 (Android Version)
Kongregate: $1.43 (1555 Plays, online version).
Chartboost: $0.27 (Android Version)
Total = $18.95
*I was using Unity video rewards ads + Chartboost full-screen ads + Chartboost reward video (if Unity Ads fails to load an ad, don’t get any ads). No IAP.
I don’t like games, which spam players with banners, full-screen ads, and IAP. The thing I hate most is auto-playing video ads. That’s why Chartboost got so low earn because in whole camping I showed 0x Chartboost ads. My favorite Ads are Video Ads played by users, I think they are a fine form of ads. The game had generated $18.95, but to withdraw this cash I would need some amount of cash first (like a $100 for Unity Ads). So, the game had earned $0. – cost of its production. So, I’m at minus, well, it happens.
Would I make today again Bomb Rain? Yes, even if this game would get again a very low number of downloads, earn nothing. When I was developing Bomb Rain, I had learned many things about coding simple games, Android Platform, and fixing Programming problems, I’m still learning how to program, I don’t count for any earnings right now, I got time. I had a lot of fun developing Bomb Rain.
From interesting things, in the top 10 devices, which had installed my game, 50% of them are Samsung, + many Huawei devices, and we got a one (in top 10) Xiaomi Redmi Note 3. Right now I’m focused on marketing Bomb Rain (I had learned a lot about marketing), I plan also to make the next game, it will be Idle Clicker (70% sure), but right now I focus on developing updates to Bomb Rain + marketing.
