Gary and the Jetpack

Gary instagram ad campaign

So now that my Gary games have the ads working again I’ll be ruinning a series a video ads on Instagram just see how effective it is as aplatform for advertising mobile game.

My super clever 15 year old daughter put these together for me. Can’t wait to see how they go.

Gary updates

So Google updated their minimum target API for all apps on the google play store and I had until 1st November to get the update done.

Since I built the Gary games a fair while ago in order to do the update i had to update my version of Unity (Game engine) which was moderately painless but the ad plugin from google ads would not compile. In order to get the apps into the store before the cut off i removed all the ads with the plan to reinstate them once I had time.

Glad to say that today is the day when I finally had to the time to figure this update out and have just uploaded new versions for all 3 Gary games to bring them back up to their original functionality. That is to say that the reward video function is back and working and hopefully these will be approved and available in the app store in the next days or 2.

Where did JetPack go?

Hey Guys,

It was brought to my attention just before Xmas that Gary and the JetPack was not available in the Google Play Store.  “Ee gads!” I hear you cry.

Well, after a bit of investigation, turns out that my ad provider (Admob) collects the “Android Advertiser Identifier” and as such I require a privacy policy for my games to be listed in the Google Play Store.

I quickly generated a privacy policy using this tool -> Privacy Policy Generator then put the resulting policy onto this page here -> MoreDragons Privacy Policy then updated all of my store listings in Google Play Store to include a link to this page and resubmitted all of my apps.

As of time of writing, gary and the JetPack is still not available in the Play store but to be fair I did only resubmit everything 30 minutes ago. So i’m sure by the time anyone reads this JetPack will be up and running again.
