Smashing Jelly Source Code
As many of you know Apple of late has gone to an automated system of choosing apps that they display in the new section of a games subcategory. This section is changed about once a week. From all that I have read in the blog posts, often times the first 1-4 apps in the section are actually hand curated by Apple employees. This means they have searched and picked 1 to 4 apps they think are worthy of being in the top spots.
You can see from the above image that this app was likely hand curated by an Apple employee and dropped into the #1 position in the New section of the Strategy Games subcategory. I believe what this means, is that they felt this was a solid gameplay and was worthy enough to let their users know about it. I am not saying this will happen with your reskin, my point is that this is a quality app, with simple yet frustrating gameplay that keeps your users engaged!
What do you need to do to make a successful clone of Smashing Jelly? You must be creative. Don’t just rush to put something out there that is going to blend in with everything else. I say be creative and in some instances, I suggest being controversial. Controversial can be really helpful because those are the apps that people talk about on Social Media. Talk on social media means free advertising! (How do I know this, well Spermy’s Journey is an app with a creative name that is controversial. I was the original developer and sold the app when it had 5 million downloads and was making $1000 per day. No advertising but social media was abuzz)

Details about the source code:
- Universal app for the iPhone and iPad

- In app purchases for Continues (this one is key for as many wanted this in the original Flappy Bird)

- Share your score on Twitter
- Share your score on Facebook
- Rate your app button on the menu screen
- Simple one touch gameplay

- Did I mention minimal images to reskin so the cost should be very low

I encourage you to give this a try and see how it does for you. Dig deep into your creative side, come up with an incredible theme and give it a whirl!

Graphics For Your Reskins
One of the hardest things with reskinning apps is finding the right graphic designer to create your graphics. Angelas App Services has some excellent artists and the best part is they will work on any of the source codes that I am selling. Head on over to their website and check out all their offerings. I use their services often for my reskins, so I can certainly recommend their services.
