    Yep, enjoyable. Not as simple or clean (some would say basic) as the first game that it clearly follows on from, but a nice game nonetheless.

    It's a great little game although I was just playing the 'sandbox' version and was rather dissapointed when it forces you to end!

    Good effort, the original was a classic. Hope you see some reward for the investment soon.

    thanks Guys,

    yep I hope my investment pays off, I've been working hard on the the arcade scene almost full time since being made redundant by my ex-employers.

    And now I'm a moderator of arcadem media.and getting paid for it around 90 squids a month.

    When the arcade earns a decent crust, I'm going to relax a little and learn to develop flash games myself. And the first game I'll create will be specifically for the acorn forums (seeing as Admin pointed me in the right direction).

    Jeewhiz: $1900 (if your reading this wifey I'm only kidding.)

    If you guys are thinking of buying a game you can either bid or buy off the shelf. prices range from $200-$10000.

    Firestars

    by game sponsership and cpm ads my sites plastered all over the game so when anyone clicks on the flasharcadegamesite they go to my site where they can enjoy themselves and thats when my cpm,adsense,ads,affiliate ads kick in.

    The ingame advertising is Mochi and when the game traverses the web the more its viewed the more it earns me. So far this morn its earned me $3, days not done yet and theres 6,000,000 arcade sites out there and I've only touched 8.

    uglygit do you find the games attract inbound links or do you need to hunt them out yourself?

    well when peeps like the game they bookmark the site in blogs,stumbleupon etc.
    When I released the game I asked the developer to lock the game to my site and after a couple of weeks I released the unlocked version.

    Suze,

    the splash towers are the ones that cost 450, if your finding that part hard wait till you experience 'showdown'.

    OK - so I've now scored over 1M, but forgot to change the default name!! Also just under 1M on my name!!

    Showdown is a joke!!!! Completely indestructible!!!! I had 4 or 5 of the 1000 ones on full strength and speed and they didn't touch it! Can it be harmed?

    And, before anyone complains - OK, OK, so this is a domaining forum, not a games one... I'll stop playing now ;)

    Suzi

    It can be done, but you have to be really quick and build your money towers as soon as you can.Buy more towers upgrade them and THEN slowly get rid of each money tower and replace with a tower. I've not done it but the developer has and that's what he said. lol I can't even get past 400,000.

    your right suze shouldn't you lot be making moolah?
