Blackbeard’s Assault Reaches 20k Sales

Blackbeard’s Assault was released Nov 4th for the iPhone and yesterday, Feb 12th it has surpassed 20,000 sales.   Overall I’m pretty pleased with it’s success, it’s done about as good as I reasonably could have hoped.  Sure, there’s always those pie in the sky dreams about getting into the top of the charts and becoming the next app store millionaire but I’ll take this moderate success.

Although this isn’t enough to replace my day job, who knows would could happen down the road.  My sales have been slowly declining, but it’s still selling pretty well and has lasted much longer than I thought it would.

Here’s a pretty chart from the program AppViz that’s I’ve been trying out the last couple of days:


Update: Noel wanted some insight on the sales spikes.

Nov 15th: Lite Version Comes out
Dec 1st: 99c Sale
Dec 6th:  Sale Ends
Jan 1st: New Year’s App Blowout Increased Sales

  1. Congrats and thanks for sharing that data!

    Could you give us some insight on what hte spikes were? Nov 15, Dec 1st, Dec 6th, And Jan 5th?

    I’m going to guess that Dec 1-6 was a front-page feature on the App Store?


  2. Nope, Dec 1st was when my lite version came out and I had a 99c sale. Apple hasn’t been kind enough to feature me…. yet??.
