SteamPunk Hockey (click: itunes link) Central Planning have analyzed the ticker-tape count results from our new SteamCountometer, and now can proudly claim to have a population of players the size of a small city! We shall name our city – SteamPunkHockeyopolis!
46,000 62,000 68,000 99,000 new residents of SteamPunkHockeyopolis from nations around the world retrieved their game copy, meant entirely for their worldly pleasures, from complimentary partners Apple, OpenFeint, and Free App a Day (which keeps app ennui at bay!).
Several have left impassioned reviews of four and five stars which, truth be told, has made us blush with pleasure – the old guys in Accountancy notwithstanding.
In the spirit of the olympic celebrations, let us convey current scoring results for our new city:
Currently we are informed that elite Leaderboard contributers have numbered past 11,000 13,000 15,000 players 24,600, and a trophy must go to OpenFeint player ‘Brentyy‘ for his singular achievement of 1170 points in SteamPunk Hockey!
Clearly an athlete of the finest breed and likely our next mayor of SteamPunkHockeyopolis.
Editor’s note: Brentyy’s courageous score of 1170 OF points is presently bested by andyrdrgz520’s performance at 1251. OF player “MARLOW” is also closing fast with 1008 points. We may see a contention for the Mayoralty.
Editor’s update: new player pik11 has taken the lead from andyrdrgz520, with longtime player lostintheinternet closing in fourth place. The race for the mayoralty is intensifying at pace.
Editor’s update: SteamPunk Hockey players have taken it to the stratosphere with an OpenFeint top score of 5427(!) by Player 118062454. The new Mayor of SteamPunkHockeyopolis?
SteamPunk Hockey is holding the line on the Apple game charts, charting Top 10 in Games/Family/Free amongst 31 countries including Italy, Japan, France, Argentina, Germany, New Zealand, Russia, Peru, Canada, Australia, and the USA. The population of SteamPunkHockeyopolis is expected to grow rapidly over these next days.
In the Games/Arcade/Free category, SteamPunk Hockey is holding in the Top 30 amongst 37 nations including Austria, Singapore, UK, Australia, the USA, Mexico, Canada, France, Germany, Italy and Japan (at #2).
A more cosmopolitan place surely cannot be found on this good earth.
Looking to international representation across all categories, SteamPunk Hockey is charting Top Free Games at #4 in Japan, through to a precarious #49 in the USA. We have sincere hope our city will rally with new players to save the day and improve our scoring.
Lastly, let us look at global results. SteamPunk Hockey is positioned well on the Top Free (all applications) with Japan once again representing at #22, through to Italy at #44.
That is all the current news. More forthcoming as we restore boiler pressure in our amazing new contrivance, the SteamCountometer – and wrest the Pterotype from our eager journalist tangling up the typebars.
Update: Accountancy has had their way; SteamPunk Hockey has now returned to the original $0.99 favoured price point. Presently we think the old guys in Accountancy are pleased, in secret!
