It has been exactly seven days since Turbo Prop for Android, iOS, Windows Phone, BlackBerry, and Amazon Kindle Fire went live. This is a status update in regards to downloads as well as ad earnings for my first Unity3D game.
Monetization is desired by game developers and standard app developers alike. For the developers that would like to keep their work free to download, in app advertising is often a good choice.

When it comes to computing, not all devices are created equal. An action intense game that runs at 500 frames per second on a computer may only run at 12 frames per second on a mobile device. To maximize your frame rate across all platforms it is very important to use your game resources efficiently.
One of the best things you can do for your game is to use object pooling. This conserves resources by recycling a pre-defined set of objects rather than dynamically creating and destroying them as necessary. (more…)

The easiest method to have the frames per second display is to create a prefab that you can recycle across all your game scenes. (more…)
