He recommends other developers to "experiment and iterate" as much as possible. Blast Monkeys was developed because he was experimenting with different cross-platform app engines. He found out about Corona SDK which made it easy to develop a physics based game. He also released the game on Android a week after releasing it on iOS and noticed that the game was really taking off on Android. If he hadn't experimented with Android, the game may not have been as successful as it is today. Promotional Methods That Worked Being featured as a Free App of the Day app lead to over 100,000 downloads. They even tried Facebook Ads. The key is to test different platforms to see what is working.
