I have written a game on windows phone in c#

I have written a game on the windows phone here.

I would appreciate it if some more experienced developers could give me some tips on how they market their apps. i.e How do they get noticed ! , Social media ? how?

Also if we want to release a game on Windows/Apple/Android - Is there a fast platform that can be used ( that lots of others are using) to do this ? I prefer not to write the game three times , but to sacrifice a little performance.

    Very nice looking game. One of the best ways to promote is to get some positive reviews. Even write your own 5-star review touting its features but also note in the review that you are the author. Get your friends and family to review the app.

    Your link showed me your game in the UK marketplace and being in the US, I could not get the game from that page. I clicked the link to check in the US marketplace and it did not find it. Make sure the game is available globally.

    Create a web page specifically for your game like at to promote it. An example for one app I did:

    Get a Twitter and Facebook account for the game and post regularly to them to maintain and promote interest.

    Those are a few good ones. Good luck,
