We sent out a press release to a bunch of iOS review sites for our game and were able to get one on 148apps.com. Base on what people have said and Alexa ranking this is one of the top iOS review sites.
However, after being on the front page of the website for an entire weekend it probably only lead to 10-15 sales (at $1.99 per). Is this normal? Is it because our review is only 3.5 stars? Here is the review:
My partner doesn't think review sites are very important for selling a game. Everything I've read indicates it is the main way of getting the word about your game out there... but after this I'm confused. Should I bother trying to get more reviews?
