Thanks Magneticat!

Yes, this is the first time I have ever localized anything. Still learning tons!

I can say that the localizations are helping so much! The Lost City has shattered all of Grisly Manor's records in every non-English speaking country.

Good point about the title. I will think about it!

Woah, stunning and hurray then!

Yes, I did not mean it to be a criticism, just something I experienced with the title. Maybe adding "the lost city" in the keywords of the app also in non-English country could help? But you know this kind of stuff better than I do.

I think also the idea of promoting the game with Grisly Manor was great. Once you reach the top of the App Store in enormous markets like Italy and UK, it means you are doing everything right.

Congratulations Joe. I just bought it, but have only previewed it so far. It is beautiful looking.

I am curious about your design approach. I see that your first one and Lost City are both for the iPhone, and you just let people scale up for the iPad. I see a little pixelation, but it's not bad.
Are you making one set of assets?
What resolution/model are you targetting? For retina, and then scaling down if necessary?

Congrats once again im glad your game is getting the success it deserves as I said in previous post I played both grisly and lost city and both are awesome. Im glad lost city is much longer then grisly It took me around 2hours to complete. Really looking forward to future games from you and Grisly part 2.

PS: Out of Curiosity about how many downloads a day do apps get once you are in Top 100 / Top 50 ect anyone know?

Your work is amazing and I really hope it makes all the money it deserves. It is also the proof that Corona SDK can actually produce AAA games, given the skills and enough time. Keep up the good vibe and thanks again for these gems. Loved both of them. Giuseppe

Hello Joe! Your game was recommended to me by my co-worker, and I really enjoyed it. The graphics and the atmosphere were wow, amazing. I have had not so much relaxing fun with a game in a while, and I am planning to play Grisly Manor in the next days.

I am a beginner to Corona, but we but I wanted to ask you a question: how did you manage to have those animations? Am I right assuming they cannot be video files but they are instead sprite based? I am really surprised by the quality of the game graphics and audio, especially considering the relatively small build size!

About the Android version, which devices do you use for testing?

Thanks and please keep on making these games!
