It's was very hard and almost impossible if you don't have at least a small marketing budget. I am making this thread to help developers learn.
I want to stress that all my marketing was free. I didn't use paid advertisement.

Deciding what I am going to make

1) I decided to make a platform game that had very simple controls, anyone can understand how to play it without instructions.

2) I decided to use some cartoon images that, almost all I made myself. There is no some "Complicated graphics".

3) I made the game easy enough so that a gamer can play it without instructions.

Before Launch

1) After I finished the game I didn't release it to the google play store , that would equal a fail. I opened a small community in Google+ and collected some people that want to hear when I release the game to production.

2) I posted on facebook groups screenshots about my game that going to be published. I did it in 5-6 groups and I spend on it 3 days.

3) I went to some games forums and also a create a post and trying to make people waiting for this game to be published.


1) Launched my app on Google Play , posted on facebook and on Google+ that its finally arrived. And here comes the numbers:

After one week my app got more than 10,000 installs!

And now my game has 46,000 downloads at Google Play!

And I am still fighting to get more downloads. Hopefully I can reach higher but for last couple of days the downloads just decreasing Any questions ask away.

Very nice!

How many installs are you getting daily now? Is it still rising or already slowing down?

Now I am getting daily 80-100 installs at the "best days" I got 2000 downloads a day.
