Zombie Hunter Tower Defense Game Now Available in Free Version


Smarter Apps has recently released a free version of Vampire Hunter, a tower defense game in the style of Plants vs Zombies. The free version of Vampire Hunter gives you two levels to try so you can get a feel for what the game is like. If you like the game, you can always upgrade to the paid version which has 45 levels. Smarter Apps made some pretty big updates in terms of levels to its Angry Farm title, so they may upgrade the 45 levels in Vampire Hunter too. Overall, it’s a good investment.

Estimate: Over 500,000 PlayBooks Sold to Date


There is a lot of talk about how the PlayBook is doing in the market, especially given the rumor that production has been slowed. The thought is that slowed production means there is a backlog of unsold inventory. Measuring the number of PlayBooks sold through the download numbers of a free and popular app seems like an accurate way of predicting real sales and that’s just what Eric at Ebscer has done. More after the jump.

PlayBook Sales Estimated at 429,000 Based on Free Game Downloads



There’s a lot of talk about the PlayBook sales and the issue many had was when Balsillie used the word “shipped” versus “sold”. Estimates on PlayBook sales have been as low as 200,000 and many are curious just how many have actually been sold to date. The problem with these estimates is that they’re not based on anything verifiable but rather based on gut feeling and other reports that also don’t carry any real numbers. Ebscer, developer of the very popular free PlayBook game Pixelated, estimates PlayBook sales at 429,000 tablets. According to Ebscer, “this estimate is based on a lot of assumptions, and guess work but is based on the number of downloads of the free game Pixelated. However, as Pixelated has remained one of the top 10 most popular applications on the PlayBook, I feel that I have better numbers then most people to base this guess on.”

We would agree that basing sales on a free game is a good starting point and many analysts would do well talking to developers rather than retail outlets and supply chains. With a group of very popular developers, you could get an accurate reading of exactly how many PlayBooks have been sold.

Note: these numbers come from a post dated June 15th, 2011, so numbers will have increased since.
