When a game becomes popular, almost everybody becomes interested in everything related to the game, including source code.
Popular iOS games can make their developers a small fortune in the App Store and every game is not as successful as Angry Birds. With over half a billion iOS apps currently available, it is not possible for app store visitors to notice every app. However, one developer has decided to make money from his iOS game in a different way.
With his latest game yet to arrive in the App Store, indie game developer Adam Schwartz is looking to bring in some cash by selling the title’s source code on eBay.
Schwartz is offering the source code for both the free (ad-supported) and paid versions ($0.99) of his game Cannon Collision on the popular auction site. He is also ready to give all of the accompanying artwork and an hour of his own time to facilitate the transition. The auction would not provide access to his iTunes Connect account, however:
This listing is for the mobile application “Cannon Collision” and “Cannon Collision Free” available on the iPhone. The source code along with logos and everything needed to add the apps to your own account. This listing does NOT give you control of a current Apple iTunes Connect account. You will be given the source code and I will make my developer available for 1 hour to change the admob and greystripe ads on the free version to your account and to add the apps to your own itunes connect account free of charge. Once purchased, I will remove my apps from the app store and you own the sole rights to these apps. These two apps have been around for a few months but have never really been advertised. Cannon Collision is an extremely simple game that is very addicting. It uses Game Center to rank scores. I recommend you try both versions before bidding so you know how addicting the game really is.
The auction will be held in five days.It has already attracted bids over $200. That is not bad for a game struggling to make its mark in the App Store.
If you want to bid for this source code, you need to have your own iTunes Connect account to sell the title in App store. What price would you like to quote for the source code.
