[prMac.com] Saint Louis, Missouri - Global Whirl LLC has announced that its 14 year old's game, Stick Run, hits #1 in 3 countries. Stick Run reaches top charts in Argentina, Chile, Finland. Michael Naber, CEO of Global Whirl LLC, is 14 years old. Over the past few months his games have been at the top charts on a global scale. At their peak, they have reached #1 in Argentina, Chile, and Finland. Currently, his game hovers around the Top 300 in several countries.
Michael's first game is called Stick Run. It features a stick man that runs from side to side based on the tilt of your device while avoiding blocks. The game is easy to play, and it has Game Center integration, so playing against friends is simple.
Stick Run had thousands of downloads from the iOS App Store while it was free. Now that it is paid, it receives around 50 downloads a week at 99 cents each. Michael found out something that is essential to making a great game. Easiness to play. Most game sessions are from spontaneous gaming and usually don't last for long periods of time. Stick Run contains that element of one-tap-then-play that makes the games everywhere so much more enjoyable.
"Having a solid interface is key in making a game. If someone isn't able to understand the game in 30 seconds, then they probably won't use it again." says Michael. "The first 30 seconds is the most important time to connect with the user."
