A big thank you to Ludum Dare and the October Challenge 2013. My hastily made game has shown me the feasibility of the freemium/ad model on mobile.

The goal of the challenge was to create a game within the month, release it, and make a $1. I had hardly managed that, but since the end of the contest I have seen $480.94(40,786 downloads) in ad revenue on Android, and $260.08(17,797 downloads) on IOS, which was only released a week ago.  Ios, so far, seems to be a more profitable platform for such a game. We will see as time goes on.  I currently use Admob and Chartboost to serve smartbanner and interstitial ads to monetize my games.

While improving the game is on my list of things to do, I believe its clear that increasing my Unity game portfolio will drastically increase my ability to generate ad revenue. I already have a second flight sim in the workings among other projects that I hope to bring to IOS, then Android, and then finally OUYA(no ads, in app purchase model only).
