SAN FRANCISCO - April 16, 2014 - PRLog -- From the first bean drop to the final soup creation, BouncyBean delivers casual, yet addictive gameplay. A cross between Pachinko and Pinball, players drop a bean and watch as it bounces its way around “Sky-Kitchen,” collecting soup ingredients and bouncing off of fruit. Hit special beans to launch your bean in a new direction.

Unlike most ad supported apps on the market this game offers more than the simple “pay to remove ads” option. BouncyBean lets you tap your way to a completely ad-free game!

The Poor Ugly Dwarf implementation of Tap-To-Own allows players to touch an ad and play ad-free for thirty minutes. After 50 ads have been touched all ads are removed permanently.

“Of course BouncyBean allows a player to purchase the app outright.” says Nicholas Murphy, COO of Poor Ugly Dwarf. “But we thought that approach alone was too limiting. So we are employing the Tap-To-Own monetization model in our first game. This model opens a new path for players to purchase a game without spending any of their own money. Let the advertisers fully pay for their game. It is our way of passing a slice of ad revenue directly to the player.”

Inspired by the writing in the latest book by Jaron Lanier ( ‘Who Owns The Future’ ), the Poor Ugly Dwarf team fashioned their Tap-To-Own ad model in such a way that app costs do not have to be the sole burden of the player. With this model, a slice of every ad they touch is returned to the player and, once a given threshold is reached, their game is free. Free of ads, free of purchase, and free forever.
