    i think it mean that you have only 210 instal from 1565 stand for people that visited you app link or your page 210/1565 = 0.13 (13%)
    i think it's below average why you don't try to change and make interesting screenshot (make screenshot for the most interesting scenes in the game/ the screenshot used i only see lines a cup and a dot) write a good description about your game (make people understand what you game is about also with the screenshot/ go and see others apps pages the popular ones geometry dash for example and see what they doing) search in google about aso (app store optimisation) and you will find a lot of suggestions.

    i saw a lot of people liked your game in the forum but for me don't take it personal i didnt like the color used in the game it's cold maybe that the reason that make people see the screenshot, leave and don't download the game however it can be several reason.

    in general make your app page informative and interesting as possible

    update: i just played your game is super fun and genius gameplay my problem is with colors try to added more color for enemies and character use different background to make the game more a live added more characters did you see color switch. bytheway i rated 5

    My thoughts.
    May not be the reason, but who knows.
    As west_badr said the colours are a bit dull.
    The game is really cool, i like it.
    Leader board would be good, but I'm not sure myself how to get the scoring to work when using check points. i have tried many times and coins always reset to zero when starting next checkpoint.... Hence why your leader board originally was not working.
    But some colours would be good,
    Maybe add some characters to unlock. you could attach coins to your objects to collect. Somehow?
    I have a pretty good idea what i would do, but i might use it myself LOL.
    As i said its a cool game but needs something a little more to make it standout. Make people want to try it.
    You could probably get rid of the checkpoints, and align the scenes to make players start from the start when they fail?
    Then the leader board would work.
    good luck with it.

    Your game if well setup could go viral, so my take:

    - Your game should be endless, so I will remove checkpoint as checkpoint works best with platform style games
    - Without checkpoint out, sort the leaderboard as its an important ingredient to a successful game
    - As per color, even though I agree with others, I still see games with similar color setup do well. So its your choice at the end
    - Make a good video demo and post it on social media

    Thanks for the detailed comments. You can be right about colors. But I thought simply would be good and interesting...

    Also leaderboard is not working I sent a new build to Appstore and waiting for it. There won't be leaderboard. Because in bb1.3.5 coins are reset every scene.
    I think store images not interesting and video would be good but there was no time to record video. In next build version I will add video.

    @sysads endless idea is perfect. But it can't be done in this game. Because I am using 1.3.5.
    @playsgames6666 I also thought multiple characters. But all characters must be circle. So there aren't variety of characters.

    @wesambadr thanks for suggestions maybe you are right colors are cold.
    You said different enemies with different colors was good idea. But I think it is not necessary. Because in this game there is one type enemy... Also different coloured rotating objects may be mix brains and looks complex.

    Anyway, thanks for the all comments. I will update my game as soon as possible.

    you can do endless with 1.3.5, you just need to stack the scenes, and the scenes will become random. if you are going to do more scenes so you have 100, it would be cool.
    and your leaderboard would work swell.

    Just played it @ozergul, great job man, really simply UI and addictive gameplay, congrats.
    At first glance I though the words read: J List rather than Just, it's because of that square ended U and I can see why you've gone for that as your ball falls into that shape in the game. A small detail, but just giving you my first impression. I found the sound on/off button very difficult to press (I'm on iPhone 5) and I would like to hear some music too, as I think it will lift the gameplay if you have a nice relaxing loop in the background. All in all, a great effort and I hope it does well for you.

    But I set "Next Checkpoint" into U shape. Scene passing is not possible in type of this game.
    Thanks for your comment. In logo, I wanted to use main game shape. And you are right about music. But I couldnt find good loop music. And buttons are only text. In next update I will fix its.
