SaruTobi for Android - APK Download

SaruTobi removed from app store (temporarily)

Just an announcement
Apple removed the app from sale on the weekend over concerns users would be confused over the use of in game Bitcoins (not real) and actual real Bitcoin.
Mainly because there is an in app purchase that lets you buy the in game coins, Apple are concerned that users may think they are buying real Bitcoin, fair enough (even though it tells them they aren't)
I have had to fix this issue and the updated app is currently waiting for review and should be live in the app store soon.
Follow us on Facebook and twitter @mandelduck for updates on when the app will be live

SaruTobi Android released! The first working example of Blockchain based game items

We are pleased to announce the official release of SaruTobi for Android download
Similar to the iOS version you can earn bitcoin in 2 ways 1.) Monthly payouts, the games ad revenue is shared with the players at the end of the month 2.) Instant Tips, sometimes instant tips will be available inside the game
We'd like to thank Genesis Mining for sponsoring the instant tips in the game!
First working example of Blockchain based game items
indieSquare Wallet is a free counterparty enabled bitcoin wallet, meaning it can hold bitcoin and counterparty tokens.
Counterparty allows you to register assets on the Bitcoin blockchain, these assets/tokens can be used as game items. As they are on the blockchain these game items are not restricted to any one game and can theoretically be used without permission in any project.
Spells of Genesis is a upcoming card came in which all cards are blockchain assets
We have enabled the use of SoG cards in SaruTobi, holding certain cards will give you extra power and bonuses in game. All you need to do is hold these cards in your indieSquare wallet and link inside SaruTobi to use them.
We have also created out own blockchain game item NINJASUIT, which can be used in SaruTobi but we welcome other game devs to use this token in their own games
This is a first prototype step but we see huge potential in blockchain game items as they will allow players to retain value after the game has been completed.
Enjoy!

SaruTobi incorporates Counterparty! get bitcoin and sarutobi coin

Hi Guys
I would like to announce that SaruTobi has finally incorporated Counterparty via the IndieSquare wallet app
The IndieSquare guys have created a great tipping feature which aims to challenge the conventional ad revenue model. It's called "TipMe TipYou"
Basically if you tip the content creator (blogger, artists) Bitcoin they will tip you their counter party token
I am trialling this in SaruTobi
Players can optionally donate Bitcoin in the game and in return I will reward you with the SaruTobi Counterparty token.
You can download SaruTobi here and IndieSquare Wallet here
If your not familiar with SaruTobi it is an iOS game that rewards the player in Bitcoin.
Enjoy!

SaruTobi guarantees bitcoin for users in new tipping model!

SaruTobi is a free iOS bitcoin tipping game, players can receive bitcoins tips as they play paid out to coinbase, breadwallet or any bitcoin address!. Download here!
Previously the bitcoin was provided by a cloud miner, however as the difficulty increases the miner produces less and less bitcoin for players.
So we have also added a new model for tipping. Monthly Payouts
At the end of the month the ad revenue generated by the game is converted into bitcoin and shared between the players, the players who collect the most coins get the larger share, fewer coins equals smaller share.
Players can also see their current share and current payout value in the game.
In this model as the players are producing the bitcoin themselves by generating revenue viewing/clicking ads as long as they play enough they can get bitcoin.
We hope this new model will allow SaruTobi to attract more users and introduce them to Bitcoin!
Enjoy
p.s. There is not an android build yet, we are seeking funding in order to develop it, in the mean time checkout bitcoin aliens!

We have developed a bitcoin geocaching app called "takara"

Hi Guys
I'm Chris from MandelDuck, I created a couple of bitcoin tipping games on iOS called SaruTobi and Game of Birds.
We have just finished testing a bitcoin geocaching game called "takara" The app lets user drop bitcoin tips anywhere in the world however collectors must visit a location where bitcoin has been dropped to pick it up.
We plan to launch soon as beta testing has finished.
You can checkout a demo video of the app here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gpGK1JozTio
Our basic idea is to get people engaged in bitcoin via gaming as it is zero risk and requires no exchange registration, KYC ect
If you have any questions/criticisms or ideas I would be happy to answer them!

SaruTobi Update! (Sponsored by Xapo)

SaruTobi updated their app with a new game mode, but also a tether to Xapo for Bitcoin payouts.
You go to Xapo, and try to transfer to your usual wallet? Sorry, can't do that, unless you give us all you personal info.
While I'm sure Xapo agreed to fill up the pot, it sort of goes against the spirit of Bitcoin that we have to provide personal info for sending coins.
I know it's not a big deal, but it will be interesting to see this kind of practice in future, where you might be forced to use a particular wallet for particular services.

I hope this is just the start for Bitcoin microtransactions in gaming

Bitcoin, iOS and Apple Review: My experience and advice

Hi All
I have had a few enquiries from other iOS developers who want to add Bitcoin into their apps but are confused as to what Apple will and won't Approve.
I have had experience submitting 3 Bitcoin applications to Apple and have summarised those experiences and my feedback in a document you can download for free HERE or read below
I hope this will help other iOS developers create killer apps using Bitcoin! . . . . .
Bitcoin and iOS: Apple App Store Review Experience
I am an indie developer, I don’t earn a living off my applications and therefore would be appreciative of any donations for the information provided below. Donation Address (BTC): 32Bzce9bp6rYAFJTAcRn6X6ufeyw7JRSrz Change Tip: [email protected]
I am MandelDuck and I created 3 applications for iOS that integrate Bitcoin, below I have documented the experience I have had and the feedback I received from Apple. I hope it may be of use to other iOS developers wanting to develop Bitcoin applications.
Bity iOS wallet
The first Bitcoin app I got approved is ‘Bity’ a wallet that was approved at a time when Apple famously banned all Bitcoin wallets from the app store.
I had no conversation with Apple during its review process however I thought they approved it for the following reasons.
1. It didn’t store Bitcoins, it connected and used blockchain.info’s api. basically it was an interface, similar to visiting the blockchain.info website on your iPhone.
2. The user had to agree that they would not hold Apple responsible for any Bitcoin related problems they may have.
A few weeks after Bity’s release Apple allowed all wallet apps back onto the App Store.
In hindsight I have a feeling the Bity may have just slipped past Apple’s radar and they didn’t realise what it was or did.
NOTE: This app is no longer available, I removed it from the app store as there are much better and more secure wallets out there
SaruTobi Bitcoin tipping game
Initially I wanted to develop a game that would help promote Bitcoin, the first release just had Bitcoin styled coins but did not actually utilize Bitcoin. I had thought that there would be no point in integrating Bitcoin as Apple would ban it straight away, this is because Apple make it quite clear you can only use Apple’s in-app purchase framework to unlock or buy items inside a game. However it occurred to me even though Apple won’t allow users to purchase items with Bitcoin they had no rules about sending the user Bitcoin, (I guess why would any sane person create an app that instead of receiving money from the user actually sent it to them). I made the change and submitted it to Apple and after a week I got a phone call.
Here are the key points I got from that phone call
1.) Apple’s number one priority is to protect users.
True they like the in-app purchase as they get their 30% cut but if users paid with Bitcoin in the app how would they request refunds from Apple if the in-app purchase didn’t work or it worked differently than advertised etc? if Bitcoin were to be used in the future to buy in game items it would still be through your Apple itunes account, similar to adding a credit card you would just add your bitcoin wallet. (note readers with a Bitcoin debit card can add that into itunes and buy in-app purchases with Bitcoin).
2.) The game cannot promise or guarantee the user Bitcoin
This is why the app “Tips” in Bitcoin and I tell the user in the app that they are not guaranteed a tip.
3.) The game must not allow the user to buy Bitcoin
This was a tricky point, as I had to convince Apple that receiving Bitcoin was based on luck and that buying power-ups in the game (with the in-app purchase) did not result in the users getting more Bitcoin.
4.) The game is classified under Apple’s Gambling policy
This made app’s rating 17+ and automatically not available in certain countries, all this is handled in iTunes connect when you set the apps ranking.
5.) The app can’t be allowed in China
I had to manually remove China from the list of countries in iTunes connect. I think Apple may be confused here as Bitcoin is not banned in China? I mean there are Chinese exchanges? I think they probably mean Russia however they told me to remove it from China so I did.
6.) Disclaimer
I had to include a disclaimer in the app saying “Apple is not the sponsor of the Bitcoin”
After I met all those requirements the app was approved. A few months later it was suddenly removed from the app store, a week later I received another phone call.
Basically this time they had concerns that the use of the Bitcoin coin in the game was misleading to players.
At the time the game had in game coins that were styled as the Bitcoin coin, they could collect these coins and unlock power ups. There was also a “Buy 500 Bitcoins” button which was an in-app purchase that allowed user to buy 500 extra in game coins. There were also “Black Bitcoins” in the game, if the user collected enough of these then they could receive a real Bitcoin tip.
Apple said that user may be under the impression they were buying real Bitcoin, the app did tell them they weren’t but fair enough I can understand the concern.
Apple also said that depicting any virtual currency in a misleading manor was against the guidelines, I think they meant that users may think they were collecting real Bitcoin as they collected the in-game coins.
In the end I changed the ingame coins to Bananas, and the black coins to “TobiCoins” a SaruTobi styled coin.
So if you follow the advice above you should get your iOS application approved, having said that Apple do seem to change their mind and it may depend on which App Store reviewer is chosen to look at your app.
Game of Birds Bitcoin Tipping/Spending? Game
Due to all the experience I had with SaruTobi it was fairly easy to get this app approved, like Sarutobi the user can collect Bitcoin tips, however unlike SaruTobi the in-game coins in the app are still styled as Bitcoin coins and Apple haven’t said anything yet.
I want to see how far I can get Bitcoin integrated into iOS, as an Indie developer I can take risks like this. I have submitted a version of Game of Birds that kinda lets the user pay for in-app items using Bitcoin. I have made the items in the app free,the user is then prompted to optionally “Pay what they feel like” using Bitcoin. Technically Apple should allow it as the user is just donating/tipping the developer in Bitcoin which is allowed in iOS, this will allow user who would like to purchase items with Bitcoin purchase items. I’m not sure if this will get approved and at the time of reading it may or may have not been, but I hope it will make Apple think more about Bitcoin integration and help convince them to adopt Bitcoin gracefully rather than fight it.

SaruTobi: Automatically donate a percentage of your bitcoin earnings to charity!

We are pleased to announce that users can now donate a percentage of their bitcoins earnings to charity. Users can select the percentage they'd like to donate in the app and each month that percentage will be sent to thewaterproject.org, supplying clean water to African communities.
For those not familiar with Sarutobi, it is a free iOS app that converts the monthly ad revenue in to bitcoin and returns it back to the players, the more you play the more ad revenue you generate and the more bitcoin you can receive.
We believe this is a first for bitcoin and gaming, a fully sustainable risk free way of earning small but modest amounts of bitcoin each month as well as also using bitcoin to help the less fortunate.
You can download the app for free here
An Android version is coming very soon!

Bitcoin tipping app "Game of Birds" Launched!

In Nesteros the Iron Bank pays out in Bitcoin!
Hi all i'm Chris of MandelDuck and I have just launched my new Bitcoin tipping game "Game of Birds" free on iOS.
Download
Like SaruTobi you can collect in game Bitcoins, if there is enough Bitcoin in the game wallet it will send you a Bitcoin Tip.
Make sure to tweet #gameofbirds on twitter in the next 48 hours and get a tip from Cryptiv.com
We have teamed up with Cryptiv.com who are running a competition to celebrate the launch, all you need to do is design a baddie to be added in a future update the winner receives 400,000 Bits!
Enter
Just to answer some questions before they are asked
1.) Currently you enter your email in the app and the tip will be paid out via coinbase, the only reason why this app can send Bitcoin is due to sponsors such as Coinbase, but in a future update we will be looking at allowing users to add regular Bitcoin wallet addresses.
2.) The game is for iOS only, I can only code iOS but I would love to make an android version if I get some funding and time.

First mobile game to integrate Counterparty!

SaruTobi game now rewards SARUTOBI counterparty token holders with in game bonuses!
Counterparty is a great Bitcoin 2.0 application that allows people to create their own secure tokens on the Blockchain, perfect for use in games and blogs where the content creator can use these tokens to reward followers.
SaruTobi has recently integrated the counterparty token SARUTOBI coin into the mobile game. Players who donate to the app receive SARUTOBI coin in return, holders of SARUTOBI coin receive extra in game bonuses, items, power ups etc
This offers players an incentive to donate and content creators an incentive to add new features.
This token rewarding concept is being spearheaded by IndieSquare Wallet and will soon be open to the public, in the meantime you can check out the IndieSquare Wallet app.

"Game of Birds" GoT parody app that rewards players in Bitcoin, cloud miners?

Hi all
I would just like to announce that our latest app Game of Birds is currently being reviewed by Apple and should be live soon.
It is a GoT parody puzzle app that like SaruTobi will reward the players with Bitcoin.
We will probably be funding the app with a cloud miner, Hopefully the kind folks at genesis mining will donate one
However in the case they don't which Cloud Mining services offer the best payouts?
Thanks

SaruTobi: Genesis Mining now supporting the Pot!

Goodnews everybody
We are pleased to announce that Genesis Mining have kindly set up a cloud miner to keep the game Pot full!
This means the Pot will have Bitcoin added daily and there will be more tips for players, In fact I have just increased the tip amount.
I think Bitcoin in gaming is a great way to get Bitcoin into the hands of users without them having to use an exchange, it is also a lot more fun than Bitcoin faucets.
So please check out Genesis Mining and if you interested in mining Bitcoin they offer a great range of options.
If you haven't played SaruTobi before make sure to check it out on the iOS app store Download (Android version in development, support the development on our Patreon)
