TekGoblin: A 14 year old in the comfort of his own home has created a very popular iOS game. His name is Robert Nay and his game is Bubble Ball. Bubble Ball allows you to put together different pieces to get your ball to the goal.
and they said games are no good for you
Obviously they are for this kid.
That SOB is probably making more than I am. I wish I had time to learn to program and create games. I really do.
@HolyOrangeCows nah, the game was free. He gained a lot of popularity so his next game will probably bring in a lot of money. If a .99 game sells 500,000, I'm not sure what apple takes but he'll probably get at least $200,000. I wish I knew code....
i looked into that bs. you need to pay apple 100$ a year and have a mac. FUK macs, im not spending 1000$+ for something thats worth 400$ in pc form
@AmazingBrian Apple takes 30% of the top
He`s a butterfly.
I guess he showed all those NAYsayers. *instant rimshot*
Yet another iOS game that rips off of a well-established flash game.
What the hell. This game isn't original at all. In fact there has been a better app on the market for ages. This kid just copied it and put it online for free. This is why I hate it when little kids make stuff. It always copies heaps from others and is usually crap in comparison. http://www.dothehudson.net/... Not only that but it's EXACTLY THE SAME AS THIS GAME http://itunes.apple.com/us/... god I hate this 14 year old
It really isnt that hard to code guys. al it is is creating something giving it actions and reactions and defining what it can and cant do.
Saw this on the news the other day... pretty... wow.
You can make mobile apps with Lua now? Dammit, why wasn't this kind of stuff around when I was 14...
his mom is hot
That picture looks like it's from the 80's.
Lol good one. Well he's probably going to charge for his next game.
Future employed nerd..
lol.. you're future boss!
Your future boss You're = you are ;)
Since when is being a nerd a bad thing?
I just recently went to my 10 year high school reunion. I had two bullies walk upto me and apologize to me for being a jerk.. The way they said it? 'We're sorry we called you a geek/nerd in high school..' I kind of gave them the o.O face and then said 'What makes you say that?'... apparently they're working for a guy who makes a TON of money a year now and he's a first class geek/nerd... and he bosses them around so they know how it feels. Moral? It's damn good to be the geek/nerd in school.
oh sweet sweet irony :)
You know what's even better? Being smart without being socially challenged.
you know what sucks? Being stupid and socially challenged... not that I would know.. <_< >_>
Bummer this kid made his game free. Even at 99 cents this kid could of made a nice chunk of change off this game in downloads.
In game ads. Angry birds is free on my android and it makes millions of dollars
Angry birds makes most its money from iOS.
he should be hanging out outside with friends..poor guy
now he can hang out with his friends in the new mansion he can buy.
Lol I bet after he found out how many people downloaded it he got pissed he didnt make it a dollar. But then again the most likely reason so many people downloaded it was because it was free.
I'm 24 and when I tried to do something remotely related to coding, Java or Html. Ignorance just obstruct my brain and makes me feel...inferior to life. Now seeing a 14 year old knows how to do that crap plus make games. It's like getting a kick to the balls and then being called a failure to life. :( I'm A Peacock, You Gotta Let Me FLY!!!!!
