Gunman Clive 3DS Sales Outclass Android, iOS on Nintendo gaming news, videos and discussion

Indie developer Bertil Horberg has confirmed exceptional sales for the fan-favourite side scroller Gunman Clive on 3DS.

The download title, which is also available on iOS, Amazon, PC/Mac and Android, initially had a high sales spike on Android devices but since then has dominated the sales scene with the Nintendo 3DS eShop eclipsing both mobile and computer releases. With all platforms combined, the game has been downloaded over 250,000 times since release.

Horberg confirmed the news on Twitter, and also posted a nifty pie-chart on NeoGAF to highlight just how strong the Nintendo 3DS sales have been - equating to more than 75% of the overall figure.

It was well and truly worth the couple of bucks I spent on it! Good news for the 3ds for sure!!

When in doubt....Whip it out!

When you price things appropriately, I've no doubts that the eShop can compete with the big boys on smartphones. Given the choice, who wouldn't prefer button controls?

Many games are vastly overpriced compared to their smartphone versions though, with no extra content to justify it. Hopefully this will show other publishers (or Nintendo; I forget who exactly is responsible for setting the price) that if there isn't a massive gap between the smartphone price and the eShop price, people will choose the eShop!

 Given the rampant piracy on smartphones I'm not surprised sales fell flat compared to a platform where everyone must actually buy the game.
