Beautifully little game, massive congrats on the feature! Did you have a contact at apple to help with this, or was it totally out of the blue?
Thanks, means a lot!
Apple scans sites like TouchArcade regularly and my earlier games have been covered there. Both of those games were also featured worldwide at launch and I develop exclusively for iOS atm. These are the kind of things that I _think_ help. Apple is a super large company and quite secretive, so your guess is as good as mine.
That said, I had not heard _anything_ from Apple beforehand and just noticed this when I woke up. I think this time it's a combination of luck and earlier featuring!

The other thing is that paid games like Mazeing are a rarity these days and it really seems Apple likes to push us little basement developers to the spotlight every once in a while. Can't complain!
The features change tonight and only then we'll see is this really happening.
