    What's up Blackhatters.

    I got quite interested in app reskinning when I stumbled upon a few threads about it here on BHW a few weeks ago, I read more and more and got really interested in giving it a shot. Healzers reverse-engineering on apps was the first thread I read if I remember correctly.

    I don't have any coding skills, but I do have graphic design skills. I checked Google Play Store what's out there, and a lot of games in a niche I found has terrible app logos and in-game graphics, but a lot of downloads/installs. There might be some money there, but I don't know. If the method suck ass and I don't make any $, I will put this to the grave.
    But I wanted to try it, so..

    I bought a clicker game template for Unity3D a week ago and made my first game the same day, it was fun. However the Unity3D templates had too much hassle to make them run smoothly on Android, so I bought an Android Studio project instead and watched/read several guides about Android Studio.

    Yesterday I uploaded my 4 first games in Google Play Store. I have two niches in mind so far that could get some downloads organically in Google Play Store + could get some nice traffic via social media and so on with my niches. I have never had anything to do with apps, games or Google Play Store before, so I have no idea what to expect.

    I'm monetizing with ads, so all my games are free. I have banner ads that are showing constantly while in game + Interstitial ads every time you die.

    My plan:
    • "Create" & upload 5 games/week.
    • Create a YouTube video for the game & rank if needed. (I had some success with "YT+CPA method" so I figured I might be able to run some traffic this way)
    • Run Instagram bot for the games/niches to promote/get downloads.
    I want to get organic downloads via Google Play Store or else this will get really hard. Hopefully my niches will help with that.

    So far I have:
    • 4 Games published
    • Instagram bot running for one account to "promote" the apps
    • Written ASO description template for quicker uploads
    • Created Photoshop templates for all graphics for faster reskinning
    • 3 YouTube Videos uploaded & ranked for 3 of the games
    Tools/Programs:
    • Photoshop
    • Illustrator
    • Android Studio
    • Notepad++
    • Resizer
    • Sony Vegas Pro 12
    • SMM Panel
    • Instagram Bot

    Let's see what happens!

    Game #5 DONE

    Just uploaded game #5, it's pending at the moment. Will start on graphics for the next one since it's still early in the day and I finished the game already.

    Any good tips on ASO? I think that's the key to reskinning IMO

    No idea to be honest, I've never done this before. Just keyword research, I found niches which have searches but no apps/games for it.

    I literally started yesterday (I uploaded 4 yesterday and 1 today), so I would guess 0. However admob says I've earned 50c today somehow.

    Don't you think that Reskinning is Over saturated ? Good luck.

    Good luck! Would you consider reskinning for IOS? If I remember correct, the process is harder for IOS? Might be more money in it though?

    Hopefully success, haha.

    Thanks.

    Thanks! Maybe in the future, we'll see how it goes. It is probably harder, everything with Apple/iOS is annoying haha.

    I use both sometimes, but I use suggestions in the search bar on Google Play Store mostly. And I know people are searching for games in my niche, however not sure exactly how many. I'm just testing to see what happens, that's the best way of knowing.

    Thanks!

    The reskinning takes about 2 hours I'd say.

    Thank you!

    Game #6 DONE

    2 games today. Now I am gonna look into getting some downloads from other ways then just the search in Google Play Store.
