I'm planning on displaying a dialog requesting users review my Android game, but I'm wondering at what point I should display the dialog. I wont show the dialog until the user has completed several levels, but I can't decide where in the game flow to place it.
I have several options.
- On game launch - my concern with this is that they're looking to play a game at this moment in time, not review the game.
- On game exit - this seems a fairly classic time to do it, but many users wont quit by pressing back, often they'll just use the home button, or just turn the phone off. Also, if a user is stopping playing then they'll often be doing so because they've got something else to do.
- On level completion - I will only request the review on successful level completion as I assume a player will be feeling good about the game at that point in time. My concern with this is that it interrupts game flow.
I'd be interested in hearing the thoughts of others on this.
