    We've finally got our first iPhone game on the app store. We are primarily an animation company and think we've got a nice little 'pick up and play'able game that also looks and feels nice to play. We are looking to increase awareness so that more people know it's there, any ideas?

    Thank you for your time!

    My advice is give away free copies to reviewers, Tech celebrities (with high traffics blogs) and Magazines. if you get good reviews you will get a cascade effect

    Get loads of people to reviewnon YouTube? Offer $25, $15 and $10 iTunes vouchers for the best. Will cause awareness.

    buying reviews isn't the same as legitimately promoting your product.

    Offer it free with FreeAppADay. Watch it soar to the top then change the price.

    You have to give it time, like you there are thousands of app aprove everyday on the AppStore and most of them want a review/mention on those blogs.

    Alex albrecht, Raychul moore, IJustine, Chris Pirillo, Kevin rose, Felicia fey to name some.

    Congratulations!
    I'd consider trying to build-up a fanbase on Twitter. That way you can promote and alert your followers.

    Gunrazor did it better. And Buster Red. And the controls need a touch to move option and the tilt to move needs to have an option to lower sensitivity because people will get bored quick with that high sensitivity.

    Buy an ad on an app-related site. You're not going to be able to promote your app as well as you'd like without spending at least some money.
