I tried my best and I still have a less than 50 downloads. My game is called Trump's Great Wall and it's like a tetris version of him building the wall. I thought it could get popular quick. I've tried everything from using nouncy, thunderclap, all social media channels, language translation, etc. I thought my strategy was good but I guess maybe it's because of the timing?
1) Fix the name and screenshots:
The game dynamics are geared towards people that dislike Trump, or at least his wall idea, and yet
A) Your game title is "Trump's Great Wall"
B) The icon is a picture of Trump's face
C) The first two screenshots show Trump happily building his wall.
Nobody that dislikes Trump is going to click on your game to see more details, and if they do, the first two screenshots they see would make them leave anyway. Change the name to something along the lines of, "Break Trump's Wall", and move your 3rd screenshot to be the first screenshot (i.e. the one showing a pissed off Trump). I would also add a screenshot of the rocket being used (especially if there's an explosion) to make it more clear.
2) Once you've fixed the points above, post about the game in places that have a strong dislike for Trump. There are many online communities and forums that would probably love the idea of game and would spread the link to friends.
If you'd like more specific advice on relevant places to post your game, and additional advice on how to market it, let me know,
Agree with Lee von Kraus that you need better screenshots and logo to make the game attractive.
I would also use Reddit as a marketing channel. Post your game under a few different subreddits - ones that favor Trump vs the ones that do not favor Trump.
Finally, it is a long shot, but you might consider emailing a bunch of journalists to see if they would cover it. News folks like to cover anything Trump.
Start from big news outlets and work your way down to small ones. It is time-consuming but free.
You need exposure. Think of creative ways to get free exposure.
Hope this helps.
