Integrating Google analytics to cocos2d-x game

Since releasing my first game as an indie developer, I have been struggling to find out what people are thinking about the game. A few questions hits my mind:

  • What is their behavior in each and every stage.
  • Are they finding it hard or difficult to play.
  • Any specific stage they are stuck at and not able to finish (annoyed).
  • How many times they are losing or wining in a stage
  • Are they even able to finish the complete game.
  • Are they visiting your store and do they know that there is an in app purchase available

To me these data are valuable and they give me an opportunity to improve the game and have a better chance at selling it. Without these information it is like flying a plane in the blind and depending on your luck. We are not big companies, we are either sole developers or team of few enthusiastic entrepreneurs who want to create some awesome games :). We all know how hard this is. Even if we end up creating a reasonable game, competition against big companies are unsustainable. BUT, we can try, lets try.

 

There may be few frameworks to achieve this, I have decided to go with Google analytics. Lets get started.
