I only hear crickets after releasing my first game to android play store

I just released beta version of my app to the android play store and I received literally no download. Would anyone mind checking out the page at one glance and suggest me on how to improve the listing.

That's why you first do a marketing and advertisement for your game!

Mobile market is overloaded, try things like steam, itch.io, gamejolt, playstation or switch.

Don't ask other developers to try your game, ask the players.
If u think that there is money in the thing u should consider spending money on advertistment

hi Ferdowsur Asif  I haven't tried your game but these break the brick games are "ten a penny" in an already saturated market. I do like how you have enemies to make it more challenging ( from watching the promo video).... so heres my 2 cents

- could you have a sound effect when the bricks break?

Anyway, good luck with your game and your next project.

Pretty good game, you should watch some of Tim's Marketing videos https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL34tw91iHmmrMXTYWH1meZ63_r83fA23F

I'll keep trying your game when I have more time. I managed to get a ball stuck in the wall, it wasn't a big deal because i had about 6 balls at the time however if you only had one it would be game breaking. I think you should open up reviews, no one is gonna care that you have 5 stars when you are the only on to rate it.

Thank you all for your feedback.

@Kanugane yea, my bad. I didn't actually expect to make any money at all or have any success. This was more of a learning experience. But that low amount of downloads is a bit sad. I guess my low expectation wasn't low enough. As the meme say "I expected nothing yet I am disappointed."

@IndieOmega I think I am not gonna spend any more time on a failed project trying to port it to different stores and just gonna give up, move on to the next project. I never liked mobile gaming anyway.

@ruby55 I dont really have a clue where I would get them. I searched a while on facebook and reddit for relevant groups/pages but most of them were filled with very professional looking games that were not getting any attention , I just didn't have the courage to post on any of them.

@Steve Cameron, I agree. I actually have shamefully long list of incomplete projects ( some of them: https://youtu.be/Vzln6IXJ9jE ). So I decided to actually finish something instead of always failing trying to complete too big projects. This brick breaker genre seemed like the fastest one I could get a somewhat complete project out of. Yea, I totally forgot about the brick destroy sounds, I turned them off to test sounds from the ball and never really turned them back on again.

@STORMFATH3R, thank you. I actually watched almost every one of Tim's videos. I will rewatch that playlist again. I actually fixed the ball getting stuck bug but haven;t pushed it to live yet. I didn't really know the review was closed. I thought open beta meant review was open too. I guess that's why the two other review I got according to the dev console wasn't showing up. I will check some stuff and push it to live sometime today.

I had to take a family member to hospital recently, not a big problem but still didn't have time to check anything.  Sorry for the late replies and thanks again for the feedbacks.
