Question From $800 per month to $60!

I run a 3d action/strategy game called wulfram (http://www.wulfram.com). Most of the money I collect is from supporters that voluntarily donate to the game, but recently I've been toying with the idea of using ad generating revenue (for the ones that do not donate).

In this regard, my "content" isn't so much the website itself (though it is becoming a more significant part of the game), but rather it's the game (which is a real windows app). I'm wondering if ad agencies understand that -- seems like they don't spend more than 20 seconds considering my application.

Most of my hits come from the entry / return point to/from the game:

Google/adsense was great for the first month. I made a little over $800, and I was so happy. My clicks where getting close to 50 cents a click!

Next thing I know I'm getting pennies per click, and I'm looking for other advertising options. Now my volume isn't very big: a little over 350,000 hits per month, and I'm getting turned down quite a bit from the "prime networks", which typically say that this market segment isn't performing well, and maybe try back some other time (and I don't know if they are just being 'nice').

I'm looking for hints about what I should consider.

Networks I've applied for so far:
casalemedia (denied)
burstmedia (denied)
fastclick (denied)
budsinc (I think their mail box got full, and my application bounced)
triabalfusion (denied)

I did get into some of the following:
paypopup (tried them -- worse performance than adsense!)
popuptraffic (did not try them yet)

Maybe I should just move on, and keep adsense (and forget about it), but I just had to ask here... any ideas?
