Miniclip Surpasses 100 Million Mobile Game Download Mark
Here’s some industry news before we call it a night, Swiss-based online and mobile games company, Miniclip, has announced today that it has surpassed the 100-milion downloads mark (insert the obligatory “if I had a dollar for every download line here”) across the board for the company’s mobile titles. Considering that this highly successful company has been around since 2001, it was a long time coming.
With its new cross-platform initiative, Miniclip has become the first company to have simultaneously launched new games across online, iPhone and Android. Popular games in its expansive library include Extreme Skater, Hambo and Monster Island. Miniclip’s recently re-launched website now allows users to instantly play mobile games online, share it with their friends and download it to their iPhone, Android or Windows Phone. For those players that enjoy competing with big groups, Miniclip is implementing its new multiplayer server technology to run game tournaments in real time online and on mobile.
“This milestone clearly demonstrates that Miniclip’s online players want to extend their gaming experience to their mobile devices,” said Sergio Varanda, Director of Mobile for Miniclip. “By utilizing our proprietary X-Port Genie technology we’ve been able to substantially grow our mobile library by simultaneously launching new games across multiple mobile and online platforms allowing Miniclip players to play any time, anywhere.”
