[prMac.com] London, United Kingdom - Acespire Ltd today is thrilled to announce the release and immediate availability of RogueTrader 1.5, a massive update to their popular game title for iPhone and iPod touch. RogueTrader is the first and only arcade trading game in the AppStore. You embody a young ambitious trader willing to make millions trading stocks. Buy low, sell high; make huge profits and climb your way up to Wall Street.
RogueTrader now features power up cards that you either collect or redeem to help you trade more efficiently. Make sure you don't loose too many trades otherwise your stamina will go down pretty quickly! If you think you can make more cash than your friends, jump on Game Center, which is now supported. RogueTrader also integrates with the reward platform Kiip. When making successful trades or achieving important milestones you will receive a Kiip reward - which is a real voucher, or discount from one of their many partners. The rewards fit nicely in the story, being displayed as a "golden parachute" for super successful traders. RogueTrader now opens to 5 levels with 15 more in the pipeline, Acespire says.
Acespire released the first version of RogueTrader in the AppStore by mid September 2013 as a proof of concept and they accumulated over 5,000 players with no marketing. "We released a simple version to see if there was an audience for this game as we've had hoped" Samuel Huber, Acespire's CEO says. "And we weren't disappointed at all. We've also been featured in the AppStore and several publications which was a great achievement."
The team has a dedicated member for user acquisition, appointed in January, bringing the headcount to 4. "We want to keep it as lean as possible" Samuel says. Acespire is now looking for investment to develop and market the next version of the app, including an Android version.
