[prMac.com] Los Gatos, California - 8cell, Inc. today is thrilled to announce that the iOS app, Color Switch, just reached the #1 position in the US App Store. Color Switch overtook the top position in the United States iPhone App Store last night. The hit action arcade game was created by David Reichelt and built solely using the new codeless development software called Buildbox. The game has amassed over 8,000,000 downloads, and is currently ranked number one in 34 different countries including United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, and Sweden.
Color Switch was created by California resident, David Reichelt, in a single week using Drag & Drop game building software called Buildbox. Buildbox is the first game development tool without any option for programming or scripting and is widely becoming known as a rapid development tool. Creators use the software by dragging images into a level editor and changing their physics and control properties to create unique games. David created the basic idea for Color Switch in only 30 minutes, and then finished the complete game in one week.
Color Switch was featured by Apple in major markets upon release and promoted heavily by the social media star, Fortafy, who published the game. This was the 31st Buildbox game to break the Top 100 iPhone Games chart in the last year and the 28th Buildbox game to be featured by Apple. Buildbox has had more Apple features and Top 100 games built with it's software than all other game building software platforms combined.
Buildbox is the world's first software that truly allows anyone to create amazing games regardless of technical skill. Due to its unique user interface, making games becomes a fluid process that doesn't require any scripting, programming or software design experience. Buildbox has been publicly available for 15 months and the company has recently announced the version 2.0 of its software.
8cell, Inc. was founded by Trey Smith in La Jolla, CA in 2007 with the goal of empowering everyday users to create amazing products through user friendly software. After many years of custom building game creation software, they debuted Buildbox in 2014. With thousands of users and many top ranked games, Buildbox has become the core product for the company. Recently, the company moved to Silicon Valley to expand their creation software lineup. All Material and Software (C) Copyright 2016 8cell, Inc. All Rights Reserved.
