It is a good day to be an indie game developer! This milestone comes at an exciting time for Heyalda; its latest titles such as Enduro Extreme Trials and Snow Rally 2012 have climbed up the Top Free Downloads and Top Grossing charts in the Apple App store in countries such as France, Spain, Sweden, Norway, and Korea.
Enduro Extreme Trials - Free has reached the #1 Top Free iPhone Racing app rank in France, Italy, Guatemala, and Spain. In France, it has reached the #5 most downloaded app of all free apps in the French Apple App store.
Jim Range, founder of Heyalda, a one-man game studio, stated it is nothing short of a euphoric feeling that he experiences when he sees Heyalda's games ranked in the top 200 lists of Top Grossing Games in the Apple App Store.
"Every day Heyalda has tens of thousands of game downloads and thousands of visitors to Heyalda's web site. But it is when I see Enduro Extreme Trials Free ranking in the Top 200 Top Grossing Games in countries like France, Italy, Korea and Spain... and when Enduro Extreme Trials is grossing more revenue than games such as Diner Dash, Cut The Rope: Experiments, and We Rule Deluxe in the Spanish and French markets... and when Enduro Extreme Trials is the #5 most downloaded app of all free apps in the French App store including apps such as Angry Birds Free and Facebook, that I really get motivated to do more and do better. The big companies such as EA, Gameloft, Disney, PopCap, and Zynga create great products and give Heyalda some very stiff competition. How cool is it that the Apple App Store gives indie developers like me a chance to compete against the billion-dollar companies, and sometimes win! ", Jim Range, Founder & CEO of Heyalda.
