[prMac.com] Cirencester, United Kingdom - UK app developer Neon Play (www.neonplay.com) has achieved over thirty million downloads since its launch in June 2010. The multiple award-winning games studio is producing some of the most popular games on the App Store, with eleven of their titles exceeding one million downloads each.
"It was almost a year ago that we hit our four millionth download, to have now reached 30 million is staggering," said Neon Play CEO Oli Christie. "For us, this year is about spreading the good word (and games) of Neon Play to even more people. We're excited about embracing different gaming platforms and territories, as well as Facebook, to ensure we find as many fans as possible."
Neon Play hit global headlines last year when it was announced that Paper Glider - a huge global iOS hit - was the 10 billionth app to be downloaded from the Apple App Store.
Flicking through Neon Play's games catalogue, it's easy to see how Neon Play has been propelled to such a figure. Games such as Flick Football, Paper Glider, Traffic Panic 3D, Paper Glider Crazy Copter and Golf Putt Pro are some of their titles to have hit the big time in the Apple App Store charts.
"2011 was a brilliant year," added Christie. "And 2012 will be about delving deeper. Now we know that people love our games, it's a great incentive for us to become even more creative in the studio, to make our games more social and viral and to monetise even better. We have some cracking new games in the pipeline and we're hugely excited about 2012."
Neon Play was crowned by Pocket Gamer as the #36 best mobile games studio in the world last year, ranking them as the #1 indie mobile games studio in the UK. Since this great accolade they have won 10 business awards including the UK's Best Start Up and the UK's Entrepreneur of the Year. They have also started releasing their games onto the Android platform via the Google Marketplace.
