KARLSRUHE – March 5, 2012 –
flaregames GmbH, a leading
developer and publisher of mobile games, today released a free
update for the Android version of its hit game,
Royal Revolt!. With this update, flaregames is
celebrating the birthday of Google Play, the marketplace for
Android apps and games.
"Google's Android operating system has evolved a lot over the
last year and Google Play has emerged as a solid marketplace for
games," commented Klaas Kersting, CEO of flaregames, on the
relationship with Google. "In just the past year since the release
of our first Android game, Google has given us access to millions
of players. It‘s a great success story for which we are
grateful to Google."
The colorful and humorous
Royal Revolt! is about a young prince, who after
the death of the king, has his kingdom stolen by nasty relatives.
With simple and intuitive touch controls, the player directs the
Prince through the lovingly designed missions and helps him to
regain the strongholds of the land. The update adds four new levels
in which the prince commands no other troops except for friendly
green "android" characters - designed around the logo of the
Android operating system. The spells have been replaced with a
powerful shower of confetti and the fantasy realm gives way to a
table with a birthday cake and gifts.
"We see the update as a thank you to Google, and also to our
millions of loyal players on Android. We hope they enjoy the update
and have a lot of fun with the confetti spell," said Pete Walentin,
Managing Director of Keen Flare.
