Teija Laine | 24 Feb 2014 | apps, events
When the year’s biggest event for the mobile industry kicks off in Barcelona on 24 February, AppCampus will be there to present its latest app releases. Now in its second year of operation, the program continues to attract thousands of aspiring developers worldwide.
We’re proud to once again roll our great new games for Windows Phone! Four AppCampus teams will launch new apps at the GSMA Mobile World Congress. The new apps now are available for download at the Windows phone store, so go ahead and test them out. Don’t forget to check out our previous AppCampus alumni apps on our website.
“I’m really excited that AppCampus teams are continuously producing high quality apps and becoming successful worldwide. Congratulations to the teams launching their apps today. We wish them all the success possible in the future,” says Head of AppCampus Mika Okkola.
Atar Games, a UK based company, formed in 2013 and specializing in the creation of mind games for mobile phones and other platforms is one of the teams to present their app at the event. “The thing that is so special and unique about our game is that there is something in it for everyone. The levels vary, starting from very easy and ending in very complicated. It is for this reason that the game really turns into a family game,” says Ophir Atar, founder and head of development at Atar Games.
Daniil Maskileison, Director of Funzai! The Russian developers of Muzies, the world’s first gamified music player, credits AppCampus for offering support for indie developers. “AppCampus’ support has played a major role in bringing the idea to life. Another factor that attracted us to the Windows Phone platform was that it’s still possible to get into the tops of Windows Phone Store without huge marketing budgets – something highly unlikely on other mobile platforms,” Maskileison says.
Alain-Daniel Bourdages from Canadian developers GreenCod Apps feels that it was a great experience to create a new unique version of their game Bad Traffic for Windows Phone with the help of the AppCampus team. “Windows Phone has become a relevant platform for developers and we wanted to be sure to have a presence on their store. Other developers have had quite a bit of success with their own games, so we were keen to put our foot in the door as well. The platform is still relatively young and offers tons of opportunities to build a brand with a different concept,” Bourdages says.
Kinos Game Studio, located in Oulu, Finland, a northern city with a buzzing game scene, sees the Windows Phone platform as an efficient way for budding developers to get in to the industry. “We were interested in the new platform and its possibilities in the game industry. We believe that the Windows Phone ecosystem is getting stronger and we want to be professional game developers in all major platforms. Also, we are a Finnish team and Nokia is doing strong in Finland, so there might also be an element of some national influence involved”, says Jyri Autio from Kinos Game Studios.
The apps launched at Mobile World Congress 2014
Israeli developer Atar Games will present IQ Safe, a logic puzzle game. It combines thinking and an element of luck, which makes it a fun and challenging experience for those who enjoy an intelligent gaming experience. IQ Safe is now available for download at the Windows phone store.
