SHENZHEN, China, Oct. 23, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- iDreamSky Technology Limited (Nasdaq:DSKY) ("iDreamSky" or the "Company"), China's largest independent mobile game publishing platform, today announced that it has launched its all new version of "Fruit Ninja for Tencent" on iOS.
In cooperation with developer Halfbrick, the game development studio based in Brisbane, Australia, iDreamSky has taken one of the most successful mobile games of all time and optimized it for iOS in China.
The iOS version follows the Company's highly successful September 2nd launch on Android, which introduced exciting characters, items, powers and social features customized for the Chinese market. Within the first two days of the Android version's launch, the game was downloaded over 170,000 times on Myapp.
"Fruit Ninja for Tencent" was iDreamSky's first collaboration with both Weixin and Tencent on the redesign of the iconic "FruitNinja" game. Weixin is the largest mobile social networking platform in China and this collaboration allows iDreamSky to access and monetize its massive user base.
The sharing and invitation functions of social networking platforms allow existing users to invite their friends and family to play iDreamSky's games, and share their high scores and achievements within their social network. This should help to further expand iDreamSky's user base and increase brand awareness.
"We are pleased to bring 'Fruit Ninja for Tencent' to the rapidly growing base of iOS users in China," commented Michael Chen, CEO and founder of iDreamSky. "In the coming weeks, we have a full slate of marketing activities planned to get people excited about this uniquely Chinese game. We look forward to launching more innovative partnerships where we collaborate with both game publishers and distribution platforms to bring the best games from around the world to China.The launch of this game on iOS is an important stepping stone as iDreamSky looks to build the largest independent mobile game publishing platform in China."
