SliceIT! is just one of those games that you might not think about getting, but it’s a fun game. I have it on Android and every once in a while I load it up to play, it’s a great little game.
-Com2uS is excited and proud to announce Slice It! has hit over 10 million downloads! The wildly popular slicing-action puzzle game has been a success for Com2uS since its release 6 months ago.
“is that Android users are now starting to demand similar content as seen on the App Store, but given the timing of the two markets’ rises, they are already acclimated to free games.”
The premise of the game is simple: slice the shape on-screen with the correct number of lines and advance to the next puzzle. As the game progresses, the shapes become harder to dissect into equal pieces. With candy-colored graphics, a casual, notebook-style art style, and tons of levels, Com2uS was sure they had a casual game that would appeal to the pick up and play gamers of the iOS world.
What was surprising was how well the game translated to the Android market as well. Of those 10 million downloads, 5.5 million are free Android versions of Slice It!. "What this says to us," says Don Lim, General Manager of Com2uS stateside, "is that Android users are now starting to demand similar content as seen on the App Store, but given the timing of the two markets’ rises, they are already acclimated to free games."
There’s no doubt that with the rise of smartphones of all types, more and more consumers are downloading games, with an overwhelming majority opting for free with ads over paid. 1.2 million of the 10 million Slice It! iOS users bought the paid version, and 3.3 million went with the free version. Com2uS is, nevertheless, excited by the numbers brought in last week.
"We’ve been in the mobile space for awhile now, but these download results are quite remarkable. Free or paid, Android and iOS, we’re excited to get our games to as many people as possible. We’re a company with a history of strong mobile games, and our goal is really to make great casual content available to all," Mr. Lim explains. With numbers like that, the trend of free games seems poised to continue, with Android users eager to get the same games made popular on the iOS.
