Digital Chocolate racks up 80 million downloads

Cross-platform games taking off

One of the most prolific publishers on the App Store, Digital Chocolate is responsible for the highly Qi rated Pizza Shop Mania, California Gold Rush, Tornado Mania!, and Spelltris.

In his assessment of California Gold Rush, IGN’s Levi Buchanan complimented the puzzler’s learning curve: “I also appreciate how the game smartly rolls out new challenges so you are never overwhelmed, but never bored of playing the same kinds of stages over and over again.”

Established in 2003 by the founder of Electronic Arts (whose own Qi success story Need for Speed Hot Pursuit accelerated onto iPhone recently) Trip Hawkins, Digital Chocolate has recorded over 80 million downloads of its games on iPhone and Android.

Two of Digital Chocolate’s latest releases on iOS MMA Pro Fighter and Millionaire City demonstrate the studio’s fresh and innovative approach to social gaming.

By linking this pair of titles directly into their Facebook counterparts, Digital Chocolate is paving the way for profitable cross-platform gaming, with MMA Pro Fighter already enjoying strong demand from the iPhone and social networking crowds.

"Our growth across the world's most exciting platforms separates us from the crowd," says Digital Chocolate president Marc Metis.

"We are unique in combining social gaming expertise, leadership on both Facebook and mobile, a global approach, technology leverage, and scale."
