Funzio's Social Military iOS Game Modern War Secures a Whopping 1.5 Million Installs in a WeekNew Title Lands on Apple's Top 10 Grossing Apps Chart for Both iPhone and iPad (December 08, 2011)
SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 12/08/11 -- Funzio, the leading developer of advanced social games for mobile, Facebook and Google+, today announced that its second game, Modern War, was downloaded more than 1.5 million times in the week following its launch on Apple's iOS platform (http://www.marketwire.com/press-release/funzio-answers-call-battle-with-modern-war-first-realistic-military-social-action-game-1593633.htm). A worldwide universal title for the iPhone and iPad, the game also hit the Top 10 Grossing Apps Charts for both devices.
Modern War is the first realistic military social action game. Like Funzio's hit first game Crime City, Modern War features a layered game design, balancing campaign, cooperative and battle multiplayer modes, that helped give Crime City its edge. The 1.5 million installs translate into 13 million battles and invasions, 30 times more spy drone purchases than the US Military and 70 years of total play time.

"It really validates our vision to see the iOS market respond so strongly to Modern War," said Ken Chiu, CEO of Funzio. "We have now proven twice that a universal design building on people's natural team-building and competitive impulses can deliver the fun that broad audiences are looking for."
Funzio's earlier game Crime City reached #1 on Apple's Free Apps Chart within days of launching on iOS (http://www.marketwire.com/press-release/funzios-crime-city-tops-apples-app-store-chart-becomes-one-top-10-grossing-apps-1549867.htm) and has consistently been in the Top 10 Grossing Apps Chart since. Crime City was also an instant hit on Facebook and Google+.
