Artificial Life Inc., a leading provider of mobile gaming applications, today revealed its current iPhone sales numbers and key ranking statistics. The company announced that as of October 31, 2009, it has produced and released 21 games for the iPhone and iPod during the prior 12 months.
Despite the large number of games available on the Apple App Store, 20 (or 95%) of the company’s games were ranked among the top 100 most downloaded games. Of Artificial Life’s games, 17 games have been ranked in the top 50, 15 in the top 10 downloads, and 11 games have achieved top 5 or higher. So far, the best selling game for the company was downloaded close to 1.8 million times and the second best game was downloaded over 1.4 million times.
The number of iPhone game downloads is approximately equivalent to 37.8% of the overall number of games sold by Artificial Life so far in 2009, which points to the company’s great success in developing popular games for the iPhone. With the development time for the company to develop a high quality iPhone game averaging only 3-4 months, Artificial Life also reported that they will publish in the near future a schedule of upcoming new iPhone game releases.
The CEO of Artificial Life, Eberhard Schoneberg, was pleased with the latest figures. He said, “The iPhone/iPod touch market is very competitive with thousands of games offered to download. However, our numbers and especially our ranking statistics clearly show that Artificial Life has proven its success as one of the world’s leading iPhone content developers and publishers. Encouraged by the performance of our games, we will continue to develop and launch more exciting games for our fans and customers in the coming weeks and months.”
