SAN MATEO, Calif. and LONDON -- HandyGames, the leading German publisher of mobile games, debuts its award-winning Townsmen 6 for Android on GetJar, the world's largest open app store. On March 2010, the sixth title in the popular Townsmen series was awarded the "Best Strategy/Simulation Game of the Year" award by Pocketgamer magazine at GDC. This blockbuster game is available for the first time on the Android platform exclusively on GetJar. HandyGames joins other top publishers and brands such as Digital Chocolate, Zynga, Angry Birds publisher Rovio, Com2us, and The Salvation Army among others, to leverage GetJar's proven distribution power for Android apps and games.
"Townsmen 6 is the highest quality for an international audience and offers unlimited entertainment for all fans so it made perfect sense to bring our game to Android as consumers take to the Android platform in droves," comments Markus Kassulke, CEO of HandyGames(tm). "We decided to launch our games on GetJar because of their proven ability to market apps and games to consumers around the world and their willingness to work closely with us to build awareness of our app."
"Despite Android's monumental growth, the discovery of Android games has never been more challenging," said Patrick Mork, CMO of GetJar. "GetJar's focus and expertise in marketing games using PR, our partner channels such as Sprint, AT&T and Yahoo! Mobile and other above the line marketing campaigns, ensures that the few publishers we partner with really get significant exposure for their content. HandyGames is a veteran of the games space with a reputation for high quality games. We're delighted that they would choose GetJar to launch the crown jewel of their games portfolio on the Android platform."
