COMBO CREW GOES STRAIGHT TO NUMBER ONE AS SAMSUNG APP

COMBO CREW shot to the number one position in the paid Samsung App charts almost worldwide, on the day of its release.

Hitting the number 1 spot in Australia, Norway, Taiwan, Japan, Denmark, Greece, Austria, Bangladesh, Egypt and more, it also launched comfortably into the top 20 in France, Germany, Italy, Hong Kong, New Zealand, Poland, China, India, Brazil and Mexico.

The action-packed rumble game from The Game Bakers is already a big success on other platforms and the 100% Indie team has brought the game to market as part of its initiative to help indie developers get published on the Samsung Apps marketplace.

Combo Crew is the first beat-’em-up for mobile to have touch controls and asynchronous multiplayer, and its brilliant visuals and quick reactions have proved popular among gamers worldwide, providing additional appeal through translations for the regions. It went live on Samsung Apps on August 5, 2013.
