GRABATRON Devours the Competition in the Android Charts

6 th February 2012 – London, UK. Future Games of London (FGOL)'s  much anticipated follow up to the Hungry Shark series, ‘ GRABATRON’ reached 6 th place in the worldwide Android Top Paid Games chart.

Available simultaneously for iPhone, iPad and Android on 8 th December 2011, the title has received support and promotion by both Apple and Google. Grabatron hit the global Top 10 on Android in early January and from there continued to rise, supported by strong consumer demand.

Following the runaway success of Hungry Shark throughout 2010 and 2011 (29M installs to date), Grabatron is FGOL's second new IP chart topper, cementing their position as a leading creator of new IP in the mobile games space.

Ian Harper, Managing Director commented: “We’re thrilled to be in such rarefied company as the likes of Doodle Jump, GTA3, Worms and Fruit Ninja currently in the Android Top 10. And we've sold over 30,000 units of the game on Android Marketplace in the last two weeks of January, a level we've not seen before on this platform. With an amazing 5.9 million Android devices activated every week, we're incredibly happy to have such a breakthrough title so early in the year.”

Chris Dawson, Creative Director added: “We’re already hard at work on further enhancements and updates to Grabatron. Expect to see some new spacecraft as in-app purchases and a host of new levels, unlocks and special features. Having both Hungry Shark and Grabatron in our portfolio is certainly setting us up for an exciting 2012.”
