HandyGames™ plans over 100 million installed games in 2011

Particularly in emerging markets, these so-called feature phones will be responsible for an immense growth in the number of downloads of the more than 40 top titles the company is planning to release for free for the JavaME platform in 2011.

"Even though Mission FREE is still in the starting phase, the success is already measurable and very impressive - but that's just the tip of the iceberg.", comments HandyGames™ CEO Christopher Kassulke on the company's FREE strategy. "Free mobile games have triggered a boom in our partners' download portals and in the long term, we are confident that we can convince all mobile handset manufacturers and network operators of the benefits of FREE."

Besides free games for feature phones, HandyGames™ is also offering free games for smartphones. FREE titles from HandyGames™ are currently available in the Nokia OVI Store, in the Sony Ericsson Play Now Arena, in the Google Android Market and the Apple App Store, and elsewhere.
