Ski Champion Hits 100,000 downloads In Opening Week

Paris, April 2, 2012 – Majaka announced today that the new studio's first title, Ski Champion, has now been downloaded over 100,000 times since it was released on March 24. The addictive gameplay seems to have struck a chord with the European audience as the game ranked top 10 free racing and sport game in 16 countries, entering the coveted Top 25 App charts in France, Italy and Slovakia.

" Our key objective with Ski Champion was to test how many downloads a free iOS game could generate without any form of paid promotion, Apple feature or App Store charts manipulation", said Nicolas Godement-Berline, President and co-founder of Majaka. " As Majaka's first title, the game has already performed way above expectations"

Majaka also announced that an iPad version of Ski Champion is currently under review at Apple, in the form of an app update also bringing a number of improvements.
