Top ten in over 35 countries for ‘MAYDAY! Emergency Landing’

Verona, Italy, 18th March 2013 It’s been the greatest launch week-end that could possibly be expected for ‘MAYDAY! Emergency Landing’. The app developer by Reludo has seen over 500,000 downloads in the last four days, ranking #1 in the US for both simulation and action categories, with raving customers reviews and a constant growth in conversion sales.

The app where players have to face the most dangerous weather conditions and aircraft failures and drive passengers safely home was released on Thursday last week and immediately climbed the charts, overtaking in number of downloads big ongoing successes like Ruzzle and Angry Birds.

“We are delighted of these initial results”, said Antonio Farina, CEO of Reludo. “We were really counting on the fact we had an innovative game and we always bet on good ideas and quality. This is why it’s great to see that our efforts have been rewarded and we really look forward to the next few weeks to improve the game with more content to engage with all the people who have bought the full version of the app. There is a great message here to all small developers out there and we are proud to fly the flag of independent game development up there in app store”

The game is all about landing all sorts of aircraft in increasingly difficult conditions. From the windy shores of the Maldives, to the rainy and foggy airports of northern Europe, the game takes the players in the last bits of an engaging and entertaining journey. Will they make it safely to the ground?
