NEW YORK, July 9, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Tapinator, Inc. (OTC: TAPM) (OTC Pink: TAPM) is pleased to announce that its newly launched, pixel-style game, “Balance of the Shaolin” has been featured as a “Best New Game” on Apple’s iOS platform. The game has reached the top 50 overall charts and is now the #45 top application on iPad. Within the top 50, “Balance of the Shaolin” joins numerous category leaders, including King’s puzzle games “Candy Crush Saga” and “Bubble Witch 2 Saga,” Supercell’s simulation games “Clash of Clans” and “Hay Day,” Glu’s role playing game “Kim Kardashian: Hollywood,” and Wargaming’s action game “World of Tanks Blitz.”
With the success of “Flappy Bird,” Tapinator believes that a new gaming category is emerging: Rapid, Simple Games (RSG). This new category is characterized by simple, easy to learn, yet hard to master gameplay, that can be played in very quick segments of under 30 seconds. The Company believes that it is well positioned to become a market leader for RSG games.
“Balance of the Shaolin” is Tapinator’s first title within this quickly evolving category. Tapinator CEO, Ilya Nikolayev, stated, “It is very exciting to see that our first initiative and launch into this new category has resulted in ‘Balance of the Shaolin’ being selected as a Best New Game by Apple. We see substantial opportunity to build the Shaolin into a valuable brand name.”
Balance of the Shaolin is an epic adventure about our hero balancing his/her way to glory, aiming to become the next shaolin master. With awesome 2D pixel environments, the player balances our hero in the world’s harshest places including on top of buildings, mountains, volcanoes, and moving trains. Simple to learn, yet hard to master, players train their balancing skills in 30 second segments and can then progress to our endless Remix mode. Balance of the Shaolin is currently available on Apple’s iOS platform (http://balanceoftheshaolin.com) and is coming soon to Google Play and the Amazon App Store.
