Thanks to Corona’s simplicity and ease of use, we were able to bridge the gap between a physical board game and the digital world, allowing more people to enjoy Word Winder in the mobile space.
Palo Alto, CA (PRWEB) May 23, 2012
Ansca Mobile, creator of the cross-platform Corona SDK, is proud to announce the success of Word Winder, the #1 Board Game on NOOK Apps. The highly anticipated app was released in conjunction with a physical Word Winder board game, sold at Barnes & Noble locations nationwide. Within only two weeks of launch, Word Winder climbed the charts to #2 in the Word Game category for NOOK devices.
Word Winder is the brainchild of David L. Hoyt, America’s premiere puzzle maker and creator of the nationally syndicated Jumble™ and Word Roundup™ games. Perfect for any word game aficionado, the app features 50 unique puzzles for each of the four single-player games and unlimited pass-and-play challenges for friendly competition with friends and family.
“We couldn’t be prouder of the wonderful reception and success of the Word Winder app,” said David L. Hoyt, co-creator of Word Winder. “Thanks to Corona’s simplicity and ease of use, we were able to bridge the gap between a physical board game and the digital world, allowing more people to enjoy Word Winder in the mobile space.”
"We’re constantly impressed with the high caliber of apps developed by our community and Word Winder’s accomplishment is no exception,” said Walter Luh, CEO of Ansca Mobile. "The game’s success speaks to the creativity of our community and the power of the Corona platform.”
Corona’s award-winning platform is democratizing app creation by empowering developers, from independents to large game studios, to build high quality, cross-platform apps from a single code base. With a rapidly growing global community of over 115,000 developers enjoying over 50 million downloads within the last year alone, blockbuster titles developed with Corona include Blast Monkeys, Cannon Cat, Dabble and The Lost City.
Word Winder is available exclusively for NOOK devices for $1.99, with plans to roll out to iOS and other popular platforms this summer.
