Umbrella Games LLC, an independent video game developer and publisher, is recognized as a global leader in mobile game development. With titles available for both Android and iOS, Umbrella boasts a portfolio of 23 games to date, with many more in the production. Boom Dots and Down The Mountain, their two most popular games, have been downloaded in excess of 4 million times from both the Apple and Google Play app stores. Perhaps most impressive is their consistent mainstay on the “Features” section of the App Store - refresh it every week and you are bound to see a new Umbrella game lauded as anything from a “Staff Pick” to a “Game We Can’t Stop Playing.”

Specializing in what Umbrella refers to as “Arcade-style,” their games more often than not transcend any clear classification, making them all the more exhilarating and addicting. In addition, Umbrella games span from the simple and silly to the complex and thought-provoking. Indeed, mobile game news website, Touch Arcade writes: "When it comes to high score chasers on mobile, there's a few studios that crank out reliably good stuff. Umbrella deserves a ton of credit.”
