We’ve gotten a lot of great new journalist reviews lately! We would like to point out Softonic, planet Earth’s 249th biggest website, which gives us 8 of 10 and ‘very good’ on the Windows version.
‘Trolls vs. Vikings is a gorgeous gaming experience….I’ll stop banging on about similarities between T vs. V and Plants vs. Zombies, now. The truth is, Trolls vs. Vikings is a blast to play.’
Solid!! Amazon has featured us for a week now in the European Kindle markets!
We’ve thus been climbing the charts in UK, Spain, Italy, France and Germany. Top placement has been in Spain, where we reached #24 on the overall Amazon chart for all products, 15# on Games, and #4 on Strategy games. In Italy we reached #22 on games and #29 overall for all Amazon products. Not bad!
Trolls vs Vikings™ Finally Available for Windows and Surface
One of highest rated games on platform – #1 on ‘new’ charts – Microsoft featured
OSLO, NORWAY, JULY 28, 2014 – Megapop is proud to announce that Trolls vs Vikings is now globally available on the Windows Store platform! The game has been widely featured by Microsoft during the soft-launch and beyond, ensuring that Trolls vs Vikings rose to #1 on ‘New and Rising’ charts in multiple countries.
We have now soft-launched Trolls vs Vikings on Android, and the game is available in Norway and Spain for now. These are the two countries where we have offices, allowing us to efficiently track performance and any issues. Things seem solid so far, and average user ratings are close to 5 stars! Few bugs reported too. We’re likely to launch internationally within the next few days!
The Android version is done! We’re now testing our launch candidate, and will submit to Google Play as soon as that checks out. It includes all the updates, tweaks, improvements and work we have done so far, so Android users are in for a super polished treat!
We’re now approved by Amazon, and Trolls vs Vikings will now launch on Kindle Fire devices! The Amazon Fire Mobile version is also approved. We’re marching along on our third platform. This version is a greatly optimized and enhanced version compared to our original Apple release version, so the gamers are getting better and better content to have fun with. Next up is Google Play and Android!
Shiny, so much new stuff! We have a massive update coming for the Apple devices! We are building our launch test candidate tonight, so it’s coming out soon. Here are the patch notes for update:
We’re ten days in on our Windows launch, and have 300+ user ratings by now. Average global score is 4.2 of 5 stars, which we are really happy with! And it keeps going up. In some countries we are even among top 5 highest rated games of all times. Great that people on the Windows platform enjoys Trolls so much! This version also includes a range of updates not yet launched on other platforms, so we’re happy that our continued polishing seems to work as intended.
We have been getting quite a lot of emails from customers who have not been able to progress in the game past level 6! We have worked around the clock to first figure it out, and later fix the issue. We’re happy to say that the issue is now solved, and as of yesterday a new functional build went live. We’re sorry about any inconvenience this caused. We had issues with a third party store tool which never appeared during our QA process, and over the last couple of days we had to throw ourselves around and code our own store solution. We have a couple of sleepy coders right now, but hopefully a bunch of happy players who get to experience the full Trolls experience!
We’re happy to say that we are off to a promising start on the Windows Store. We’re currently #1 on the charts among the new and rising games. We’re also top 8 on the charts for top Free games, as well as top 8 overall on games when it comes to user ratings!! With 4.7 out of 5 stars given by customers, at least the initial wave of customers have greatly enjoyed the experience. So, positive start, and a good motivation for the devs to keep on making Trolls the best possible game it can be!
