A month ago we were approached by App Turbo with an interesting offer to publish CRYPTICA in an “App of the day” campaign; the concept is simple and well known – giving away free copies for 24 hours and hopefully reaching new users and improving the rating in the AppStore and Google Play. A double-platform promo was scheduled on April 22 (targeting both Android and iOS).
We were expecting several thousands of downloads but when the campaign began we were amazed from the traffic.
As you can see in the graphs below the number of downloads reached more than 200,000 in one day with more than 300 ratings / comments on the markets and many emails to our support service from players asking for additional features.

Most of the downloads came from European countries such as: Germany, Italy, Spain, Netherlands, and Sweden. But a lot were also from Canada and Brazil.Overall the campaign was a huge success since most of the players before the campaign came from US and now we see very nice purchase numbers coming from Europe.
