Singapore, 30 October 2017: Unstoppable Rex, a new mobile game developed by Sandbox Global Co Ltd and marketed by Singapore Exchange listed YuuZoo Corporation Limited (“YuuZoo” SGX:AFC) has after a short period of marketing reached the #1 position in Hong Kong in action games and overall games.
A Free-2-Play runner mobile game, Unstoppable Rex has been downloaded over 186,000 times since its soft launch in July, followed by the official launch on 23 September 2017. It has generated an average per paying user (ARPPU) of 23 USD of revenue, with the game seeing around 1,960 new users per day and 1 day retention of 48%, versus an industry average of around 30%.
Set in a futuristic world, Rex is a Tyrannosaurus Rex that has been enhanced with grabbers by scientists in a laboratory. The goal is to make him bust out of the containment tube and start to rampage through the city – jumping and ducking to chomp on tasty humans, collecting treasure and avoiding obstacles like red lasers. Rex can also be upgraded to become Cyber Rex by collecting power ups to receive a Laser weapon or strap on his rocket for added destruction and chaos.
Since its release, Unstoppable Rex has been featured on the App Store under the category “New Games We Love” and “New Indie Games We Love” across South East Asia. The game has most of its downloads in Vietnam, followed by Thailand, the Philippines, Malaysia, Indonesia and Singapore.
Game features a social platform
