Kiloo, the developer of Subway Surfers which was on fire in mobile app stores in 2012, announced that it has released MetroLand, an exclusive game for Huawei AppGallery. The endless arcade runner game has already attracted the attention of mobile players.
If we talk a little bit about the game, as the name suggests, MetroLand takes place in a metropolitan environment. MetroLand invites players to become young, energetic and daring explorers and sprint across an endless track to beat the evil MegaCorp guards. As you progress through the game, seven different areas are unlocked. The game aims to exemplify busy and modern city life with an emphasis on mobility, speed, and excitement.
Kiloo Games inspired some of the most downloaded endless running games on the market, including its own game, and took MetroLand to the next level. It brought together new design trends in the game and added meta elements to the game to appeal to a wider variety of user profiles.
Kiloo CEO Jacob Møller said the following about the game:
“We have gathered all our learnings from working on endless running games over the years and condensed them into our take on the perfect, casual runner. MetroLand is instantly familiar and engaging, but still holds surprising twists and innovations for all those who are brave enough to travel to MetroLand and join our group of charismatic youngsters in their playful rebellion against MegaCorp, the antagonists of the game.”
Together with MetroLand, Kiloo Games published a game for the first time on Huawei AppGallery before Google Play Store and App Store. AppGallery, the official Huawei distribution platform for apps and games, is pre-installed on all Huawei smartphones. By downloading the AppGallery, players can join the gaming community of millions of active players and take advantage of its exclusive catalog and offers.
VP of Huawei Mobile Services, Dr. Jaime Gonzalo made the following comments on the subject:
“Games can be longer or shorter, easier or harder, cartoonish or realistic. But ultimately what separates good games from great ones is their level of fun. And that´s precisely the key criteria for the AppGallery editors to cherry-pick the best games in the market for our users. With that logic in mind, we are extremely pleased to offer to all AppGallery users across all Android smartphones, the next generation of endless runners, from the hands of those who hold the crown in that genre, the outstanding Kiloo team.”
Over the past year, AppGallery has firmly established itself as the third-largest app store in the world, with 580 million monthly active users worldwide (10% more than last year). More than 187,000 apps are now integrated with HMS Core and there is an uplift of 56% YoY in app distributions outside of China.
