Trilobyte Snake gets over 50k downloads

Being a mobile app development agency doesn't leave much time for becoming an independent game developer in our own right. But slowly we are managing it. 

We released Trilobyte Snake in 2013, our first experimental game. Unlike the original, in this version we gave the food "life" and movement, a unique twist on the game. 

Trilobyte is a lush, futuristic take on the classic Snakes game, which was a popular early mobile phone game in the 1990’s. As you eat food, your character (a mathematically created triloiyte) increases in length and speed. In this version, food includes digitally animated frogs, slugs and worms, plus a spiky red predator who can tear off a chunk.

The game release has taught us much about the platforms in terms of downloads and we're please to say that over 50,000 versions of the game have been downloaded and played. The game seems particularly popular in Asia on the Windows Phone platform.

And this is the beauty of mobile app development. When you build an app and release it on all three platforms, you are accessing a market of 1.75 billion users.  

Last year got incredibly busy, so we made little progress with releasing anything else as a game developer (though we created some amazing things for our clients) but we're pleased to say that we shall be launching Trilobyte 2 on Windows within the next 8 weeks, plus a remake of an arcade classic in 3D shortly thereafter.

The new game will feature multiple levels, 3 different worlds and a variety of obstacles to make the gameplay more challenging.

This is one of the things I love about Reactor15 - we each have a passion for our respective areas of expertise. And if we weren't doing these things for work, it's a fairly safe bet that we would be doing similar things for fun. Those are the kind of people to employ.

Please download our game and rate it – we’d love your feedback!
