Studio's games receive 5m downloads on iOS and Android in just two months.

UK mobile games developer Neon Play has seen its apps downloaded more than 40 million times in just two years.

As reported in Mobile Entertainment sister title Develop, the studio was launched in 2010, and quickly garnered more than 20 million downloads in its first year. That pace has continued, with five million in the last two months alone.

Neon Play games include Flick Football, Traffic Panic and Paper Glider, and 14 of its titles have reached more than one million downloads on iOS and Android.

Neon Play CEO, Oli Christie, said: “Only two months ago we were celebrating our second birthday at our Old Museum studio in Cirencester with the announcement that we had reached 35 million downloads.

“But the release of Traffic Panic London at the end of June has really boosted our tally and we’re chuffed to be able to say that we’ve now reached the 40 million download milestone.”

“I recently wrote that getting a number one in the app store is now virtually impossible due to the big developers using their financial clout to occupy the app charts, however we’ve recently had number one hits with Bravo Force: Last Stand and Ben 10 Alien Escape. Next up: the big 5-0.”
