New York, NY, Oct. 12, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Tapinator, Inc. (OTCQB: TAPM), a developer and publisher of mobile games on the iOS, Google Play and Amazon platforms, today announces that it will launch an extensive update to its hit game, Dice Mage 2, on November 2, 2017, available on both Apple’s iOS platform and Google’s Play platform. In order to bring this unique, best-in-class role playing game (RPG) to mobile players worldwide, Tapinator has once again joined forces with developer Boarding Party Games of Vancouver, Canada.
Following its initial launch on iOS in August, Dice Mage 2 was featured by Apple as a “New Game We Love,” and was awarded a prized top banner placement in 147 countries, including the United States. To-date, Dice Mage 2 has demonstrated the following metrics:
- Nearly 600,000 player downloads
- Excellent rating of 4.5 (out of 5.0) stars, based on over 1,100 player reviews
- On iOS, reached #52 Top Grossing for Adventure Games in the United States
- On iOS, reached #82 Top Grossing for Role Playing Games in the United States
- Generated over $135,000 in gross bookings during the first 30 days after global launch
The update will create additional feature opportunities for Dice Mage 2 on both major app platforms and will improve engagement and monetization within the game. The update introduces a crafting system to the title, enabling players to sell their unused items in exchange for magical dust. By combining this magical dust with gems, players can boost the stats on their favorite items. With even deeper metagame, players will now clear out their unused items while customizing their favorite equipment.
“We achieved a successful initial launch with Dice Mage 2 and we look forward to the release of this first major update. We believe that, given the player response seen by the game thus far, Apple and Google will consider the game for significant editorial opportunities, thereby accelerating growth. Overall, Dice Mage 2 is a rare type of game that has longevity in terms of gameplay that can spawn sequels and spinoffs. We look forward to capitalizing on these opportunities in the future,” says Tapinator CEO Ilya Nikolayev.
The Dice Mage 2 update is one of several planned releases for Tapinator’s Full-Featured Games division this year. Other releases will be announced in the coming weeks, including a unique puzzle game, ColorFill, which will launch globally in December, prior to the holiday season.

Words such as “believe,” "may," "will" "expect," "anticipate," "estimate," "intend," and similar expressions (as well as other words or expressions referencing future events, conditions or circumstances) are intended to identify forward-looking statements. Our statements regarding our financial outlook for the remainder of the fiscal year 2017 and the full fiscal year 2018 contained in this press release are forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements in this release involve substantial risks and uncertainties that could cause the next stage of our development, the deleveraging and strengthening of our balance sheet and the execution of our organic growth strategy to differ significantly from those expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements. Such risks and uncertainties include, among others, our belief that our overall growth will continue and our expectation that Full-Featured Games bookings will increase by more than 200% in 2017 as compared to 2016. Tapinator undertakes no obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements. The quoting and trading of the company's common stock on the OTC Market Group's OTC Link quotation system is often thin and characterized by wide fluctuations in trading prices, due to many factors that may have little to do with the company's operations or business prospects. As a result, there may be volatility in the market price of the shares of the company's common stock for reasons unrelated to operating performance. Moreover, the OTC Market Group's OTC Link quotation system is not a stock exchange, and trading of securities on it is often more sporadic than trading of securities listed on the NASDAQ Stock market or another securities exchange. Accordingly, stockholders may have difficulty reselling any of their shares. For a further description of the risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ from those expressed in these forward-looking statements, as well as risks relating to the business of the company, see Tapinator's Risk Factors which are available within the disclaimers section of Tapinator.com.
