Spazzle Takes Off in Asian Countries

This morning I was entering our download information for Spazzle into the January spreadsheet and noticed something very different happening with our numbers. Normally, our percentage of international downloads is about 21% (see dates 12/28-12/31 in the chart below). But for the period 1/1 through 1/10, I noticed that our international downloads accounted for a whopping 52% of our downloads! Hm, this required further investigation…

As it turns out, there has been a big spike in downloads coming from Taiwan. The following graph shows just the Taiwanese downloads for the same time period:

We checked our app rankings in Taiwan, and sure enough, we’ve climbed the charts to the #21 game overall and the #1 free game. We’ve also seen increases in other Asian countries, although the bumps have not been quite as dramatic as in Taiwan. We’re not sure what has caused the sudden interest in our game in the Asian markets, but we sure do appreciate the business from the Taiwanese customers and hope that the folks on the other side of the world are enjoying the game!
