COLUMBIA, MD, February 15, 2011 /24-7PressRelease/ — In the two weeks since its launch, PlayScreen LLC’s Bocce-Ball has become a runaway success with over three-quarters of a million downloads and top ranking in the USA, Italy and other markets.
This free app has climbed to top ranking in several categories, even enjoying a 4 day stretch as the #1 Free App in the Italy App Store. Bocce-Ball is categorized in the Apple App Store as Games, Arcade Games, and Sports Games. It has reached #1 in Free Sports Games, #2 in Free Arcade Games, #4 in all Free Games, and #6 in all Free Apps … as ranked in the USA App Store.
John Byrne, PlayScreen LLC’s CEO, stated, “Given the tremendous response that the app has received, PlayScreen LLC looks forward to keeping Bocce-Ball relevant, exciting, and users actively playing it … by adding the features users want most.”
Sherri Cuono, PlayScreen LLC’s CTO added, “Our goal is to pay attention to what players are saying about the game. If there are ways we can improve the game, we are going to make that happen. Within days of the release we had our first update, driven by player comments. We believe that the two most important features, based on reviews, are an improved scoring system and network play. These are coming soon.”
Bocce-Ball’s support of Apple’s Game Center allows users to compare their scores with players around the world. Daily, weekly, and all time scores are all archived and users are ranked based on score. 2-Player and Team Play allows users to pass-and-play games with their friends.
Network play is going to take everything one step further. It will allow for users to challenge their friends, or other opponents, and play live games that can be paused and resumed at their convenience no matter where their friends are. This will help increase the competitiveness of the game, while still offering the recreational fun that makes Bocce-Ball a hit.
In addition, with Verizon officially offering the iPhone last week, PlayScreen LLC expects to see their daily downloads grow dramatically. Given their current standing in the app charts within the US, they are in a promising position to experience a substantial growth in users.
William Volk PlayScreen LLC’s CCO added, “Verizon customers have been waiting for the iPhone for a long long time. Bocce-Ball takes advantage of the iPhone unique interface to give them a great introduction to an awesome phone.”
