Since 2009 Youdagames has started to broaden its horizon with developing games for other platforms more than online and pc downloadable.
In December 2009, Youdagames released its first game, the very successful casual poker game Governor of Poker on iPhone and iPod Touch.
For 2010 a couple of iPhone game releases are planned.
Governor of Poker
Following the huge success of the casual downloadable and online version of Governor of Poker, Youdagames decided to bring this success to the iPhone. Governor of Poker is the first casual poker game, where you do not play for real money. Nevertheless this game is at least as addictive as non casual poker games.
The iPhone version of the game was launched in the beginning of December and is doing very well in the rankings of the Card & Board Game categories worldwide. In several countries the game reached the Top 10 of game apps in the iPhone App Stores.
"With the release of Governor of Poker on iPhone en iPod Touch we have made a next big step in broadening our reach in the casual games market. With the huge successes we have had already with the online and download version of the game and the well-known Youdagames brand we have build in the last couple of years, we are convinced also this version of the game will be a big success and makes it possible to reach even more people with our quality casual games”, says Jurriaan van Teunenbroek, COO at Youdagames.
Governor of Poker for iPhone and iPod Touch is available for $4.99 in the iTunes App Store. A free demo version the game Governor of Poker Lite is also available here. To check out the game go here: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/governor-of-poker-lite/id345044012?mt=8
