Gaming Engages Everyone!

Rethink Mobile Gaming … It’s Not What You Think 

Insight  ⇒ Mobile Gaming is No longer Male Dominated

Most pundits, upon the introduction of Glu Mobile’s new Kim Kardashian Hollywood App, said it had failure written all over it.  Not that anyone doubted Kim’s star power … but gaming is a male dominated category, so it could never succeed.

Released at the end of June, Hollywood is well on its way to over $200 million in revenue and is challenging Candy Crush and Clash of Clans.  Flurry, the leader in app analytics, recently released new research on who plays Mobile games … and it’s no longer male dominated.
