French hypercasual outfit TapNation has revealed that it has surpassed more than 500 million downloads in its portfolio.

Founded in 2019, the studio has released 15 hypercasual games on the App Store and Google Play that gross over 40 million MAUs.

According to the publisher’s site, its three most downloaded games are Ice Cream Inc. with 171 million downloads, followed by Giant Rush (125 million downloads) and Guess Their Answer (28 million).

“A landmark year”

“Reaching 500 million lifetime downloads was a great way to kick off what is shaping up to be a pivotal year for TapNation,” said TapNation CEO Hervé Montoute.

“Three years ago we turned an idea into a project, now it’s become a real success. We are delighted to be able to work with such talented hyper and hybrid casual studios, a huge thank you and well done to all who have made it possible to reach this milestone. We are excited about what lies ahead!”

Looking ahead, TapNation said it will “further grow” its profile in the mobile games industry, for example through partnerships with new studios. In its three years of existence, TapNation has partnered with over 100 studios worldwide.

In addition to new partnerships, TapNation plans to scale its team, which currently numbers 50 employees, with plans to double by the end of 2022.
