HCM CITY — Amanotes, a mobile game publisher based in Việt Nam, has been ranked among the top positions worldwide in two recent major surveys of the rapidly growing global mobile market.
According to App Annie, one of the most-cited mobile insights organisations, Amanotes was the number-one mobile game publisher from Southeast Asia in the last quarter of 2019 in terms of download performance in both the iOS App Store and Google Play Store.
The company was also ranked eighth in game downloads for the fourth quarter of 2019 in the US. Worldwide, App Annie ranks Amanotes among the top 15 mobile game publishers and is one of the top 20 publishers of mobile apps across all categories.
“Mobile is now the most popular gaming platform worldwide and casual games make up the lion’s share of downloads,” said App Annie's Managing Director for APAC Cindy Deng.
“Amanotes is a great example that is not only taking advantage of the mobile device to deliver gaming experiences but, by combining it with music, it keeps players engaged and coming back for more.”
Moreover, Sensor Tower’s Store Intelligence Data Digest had already ranked Amanotes as the number-1 mobile game publisher from Southeast Asia in 2019.
Amanotes was the only Southeast Asian publisher to crack Sensor Tower’s top 20, making it one of the top 10 mobile games publishers in the world.
App Annie reports that mobile games account for 33 per cent of all app downloads and 72 per cent of consumers spend in app stores. According to the Global Games Market Report 2019 by NewZoo, mobile gaming is already bigger than PC and Console ones, accounting for 45 per cent of the global games market and it is forecasted to generate $95.4 billion revenue by 2022.
Amanotes was founded in Viet Nam in 2014 by CEO Vo Tuan Binh and co-founder Nguyen Tuan Cuong. Its main office is in Binh Thanh District, HCM City. Nguyen Tuan Cuong was recently included in Forbes Vietnam’s 30 Under 30 list of the most prominent young faces in Vietnam. — VNS
