MobilityWare Acquires Red Hot Mobile Game Publisher

acquisitionContinuing to grow what it calls its already thriving product portfolio, MobilityWare announced this week the acquisition of Critical Hit Software, a successful casual games developer and publisher.

Under the terms of the agreement, MobilityWare acquires the software company’s successful franchise property, ‘Jigsaw Puzzle‘, as well as ‘ColorArt: Coloring Book for Adults‘.

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed publicly as of this writing.

“Acquisitions are core to our long-term growth plan. Given the nature and audience of their games, Critical Hit Software was an ideal fit,” said Jeff Erle, CEO of MobilityWare. “There is significant audience cross-over between all of our games, which we believe will yield significant benefits in terms of marketing and cross-promotion.”

Offering over 10,000 HD puzzles, Jigsaw Puzzle is currently the most searched app for jigsaw puzzles on the Apple App Store, and is also available on Android devices through Google Play as well as the Amazon’s Kindle Fire, where it is particularly popular.

“Having conceived of, developed and nurtured Jigsaw Puzzle from the beginning, it is like our child,” mused Brian Farwell, co-founder of Critical Hit Software. “We were only willing to sell to a company that shared our passion for the game and had the resources to make Jigsaw Puzzle even more successful than we could. We feel comfortable knowing that our loyal players are in good hands.”
