Mobile version of Loop Hero generates 1 million downloads in just over two months

Playdigious shared the news last week, saying that Loop Hero has reached this milestone in just over two months since its mobile launch on April 30. It added that a “significant number” of users purchased the full version, but didn’t disclose the exact figures.

“This is only the second time we offer a free, limited trial version and for this title it has been a good strategy, giving us the confidence to implement it on other titles in the future,” the publisher said in a statement.

According to AppMagic data, Loop Hero generated 1.12 million downloads on the App Store and Google Play. The US accounts for 22% of total installs, followed by Brazil (11%) and Japan (5%).

Only the first chapter of Loop Hero is available for free, and the game’s full version can be unlocked for $6.99. AppMagic estimates its lifetime mobile revenue (reduced by platform fees and inclusive taxes) at $390.8k. The US accounts for 30% of the total, followed by Japan (7%) and Germany (6.8%).
