NEUCHATEL, Switzerland - Oct. 17, 2012 - Miniclip, the world's top mobile and online games provider, today announces that their mining adventure, Rail Rush, has surpassed two million mobile downloads only a month after launch. Released on September 13, Rail Rush quickly became one of the top paid apps in the iOS store and one of the leading free games in the Google Play store.  

In Rail Rush, players must accelerate through dangerous mines on insanely fast rails to collect gems and gold. Users can choose from four different characters and six thrilling environments to earn power ups and in-game achievements through various missions in the action packed game.

Miniclip, the world's No. 1 online games site and successful mobile publisher, most recently surpassed 100 million downloads across the company's mobile titles and with its new cross-platform initiative, it has become the first company to simultaneously launch new games across online, iPhone and Android. Users can instantly play mobile games online, share it with their friends and download it to their iPhone, Android or Windows Phone. For those players that enjoy competing with big groups, Miniclip is also implementing its new multiplayer server technology to run game tournaments in real time online and on mobile. Popular games in its expansive library include Extreme Skater, Hambo, Gravity Guy and Monster Island.
