[This unedited press release is made available courtesy of Gamasutra and its partnership with notable game PR-related resource GamesPress.]

Free Lunch Design, a leading developer of mobile entertainment, today announced the release of Icy Tower 2 for Android devices. The chart topping title with more than 1.2 million downloads in the App Store is now out on Google Play.


Based on the popular PC game Icy Tower, the sequel was released for iOS devices 5 weeks ago. It hit the Apple App Store with a bang and soared to top rankings across the globe. The fan base echoed that bang with a loud spoken response: Where is the Android version?

Magnus Alm, CEO Free Lunch Design:

"Our intention was to focus fully on the iOS version for the first few weeks, but it quickly became apparent that our fan base was having none of that. When you’ve reached 40 million players throughout the years, disapproval gets a strong voice. We had to listen and act fast!”

The free Android version is available now on Google Play.
