creative gameplay, just as Build-a-lot has continued to do over the
years on both PC and Mac.

popular franchise, and are excited to bring it to iOS and
Android,” said Vlad Suglobov, CEO of G5 Entertainment.

Build-a-lot games, and we're thrilled to bring these games to the
larger mobile audience.”

franchise has done so far,” said Bryan Bouwman at HipSoft,
“We look forward to working alongside G5 Entertainment on
bringing our games to new platforms and audiences.”
