G5 Entertainment announced this morning that it is teaming up with the developers of HipSoft to bring their “Build-a-lot” franchise to iOS and Android. “Build-a-lot” has been selling over one million copies on PC and spent more than 5840 days in the Top 10 Charts of leading portals. The concept is similar to G5 Entertainments “Virtual City” with more focus on building houses rather than complete cities: gamers can create, upgrade and then sell the houses of their dreams.
Looking on HipSoft’s homepage, the company has so far published 6 different versions of the “Build-a-lot” franchise. The first two of them were ported to iOS by Glu Mobile so if G5 Entertainment was to port all the remaining 4 versions to iPhone, iPad and Android we would see 12 new games to be released only from this co-operation.
Certainly a promising announcement. G5 Entertainment is expanding its network of co-operation partners with a high-calibre addition. From the look of it, HipSoft’s games seem to be perfectly fit for the touchscreens.
