Published on: 19th December 2012

Playmobil and Gameloft have announced the launch of the first Playmobil App on iOS.

Playmobil Pirates, the first Playmobil game for a digital platform, is now available as a free download on iOS and is coming soon to Google Play. The app is launched worldwide in ten different languages. The launch is the result of a collaboration between Playmobil and Gameloft.

Graphics within the game stay true to the original Playmobil figures. The game features an immersive pirate universe full of swashbuckling characters, quests, mini-games, and more. Fans can meet popular figures, ships and buildings from Playmobil’s newest Pirates line, as well as Playmobil classics; they can also build their own pirate camp and recruit crew members. Fans who would like to speed up the expansion of their empire will have the option to buy additional features.

Christian Buchner, project manager, Playmobil, said: “With Gameloft comes a reputation of an experienced player in the market of mobile and social games. We are excited about bringing our pirates to the digital world via a creative platform so entertainingly and in such great detail. With the first Playmobil app, we are not only offering our fans a totally new mobile gaming experience, but are kick-starting our presence in the booming Smartphone and tablet market to enable us to make new and existing fans even more enthusiastic about our brand.”
