Playmobil to release first mobile gaming app
German toyco Playmobil has entered a global partnership with digital publisher Gameloft and will release Playmobile Pirates, the company’s first app for iOS and Android smartphones and tablets.
The app, which is based on Playmobil’s popular line of pirate toys, will be available for free by the end of 2012.
Features in the new app will allow users to build their own pirate camp and recruit crew members while completing mini-games and quests.
Since its launch in 1974, more than 2.5 billion Playmobil figures have been produced.
