AppBox has another hit on its hands with launch of addictive new game - Thermal Rider

- Company’s third game in a row to get Apple’s seal of approval -

London, March 2017:- Leading games developer AppBox is making a happy habit of launching successful games. Its latest, Thermal Rider, is their third game in a row to be featured by Apple on iTunes in the UK, following the global success of Panic Drop and Neon Horizon.

Published by renowned Silicon Valley firm Nanovation, Thermal Rider is an action-packed flying simulator game. In Thermal Rider players soar the skies in flying wing-suits through the world’s most treacherous valleys. They use thermal lifts to glide through the air, unlocking characters and new worlds along the way. Dodging jagged rocks and navigate changing weather conditions, they can collect golden rings in this awesomely addictive, exciting game.

Inside three days Thermal Rider has raced to more than 40,000 downloads and looks set to match the worldwide success of the other games in the AppBox stable.

AppBox was founded in 2013 with a clear mission: to bring the best mobile games to a global audience and give people an entertaining experience wherever in the world they are.

Panic Drop, in particular, did just that – becoming the number one Apple iTunes action and adventure app in 11 countries and reaching the top ten in a further 60. Among the countries where it topped the charts were China, Japan, South Korea, Singapore and Australia.

AppBox also made news last year when celebrated digital entrepreneur Ted Nash joined its board, and its latest collaboration with Nanovation is further testament to its ongoing success.

Thermal Rider is available for instant download on smartphone and tablet, and comes in English, French, German, Chinese, Japanese and Spanish language versions.
