TUSTIN, CA, June 20, 2017 – Freeze Tag (OTC: FRZT), a leading creator of mobile social games, today announced that its new Garfield GO, a free-to-play, augmented reality treasure hunting game, has racked up rave reviews from players on Apple’s App Store (iOS) and Google’s Play Store (Android) in the United States, Canada and Australia.
“We’re ecstatic with the results of our product launch of Garfield GO,” said Craig Holland, CEO of Freeze Tag, “App ratings and player engagement (how long and how often players come back to play the game) are beyond our expectations. Many players have already won real prizes.”
In less than one week from launch, Freeze Tag announced that Garfield GO has received hundreds of 5 star ratings from players on Apple’s App Store and Google’s Play Store. Many bloggers and game reviewers have also chimed in with their approval and support for Garfield GO as a family friendly fun activity for the summer.
To celebrate the good news and Garfield’s 39th birthday, Freeze Tag is offering a limited edition virtual birthday hat within the Garfield GO game. Only available until June 30, players can acquire the spectacular cake hat by finding it in treasure chests or purchasing it from the hat store.
To help spread the word about the new content, Freeze Tag announced they are continuing to work with their partners Paws, Inc. and Munzee to introduce Garfield GO to the large fan base of both companies. The company also reported they are promoting the game through advertising channels such as Facebook to grow the user base.
While the game is off to a great start, Freeze Tag management indicated that they are busy working on fixes and adjustments to improve the game, some of them requested by their players. They pointed out that mobile applications require constant updates to meet the demands of the various devices and operating systems and to provide fresh content for players. The company stated that continuous analysis of player behavior provides insights and informs design decisions to help constantly improve the game, making it more fun and engaging for players.
In addition to fixes, Freeze Tag announced that they will be releasing new content for Garfield GO on a regular basis that includes additional comic strips, mini games, trinkets, hats, and of course, prizes.
