Nigerian mobile gaming startup, Maliyo Games, has announced that its 3D endless runner game, Aboki Run, that was officially released this month has become the first Nigerian mobile game to be featured on Google Play Store.

“The feat which was accomplished on Friday 2nd December, 2016, has led the mobile game on a course to be the most successful 3D endless runner mobile game in the African continent,” Maliyo said in a statement.

Here’s what the company said about the game: “The game is a single-player game, which features multiple scenes including a cave, forest, town & a special Christmas scene. The player’s objective is to gather as many coins as possible while avoiding obstacles on the way. Players also get to make choices on the usage of power-ups, in-app purchases, leaderboard, scenery and character selection which is being updated regularly. It is currently available for free downloads from Google Play store on any Android supported mobile device.”

The game has been downloaded more than fifty thousand times and is enjoying great reviews especially for its his-res graphics, characters, African themed environment and visual effects.
