    Top Score for Latest Social Sim Game Demonstrates Development Muscle and Innovation in Category


    NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Gameloft®, a leading publisher and developer of video games for mobile phones, today announced that it has been awarded IGN’s “Editors Choice Award” coupled with an outstanding score of 9 out of 10 for their recent social sim release, American PopStar: Road to Celebrity. With a strong history of successful social sim titles on the mobile platform this latest achievement for Gameloft underscores the publisher’s strength in this category as well as its success in developing original IPs.

Generate a loyal fan base using tricks of the trade, play up to the 24/7 camera crew following you, record an album worthy of large concert halls, and basically- do whatever it takes to reach global music stardom.
