Sporos surpasses two million downloads, developer Appxplore celebrates with massive sale for both games

KUALA LUMPUR, MALAYSIA – May 15, 2013 – Appxplore today announced Blitz Mode, a lightning-fast action variant of their mobile puzzler Alien Hive that gives players just 60 seconds to rack up high scores. Available now as a free update to the iOS and Android apps, Blitz Mode drastically alters Alien Hive’s strategic gameplay, instead presenting a combo-filled time trial experience. It’s essentially a brand new game within the game. Appxplore’s other mobile puzzler Sporos has officially surpassed two million downloads and is temporarily free on iOS. The game also received a new Exploration Lab. In it, the new Jumper Cell adds the ability to teleport and transfer infections from one point to another, challenging players to hit targets using this portal. On top of all this, Appxplore is offering a variety of freebies and discounts on both games. Check out the next evolution of Alien Hive with Blitz Mode, available now for iOS and Android.View the new trailer: Alien Hive — Blitz Mode — launch trailer
