After naming developer Enterfly's 99c release as one of its major hopes for Q2 2011, publisher Gamevil has announced that Air Penguin revenues have topped $1 million in its first month on sale.

The success comes as a result of the release topping the App Store's paid charts in the US, France, Germany and the Netherlands, with Gamevil also citing the title's in-app purchases as a major revenue driver.

"People around the world have made their choice and spread the word about our newest game, and we're immensely grateful," said Gamevil's Youn Il Jung.

"Thanks to everyone who helped us get to this exciting time by playing Air Penguin. We've got more great things coming up for the game that we know you'll enjoy."

Gamevil expects Air Penguin to be a major contributor in what it is predicting will be a successful second quarter for the company.

The firm recently reported a rise in Q1 2011 revenues to $5.9 million, although profits were down 23 percent year on year.
