Since the start of the year 2021, Athena Studio has seen over 10 million users spend a total of 2 billion hours playing their portfolio of titles—yes you read that correctly! Two billion hours of gameplay were registered in under four months.
A great deal of this success is attributed to Athena’s innovative block puzzle game series, Woody.
The inaugural title, Woody Battle, was globally featured in April 2019 on the Google Play Store during its release and has continued to remain at the top of the charts in the app stores ever since.
Since then, the wooden jigsaw series has spawned five more block-based titles:
- Woody 99
- Woody 88
- Woody Cross
- Woody Poly
- Woody Dice Merge
These titles helped cement Athena’s reputation as one of the leading mobile game companies in the casual space, but how did they get there and what makes the games so popular?
