Pledge51 recently announced released the next iteration in the Danfo mobile game series; Danfo Reloaded II. The game is also the first to come fully integrated with the company’s mobile gaming network; Chopup.
The game follows the continuing adventures of Kunle, who has to make up the balance payment on his bus or else he stands the chance of loosing it. Help him steer through the streets of Lagos, pick up passengers and avoid Lastma as he tried to make money.
This game is currently available on Blackberry and Java devices (with plans for Android in the near future).
The game can be downloaded here.
“Based on our understanding of Nigeria’s mobile ecosystem, the market is “feature phone first” and as a company we have focused on serving this interesting but often neglected market segment with compelling and original African content,” says Bayo Puddicombe; one of the co-founders. “By launching the Chopup platform along with the game, we hope to further enhance the mobile experience for African consumers by providing advanced gaming/entertaiment features that some have declared impossible on some of the most basic mobile devices in the market today.”
We believe that Chopup is unique because; our content speaks to a Nigerian audience and relies extensively on localized themes which people can easily relate to life in Nigeria. In addition, users have an opportunity to enhance the experience by having social interactions based on their in-game achievements.
