When smartphones meet free-to-play games it creates a business model that game maker Glu Mobile Inc. (NASDAQ: GLUU) is exploiting to the hilt.
On Jan. 27, the San Mateo-based company's stock volume soared with 4,548,417 shares changing hands, substantially higher than its three-month average volume of 3,180,520 shares.
The uptick in volume is being sparked in part by the bevy of new games being released by Glu Mobile for smart phones.
Releases Bevy of New Games
Here a summary of some of the new releases:
On Jan. 9, Glu Mobile released its new Robocop mobile game, which in addition to offering players the use of experimental weapons and drone strikes, players face hostage, onslaught, survival, and escalation missions. Daily challenge missions test the skills acquired throughout training. To defeat tougher levels and hardcore criminals, players can upgrade their weapons, skills, and gear to build the ultimate crime-fighting machine.
On Jan. 15, Glu introduced its Defenders & Dragons for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. Defenders & Dragons is a fantasy themed tower-defense title from Glu featuring medieval heroes, multiple enemies, and high-energy gameplay. Players choose from five different characters as they fight to protect the seals of The Three Realms and defeat the evil Balewyrm. Multiplayer collection battles allow players to challenge their friends and earn rewards.
On Jan. 23, Glu rolled out Motocross Meltdown on the App Store and Google Play. Enter the fast-paced world of Motocross racing, and push the limits for big air, speed, and style to become the undisputed champion! With hundreds of different bike configurations, players can fine-tune their ride to dominate the competition. The game exclusively features X Games bronze medalist and world record holder, Wes Agee, and Supercross champion and X Games gold medalist, Josh Hansen.
The game-making business is a little like the movie business in that a studio needs a big hit to establish a foothold in the marketplace. Glu Mobile already has that hit with its Deer Hunter game for smartphones. It was recently expanded to Facebook.
Although the gaming industry is inherently risky, of the nine analysts covering Glu Mobile, six recommend a "strong buy," of its stock while three recommend a "hold."
