Founded in 2009 Backflip Studios was on the front lines of the mobile game industry. Since our very first release, Ragdoll Blaster, Backflip has continued to develop and publish absurdly fun free to play mobile games for iOS and Android devices.
In 2013 Hasbro purchased 70% of Backflips equity. This perfect partnership leverages Backflips expertise and audience and Hasbros deep library of intellectual property. Hasbro also has an eye to leveraging unique IP from Backflip into the traditional toy and game space.
Our games have been downloaded more than 300 million times and are played by tens of millions of active users each month. Our megahit Spellfall was named to the App Stores Best of 2014 and DragonVale was the #1 Top Grossing iPad app and the #4 Top Grossing iPhone app in 2012 and our players have hatched over 960 million dragons. We have been named for 5 consecutive years in the Pocket Gamers Top 50 Developers and in 2014 were the only developer to receive 4 Apple App Store Editors Choice awards.
At Backflip our work is all play.
