TORONTO, Aug. 9, 2022 /CNW/ - PopReach Corporation ("PopReach" or the "Company") (TSXV: POPR) (OTCQX: POPRF) is pleased to announce that Smurfs Magic Match, the newest mobile game revitalized by its PopReach Games business unit, has surpassed 1 million cumulative downloads on the Apple App Store and Google Play stores.

"We're very happy with the performance Smurfs Magic Match at this early stage of its life cycle. It's been well received on both major mobile platforms, having already been featured in both the Google Play and Apple App Store over the past several months, validating the game's high quality along with the brands ongoing appeal," said Jon Walsh, CEO of PopReach. "Most importantly, our players are really enjoying the game, as evidenced by its 4.7/5 star average with tens of thousands of reviews."

In 2019 PopReach acquired a portfolio of games based on the Smurfs IP, licensed from Lafig Belgium S.A., including Smurfs' Village and a match 3 game. Smurfs Magic Match is the revitalized title based on this match 3 game, rebuilt in the Unity game engine, and ultimately soft launched in late 2021.

"Our games team has done a great job breathing new life into the Smurfs match 3 game, re-envisioned for the modern player, and the results to date have been exceptional," added Christopher Locke, President of PopReach. "The game has an exciting future, and is a validation of PopReach Games' strategy of acquiring successful products built around strong brands, and revitalizing them for future growth."
