Babil Games LLC, the Dubai and Amman based publisher of Arabic mobile- and online-game content has launched “The Admiral” “الادميرال”, a mid-core mobile game with the DNA to become the next mobile-game hit in Arabic language. The Admiral is continuing the successful track record of Babil Games’ previous releases, like Tank Storm and Nida Harb, both regular top-10 Games in their genre in both iTunes- and Google Play App-Stores in terms of revenues.


The Admiral, a mid-core strategy game that puts you in the thick of maritime warfare, where you build your naval base and command your fleets to victory in a highly competitive setting, as you forge alliances and out-smart your opponents to climb the leaderboards and dominate the high seas. The Admiral was developed by Babil Games China-partner Ray Holdings and has been fully localized in Arabic by Babil Games who is the IP-owner of the Arabic title. The Admiral has been launched on iOS and immediately featured by Apple on its iTunes app store. The Android-version will follow beginning of May.


Since it’s first year of business in 2013 Babil Games has grown from a start-up to becoming one of the leading publishers of mobile games in Arabic, turning profitable within the first year after inception and reaching 2 million downloads and Gross Revenues of around USD 4.5 million in 2015.


The launch of The Admiral is the next milestone in the company’s strategy to strengthen its position as provider of entertaining mid-core mobile content in Arabic language, thereby taking advantage of the fastest growing games market worldwide.
