Company Profile

Game Development
  • Midcore games. These are more sophisticated, deeper and smarter than classic casual games, but aren't as large-scale as triple-A projects.

Major projects include Beholder, I am not a Monster, Do Not Feed the Monkeys and more.

The company has released over 400 projects in genres such as time management, hidden object puzzle adventure (HOPA), and match-3. Alawar's casual games are available for Windows and Mac OS X (with over 70 games available in the Mac App Store). Major projects include The Treasures of Montezuma, Farm Frenzy, The House of the 1000 Doors, and more.

  • Mobile games. Since 2009, Alawar has been porting its games to popular mobile platforms such as iOS, Android, Windows Mobile, etc. The company also releases original (ShakeSpears!, Montezuma Blitz, Farm Frenzy: New Adventures, etc.) and licensed (Heroes War, etc.) free-to-play games for mobile devices.

  • Console games. Since 2010, Alawar has been porting its game brands to Nintendo and Sony consoles. In 2012, the first original Alawar console game, Treasures of Montezuma Blitz, was released.
