Halfbrick Studios Pty Ltd is an Australian video game developer based in Brisbane, with remote staff in over 20 locations, and a portfolio of globally popular games — such as Fruit Ninja, Jetpack Joyride, and Dan the Man — generating over 2 billion downloads!
Halfbrick needed a measurement provider that could adhere to Apple’s privacy policies, while increasing the efficiency of its app marketing spend across the world’s largest gaming ad networks and affiliates.
Games such as Dan the Man required attribution and ROAS aggregation across multiple media sources — including search, ASO, social, referrals and traditional mobile ad networks — in order to scale.
Lastly, Halfbrick required a robust in-app measurement provider that can guide the team through the implementation of iOS14 and SKAdNetwork rollout.
To meet Halfbrick’s challenges head on, Appsflyer leveraged its dedicated real-time overview dashboard coupled with it’s market leading cost aggregation solution, Xpend.
This enabled the Halfbrick team to understand their most profitable media sources, campaigns, ad sets and ad creatives from a ROAS and ROI perspective.
