Pocket God becomes first paid iPhone app past 2m mark

Bolt Creative game sells 53k in one day

Bolt Creative's Pocket God has become the first paid iPhone app to reach over two million downloads.

Since its release, the $0.99 game has received nearly 30 free updates and grown its community size significantly. Its most successful day saw sales of 53,000, and it was downloaded over 100,000 times a week during the 2009 holiday season.

"We couldn't be happier with the turnout we've seen at the island," said Bolt's CEO Dave Castelnuovo."The community has been absolutely incredible embracing this game. From the thousands of YouTube videos to the homemade Halloween costumes to the valuable user feedback we've received, we can't thank our community enough for our success."

Earlier this month, Apple revealed that the App Store had reached three billion downloads in its 18 months since launch.
