According to EducateTube.com, 48 hours of video are uploaded every minute and more than 2.8 billion videos will be on YouTube by 2013. (Oct. 2012) Amazing isn’t it? If you think about the fact that YouTube was established in just 2005, it’s a surprising number for sure. It is impossible to watch every one of them, but there are certainly some videos that you MUST NOT miss. The Com2uS YouTube page, where you can see our latest trailers and teasers, had a blast last year too. We had over 11.5 million views in the second half of 2012 alone! I want to show you our three most-viewed videos! If you missed them, here’s your chance to catch up!
With over 1.4 million views, SwingShot got the honor as the best Com2uS video in the second half of last year! A wicked forest witch curses innocent animals just because she’s… bored? This cartoony video with a fun behind-the-scene story surely got people’s attention. The funny faces of animals when they got hit by these huge rocks always makes me laugh. Check it out!
The Homerun Battle series is one of our proudest achievements. And you can feel that pride in this video! The debut of a new sexy slugger was a hot issue back in 2012, and when she hits home runs and the ball flies across through atmosphere into space, it’s just magnificent! What is battle like in space? Watch it yourself. With also over 1.4 million views, the HOMERUN BATTLE 2 Trailer takes second place honors!
This little video (because it’s only 24 seconds) takes the bronze with just… 1 million views! All I can say about it is that… a little pony runs, and it multiplies and then multiplies again. How did this movie get over a million views? That is the real mystery. LOL! But one thing’s for sure, you can’t help but smile after watching it!
Valentine’s Day is only a week away! Who’s your Valentine this year? I bet some of you have hearts that are already starting to beat faster… and maybe some of you are looking for some sleeping pills to get you through all of Valentine ’s Day like it never happened! (Don’t do it! You never know who’s going to text you on Valentine’s Day…) We at Com2uS, in hopes of adding a little bit of loveliness and sweetness to your Valentine’s Day, would like to deliver some awesome Valentine’s Day update news for your favorite games: Tiny Farm, Magic Tree, Style Starlet, and Homerun Battle 2!
Lastly, you know what they say; The greatest of them all is LOVE.
[Derby Days - iOS/Android] To give you just a little bit more of sweetness, new horses and items are added in Derby Days. Yeap, it’s a Valentine’s Day update! Cupcake of Love, Pink Frosty Cupcake, Hear Candy, Chocolate Box, and even a Chocolate House! How sweet and lovely they sounds. As soon as I saw those three adorable cupcakes, I placed them on my farm. (Yeap I’m also a huge fan of Cupcake Wars) Jenny is in a lovely uniform and horses are now training by pulling a wagon full of roses and carnations. Derby Days’ is just full of love right now! ;D
[Tiny Farm - iOS / Android] In continuation of last year’s Valentine’s Day update, we added three new Valentine’s Day animals this year. Valentine Duck, Valentine Pig and… Valentine Fox! How can you get them? By breeding your animals of course! If you breed animals you’ll get Valentine’s Eggs. And when you get certain number of Valentine’s Eggs, you’ll also get a Valentine’s Day Present. And you get your Valentine’s Day Animals from your Valentine’s Day Present! It’s a little tricky to get the Fox because you need to collect all five Valentine’s Day animals to get it.
Oh, and another sweet deal! You’ll get up to 30% extra Bells if you purchase Bells before February, 11th. Sweet~!
[Magic Tree-iOS / Android] We added new Trees and Costumes in Magic Tree! A tree that looks like a cupid, a Valentine’s Day present box, and even like an envelope filled with hears! Aren’t they just lovely? They really are must-haves to fill your Magic Tree world with love, love, and LOVE! (Update is coming next week!)
[Style Starlet - iOS /Android] If you are a true fashionista, you won’t wear an old dress on Valentine’s Day date right? And what do you need to get the sexy stilettos, and the dress that will make you the most special woman in the world? Cash – Cold, Hard. Cash. Oh, don’t frown just yet! Style Starlet is having a huge sale! If you buy Cash in the Style Starlet Store, you’ll get up to 50% extra just for buying! What a deal!!
[Homerun Battle 2 - iOS /Android] Oh, come on. You’re not sitting there thinking, “I’ll have nothing to do with this stupid cupid day or whatever,” are you? L But if you are really stuck there, we’ve created an event to blow away your gloominess and cheer you up in Homerun Battle 2! You’ll get lots of extra Gold balls and XP if you play during the event! The devs are working hard to make this event go live so I’ll give out the notice as soon as it starts! So please stay tuned.
To showcase the new ‘All Share Cast’ function of Samsung’s Smart TV, Com2uS’s global hit mobile game Homerun Battle 2 was featured at Samsung Electronics’ CES booth this week. Homerun Battle 2 is a home run derby game, featuring ground-breaking global multiplayer match up that originally made it a classic. Along with the prequel, Homerun Battle 3D, the series accumulated 25 million downloads worldwide by the end of 2012.
At CES, Homerun Battle 2 was optimized and specifically designed to show off the brand-new ‘All Share Cast’ tech of the Samsung Smart TV, which allowed a player to swing a Galaxy Note 2 simulating a baseball bat to play the game. Check out Homerun Battle 2 for iOS and Android!

Well, I thought it would be pretty cool to visit some of our awesome developers here at Com2uS and see what they had to say about 2013! It’s better than me saying something cliché like ‘Happy New Year’s on behalf of Com2uS, right? So, for this month’s expedition I decided to interview a couple super cool Com2us employees and see what messages they had for our fans! And here they are.
2012 is finally over. Talking animals, Tiny Beaches, Toy Villages and so many events… It was such a busy year for TinyFarm but I think it was worth the effort! 10 million downloads and a million daily active users! We couldn’t have accomplished these great numbers without our fans. So I want to thank you for loving TinyFarm last year and don’t forget to look out for lots of surprises this upcoming year. Happy 2013 fans! Love you!! (Hee-Jin Kim, Game Designer of Tiny Farm)
2012 brought us so many wonderful things… At Com2us especially! We have a new building, our very own coffee shop, and so many new friends to work with. But if 2012 was great, 2013 promises to be even more exciting! People everywhere are celebrating new starts, progress towards their goals, and a whole new world of games they can play with their friends. Let’s welcome 2013 with open arms, and do everything we can to make it the best year yet! (Peter Van Dyke – Producer on Derby Days, currently Creative Co-Director)
2012 has been a truly miraculous year for Com2uS! We did our best to provide all of our users around the world with the best mobile gaming experience we could. But 2013 is going to be another exciting year for us and also for all of you! Keep your heads up. 2013 will be an incredible new beginning for Com2uS! Stay Tuned!

Yes, three hundred and two days are gone and only sixty three days remain ‘til the year’s out.
And here we are again, thinking, ‘What did I do this year?’ ‘What have I achieved so far?’ and ‘What is this one big thing that I just gotta do before 2012 is over?’
It might be a little stressful to think ‘Only two months ‘til 2013?’, but isn’t it exciting to actually make up your mind to achieve something? It is for me!
We at Com2uS believe that we’ve brought more fun to the world this year than ever before, and we are grateful for that. We’ve launched so many great games and had so many cool events and contests for our fans! The only mission left for us is to make this year’s Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays even more exciting!
Anyways! Now is the time when you can start (or finish!) what you have planned to do all year long but haven’t had time for! Those plans could be sharing more love with your family, or even reaching a higher point than anyone else in the Escape the Ape! If there are too many, I recommend you to try to put them in order and head for your top 3.
The end is always more important than the beginning. Let’s close the year with the biggest smiles we can and start today! No more delays!
So, why don’t we put our right hands over our hearts, close our eyes, and ask ourselves, really… ‘What is the last big thing that I just gotta do before the year’s out?’ When you’ve got it, share your answer in a comment below. We will cheer for you!
Alrighty, the atmosphere is getting even spookier now… Please hold on tight to anything around you because you are about to scream!

Hold on, what is MG? It’s the first portable gaming system for the Android market! You can enjoy all sorts of games on Android market on MG. Great, isn’t it? The release of this great device is a great news for parents with kids saying “Can I get a smartphone?” or repeating “Can I use your smartphone? I want to play a game”. With MG, parents don’t need to worry about the big expense of packaged video games or the monthly data plans that come with smartphones.
And we, Com2uS, is glad to announce that 8 of our best games will be pre-loaded on the MG device!

PLAYMG CORP ANNOUNCES PARTNERSHIP WITH AWARD-WINNING DEVELOPER AND PUBLISHER COM2US TO PROVIDE
EIGHT PRELOADED GAMES ON THE MG-FIRST DEDICATED POCKETABLE APP PLAYING DEVICE FOR THE ANDROID MARKET
Popular Game Titles Slice It, Swing Shot, Homerun Battle2, Tiny Farm, Tower Defense,
9 Innings Baseball, Super Action Hero and Derby Days Will All be Preloaded
SAN DIEGO, CA – Sept. 21, 2012 – PlayMG™ Corp., A startup comprised of electronics, game and social industry veterans who have come together to fuel the redesign of gaming™ by bringing app playing affordably to kids and teens, announces a partnership with award-winning Com2uS to provide eight preloaded games on the all-new MG™—the first dedicated Wi-Fi pocketable app playing device for the Android market, launching this holiday season.
Ranked as the number one provider of mobile games in Korea, Com2uS’ award-winning games and worldwide reputation as a quality developer and publisher make Com2uS the perfect partner in PlayMG’s effort to provide superior gaming content preloaded on the MG. Com2uS’ popular game titles Slice It, Swing Shot, Homerun Battle2, Tiny Farm, Tower Defense, 9 Innings Baseball, Super Action Hero and Derby Days will all be preloaded on the MG. “We take pride in providing memorable gaming experiences and leading the future in mobile gaming,” said Don Lim, General Manager, Com2uS America. “We believe the MG is going to bring portable app gaming to many kids who haven’t been able to enjoy it before—we really wanted to be a part of that.”
“We think this partnership with Com2uS really delivers on our promise to make a dedicated portable gaming system that affordably brings more game into people’s lives,” said Taylor Cavanah, PlayMG Founding Partner and Meta Gamer. “I am personally a big fan of Com2uS and think it is fantastic that MG owners can immediately open the box and start playing a variety of games.”
The MG fills a huge void currently experienced by kids and teens who either are not old enough to have their own smartphones, or whose parents have found data plans cost prohibitive. The MG system means many kids and teens will finally be able to enter the world of freemium apps, and all of the abilities that come with it, while parents can safely and affordably give it to them. The cost savings and collaboration are only two aspects of the MG’s benefits for parents. With the MG, kids will finally stop asking to borrow Mom and Dad’s smartphone or tablet.

Since then, Com2uS has developed a reputation for creating innovative and entertaining games and applications around the world, which are available in over 40 countries in Asia, Europe and North America.
