Playrix is one of the world's top mobile games and PC/Mac games developers,[2] employing more than 1000[3] people across several offices. The company has released four mobile free-to-play games: Township, Fishdom, Gardenscapes, and Homescapes. All of its projects have consistently been among the Top 50 Grossing Apps for iOS and Google Play since their release.[4]

By the end of 2016, the company was among the 20 highest grossing mobile game developers around the world.[5]

In 2016, Facebook named Gardenscapes its game of the year.[6]

In August 2017 Playrix became the highest grossing mobile game developer in Europe,[7] and as of September of the same year, it became the 9th highest on Android[8] and the 10th highest on iOS[9] worldwide. Later that month, the company released[10] their new game: Homescapes, which features Austin, the same main character in Gardenscapes.

In 2018 Playrix became the No. 9 highest grossing game publisher globally on the iOS and Google Play stores.[11]
