Antstream Arcade has announced its partnership with Samsung, which will see the retro cloud gaming service featured on the Samsung Gaming Hub found on Samsung’s 2022 Smart TVs and Monitors – bringing more than 1500 retro arcade games to players without the need to download or install.

Antstream Arcade will be adding a new dimension to cloud play, with players being able to battle it out in weekly tournaments and exclusive multiplayer game modes to compliment the other already available services such as Xbox Game Pass, Amazon Luna, GeForce Now and Utomik. 

Antstream Arcade’s low cost is no barrier to enjoying casual arcade gaming at just £/$ 3.33 per month for an all-you-can-eat experience.

This is another exciting step for Retro gaming fans and a huge leap forward in Antstream Arcade’s mission to ensure that players everywhere can play and compete in the world’s largest collection of retro games, on any device,” said Steve Cottam, CEO of Antstream Arcade. “By enabling players to battle their friends and the retro community on their Samsung Smart TVs and Monitors through the Samsung Gaming Hub, we are not only making retro gaming more accessible than ever before – but delivering new ways to play some of the most beloved games ever created.”

Mike Lucero, Director of Product Management for Gaming at Samsung, said: “Antstream Arcade brings more than 1500 retro arcade games to the Samsung Gaming Hub giving players access to an even wider variety of games than ever before. We can’t wait to hear what players think of Antstream Arcade as we continue to expand the Gaming Hub as the number one destination for all things gaming.”

The Samsung Gaming Hub started rolling out to 2022 Samsung Smart TVs and Monitors in June. The game discovery platform brings together the best of gaming all in one place, with easy access to cloud gaming and support for Bluetooth controllers and headsets.

Flexion, the games marketing company, has signed an agreement with Fingersoft to publish the developer’s worldwide hit mobile casual games Hill Climb Racing and Hill Climb Racing 2 on the alternative app stores. Flexion will distribute the games on the Amazon Appstore, ONE store, Samsung Galaxy Store and Huawei’s AppGallery in Q2 2023.

Hill Climb Racing and Hill Climb Racing 2 combined have accumulated over two billion installs and over €180M in net revenue across all its mobile platforms. Flexion’s distribution services will add revenue and new players from the alternative app stores through monetisation, platform relations and new user acquisition. There will be little upfront cost or work being required of the Fingersoft team. For Fingersoft, the partnership with Flexion represents an opportunity to improve their brand and product recognition, and reach new users outside its existing distribution channels.

“Flexion is adding an average of 10% to a game’s Google Play revenue by taking it to the alternative app stores. We have more than 100 people with expertise and experience, and technology in growing revenue and audiences on the alternative app stores. No one else can offer this. We can’t wait to make Fingersoft’s hit games climb even higher,” Jens Lauritzson, CEO of Flexion, said.

“The alternative distribution market has traditionally been difficult to evaluate for both developers and investors due to the lack of official performance data. But the strong growth in Flexion is an indication that the alternative app stores have reached such a level that even the biggest independent developers like Fingersoft are starting to take an interest,” Jens added.

This can be seen in the German annual charts for the bestselling PC and console games that were released in 2022. The hit sports game ‘EA SPORTS FIFA 23’ (Electronic Arts) captured first place in the list of bestselling new game releases in 2022. Another major success: ‘Pokémon Legends: Arceus’ (Nintendo) from the popular Pokémon series for the Nintendo Switch. This action role-playing game took second place in the list of bestselling games for the year just ended. Third place in the German charts for 2022 was secured by the award-winning open-world game ‘ELDEN RING’ (Bandai Namco Entertainment), which was the result of a collaboration between game developer Hidetaka Miyazaki and author George R. R. Martin. Just two months after its release at the end of October 2022, first-person shooter game ‘Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II’ (Activision) made it into fourth place. It was followed in fifth place by the action-adventure game ‘LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga’ (Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment), whose missions are based on the most important events from the nine ‘Star Wars’ films.
