Palo Alto, California – Ansca Mobile today is proud to announce that Robert Nay’s BubbleBall has reached the #1 spot in the Apple App Store, displacing the popular Angry Birds Seasons. This is 14-year old Robert’s first foray into app development and he chose Ansca’s Corona SDK for its powerful and unique characteristics.

Robert, who hails from Spanish Fork, UT, started developing BubbleBall with a competing development framework, but realized that Corona SDK’s power, ease of use and advanced features gave him much more freedom to create a game characterized by its fun and addictive game play. The game features 21 levels where the player must strategically place geometric pieces to allow a ball to reach the finish line. Once the player presses the Start button, the ball and pieces take on realistic physical characteristics, thanks to Corona SDK’s powerful built-in physics engine.

Approved by Apple two weeks ago, BubbleBall has been steadily climbing the charts and was named the App of the Week in the Corona SDK app showcase on January 9. Since then its popularity has skyrocketed, culminating in its #1 spot on January 13, 2011.

We wholeheartedly congratulate Robert on his initial success and we are eagerly looking forward to his future creations. Wait until he gets a little more experience under his belt and really unleashes the power of Corona SDK! Congratulations Robert, well done!
