Homa Games is the world’s leading platform for creating and publishing mobile games. A successful producer of dozens of mobile games on the App Store & Google Play. In their portfolio they have more than 40 games that generated 500 million downloads.

Home Games came to AppDNA to help with App Store Optimization for Z-escape app in United States Main target: Increase presence in the App Stores through a combination of optimizing organics and conversion.


As part of the optimization process, AppDNA dove into Z-escape’s historical keyword rankings and, external marketing efforts and related apps in their hypercasual market to gain a deeper understanding of Z-escape and its targeted audience.

After further research with AppDNA’s App Store Intelligence platform, we were able to understand which keywords to include to help expand Z-escape’s keyword visibility, aligning with current search demand and popular features. AppDNA was able to identify multiple terms that had an audience overlap. 

AppDNA focused on the metadata first. We conduct a keywords analysis - selected most important keywords and optimize them with our custom ASO Framework to boost Search Visibility.
