The quarter contributed to an overall 15 percent growth for the first half of its fiscal year, driven by sales in emerging countries and growth in the smartphone and tablet markets: according to the company, smartphone and tablet game sales were up 55 percent year-on-year, and represented 30 percent of the company's total sales. "The dynamism of the smartphone and tablet market should continue sustaining Gameloft's growth in the upcoming quarters," the company said in a statement.
