Tech Garden Startup Launches Mobile Game Worldwide

Lake Effect Applications, a Tech Garden member and the only gaming studio in Central New York, launched its newest mobile game, “Trigger Fist: Global Operations Assault Team (G.O.A.T).” Lake Effect’s first game, “StickBo,” reached No. 1 on the iTunes App Store in 2010. The follow-up, “Trigger Fist,” which has more than 23 million downloads to date, changed people’s minds on what was possible on mobile devices in 2012.

Lake Effect Applications was founded in 2010 and has been a member of CenterState CEO’s Tech Garden since 2014. John Spatola, CEO and founder of Lake Effect Applications, attests to the value of being part of the local entrepreneurship community.

“Being part of The Tech Garden is an asset to us because they provide quality mentorship, and their ability to reach the local community and spread the word about our products is unparalleled,” Spatola said. “Gaming is so prolific now that everyone either plays video games or knows someone who does. It’s amazing to walk down the street and see someone playing your game on their iPhone.”

“Trigger Fist: G.O.A.T.” is available for iOS devices in the iTunes App Store. Help put Syracuse on the gaming world’s map. Spread the word or download it now at https://goo.gl/ygzn7W
