TORRANCE, CA--(Marketwired - June 09, 2014) - JumpStart® is announcing yet another monumental addition to School of Dragons® with the release of the iPhone version of the app. School of Dragons is a critically-acclaimed science education-focused 3D massively multiplayer online roleplaying game (MMORPG) based on the How to Train Your Dragon franchise from DreamWorks Animation. The game recently won the 2014 Appy Award for the Branded Gaming App category, and boasts a user base consisting of over 5 million players.

The iPhone version of School of Dragons joins a robust family of platforms, including all web browsers, Facebook, iPad devices (available in the iTunes® app store), and Android-powered tablets (available in the Google Play™ and Amazon® app stores). In addition to these platforms, the game will also soon be available on the nabi DreamTab created by Fuhu™, a DreamWorks Animation-inspired Android-powered tablet.

"From day one of our initial game launch, our fans have been asking for a mobile version of School of Dragons. I believe we have gone above and beyond in responding to these requests, as we are now available on multiple different mobile platforms -- iOS, Android, Amazon, and Fuhu DreamTab devices. We continue to look at other platforms, and more ways to play the game are on their way," said David Lord, President and CEO of JumpStart.

Adding iPhone devices to the list of platforms compatible with the expansive, 3D MMORPG world found in School of Dragons displays a great stride in the game's overall development. JumpStart continues to widen the audience for School of Dragons by providing the game on a broad spectrum of mobile and web platforms, and will only continue to grow with time.
