Game-Changer: Alictus Boosts Campaign Performance by 39% with XMP

In the highly competitive hyper-casual gaming space, Alictus pushes the boundaries of innovation.

Alictus, a Turkish studio acquired by Sciplay, has made waves with viral titles such as Fade Master, Rob Master, and Deep Clean

The challenge of increasing user acquisition efficiency looms larger than ever. Alictus’ answer to growing demands was to seek out more sophisticated ad channel management solutions. In their search, they found the answer in XMP.

Real-Time UA Optimization

As leaders in the game industry, Alictus faced a key challenge: How to optimize its UA strategy without being bogged down by the granular oversight required for multiple campaigns? 

They needed to adopt automation — but such automation had to be precise, adaptive, and capable of operating in the fast-paced environment of hyper-casual gaming.

XMP’s suite of real-time optimization tools allowed Alictus to achieve its goals with two key features:

  • Stop-Loss Initiatives: In moments where games like Rob Master faltered on key performance metrics, XMP automatically dialed down bids, preventing wasteful spending and enabling a pivot to more lucrative channels.
  • Proactive Scaling: Conversely, when Deep Clean gained a surge in ROAS, XMP increased the bid in permutations that showed growth potential by campaign, geo, or sub-source.

These automated measures ensured that Alictus’ campaigns were fine-tuned in real-time, leading to impressive reductions in manual labor and significant uplifts in campaign efficacy.

Success on Sub-Channels: Opportunities on SDK Ad Networks

Alictus’ UA strategy thrived under XMP’s advanced sub-channel optimization functionalities, giving the team freedom to funnel their resources into more fruitful areas by scrutinizing sub-channel data.

With comprehensive market performance data, Alictus stayed ahead of the curve with the ability to adjust bids based on live market trends or tailoring strategies to mirror successful competitors. 

“The precision targeting and optimization that XMP brought to our SDK ad network campaigns, with Mintegral as a representative example, have been pivotal,” states the Growth Team Lead of Alictus. “With XMP, we’ve drastically decreased our reliance on broad-stroke strategies and deepened our understanding of the user journey. This platform has allowed us to adjust our approach in real-time, which is crucial in an industry that constantly adapts. The uplift in our campaigns’ performance metrics directly correlates with a smarter allocation of our budget — ROAS is up, and wastage is down.”

Bulk Campaigns, Maximized Impact

Alictus’ creative edge lies in XMP’s ability to release campaigns in bulk across platforms, which meant the marketing team could introduce many new creatives on multiple platforms at the same time and maximize their impact through swift testing and iteration.

“XMP’s ability to assimilate with our creative process has been transformative,” said Yiğitcan Tunçer, Alictus’s Director of Art. “Integrating with multiple formats and platforms allowed us to push boundaries and test new creative strategies efficiently. It’s thrilling to see our creatives come to life through data-backed decisions, reaching audiences at scale and with impact.”

Through their partnership with XMP, Alictus has slashed manual workload by a staggering 80%. With XMP, Alictus isn’t just playing the game — they’re changing how it’s played.
