In an announcement timed for Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona, Spain, iPhone game publisher Gameloft revealed that Apple is now its biggest customer, thanks to the success of their iPhone and iPod touch games.

Gameloft’s entire product catalog includes close to 300 entries, and it offers games in more than 80 countries, distributing games through telecom operators, phone and console manufacturers and media partners. Gameloft announced that they have sold more than 200 million games since launching their first title in 2003.

Apple became Gameloft’s biggest client with the launch of the App Store last summer, however. The App Store currently lists close to 30 Gameloft-published titles, with “a significant number” of new games planned for release in 2009.

Gameloft’s range of iPhone games includes Uno, Asphalt 4: Elite Racing; Real Football 2009; Guitar Rock Tour; Hero of Sparta; and Midnight Pool.
