NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Glu Mobile (GLUU) - Get Report stock is up by 5.03% to $3.76 in mid-morning trading on Thursday, after the company launched the "Kendall & Kylie" game.

The game developer announced that it launched the "Kendall & Kylie" game on Apple's (AAPL) AppStore and Alphabet's (GOOGL) Google Play, the company said in a statement on Thursday. The game features the voices and likenesses of Kendall and Kylie Jenner, who are reality TV stars.

The smartphone application is free and offers users the option to make in-application purchases.
