Motorola Mobility’s venture capital arm has announced its second investment in a week, putting money into a Redwood City, Calif.-based developer of games for mobile devices and social networks.

Motorola Mobility Ventures did not disclose the size of its equity investment in Moblyng, but it typically invests $3 million to $5 million. Other investors in Moblyng’s latest round of funding were Mohr Davidow Ventures and Deep Fork Capital, both investment firms based in Menlo Park, Calif.

Moblyng makes HTML5-based games for platforms such as Android, Facebook and Apple’s iOS, Motorola Mobility Ventures said, adding that the company’s games have racked up more than 9 million downloads. Its titles include m:Racing and Dungeon Quest.

A week ago, Motorola Mobility Ventures announced it had invested in Beverly Hills, Calif.-based Catch Media, which makes a software platform that allows users to access digital content from different devices. The Catch Media funding was the first investment Motorola Mobility’s venture arm made since Motorola Mobility split off from Motorola Inc. in January.
