It’s arrived!  The full version of Angry Birds for Android is here!  I’m not sure why, but they haven’t released it in the Android Market yet, they said that’s coming in the next few days.  For now you’ll need to download it from the Getjar website, they tell you.  This game is so popular however it’s taken down almost any site hosting the file from it getting flooded with hits.   So why not try to add one more to that list?

If you want to download the full version of Angry Birds, get it here!  Angry Birds Download

Oh did we mention this comes in at the awesome price of free?!

Enjoy!

As promised, OpenFeint has released another handful of games for Android after their first batch including Fruit Ninja and Mini Squadron saw them reach the top of the paid games charts within 72 hours.

So on the coat tails of releasing Fruit Ninja today, the online, cross-platform, mobile gaming community, Open Feint, has gone and brought their whole system over to Android.

What does this mean for you?  Tons and TONS of new, GREAT games for the Android are here, and will be flooding into the system over the next few months.

Again, this is the same group that is responsible for launching Fruit Ninja today, so expect many more quality games like that to come your way soon.  And by soon we mean there’s already 4 or 5 in the market, up to 10 will be added by the end of the day, and at least 20 more by the end of the month.  To top it off, you can win REAL prizes from playing these games, and soon to be able to play against other platforms, so you can play your buddy on his iPhone, and kick his butt from your Droid!  Awesome!

Can we say THANK YOU!? Finally the Android platform is getting the recognition it deserves being the number one selling platform, and will continue to enjoy all these quality developers and publishers come to the greener grass of the mobile arena.

To make this simple for all of you, I suggest downloading the Feint Spotlight App.  It’s basically a mini-market for games as well as a community hub for OpenFeint.  From there you’ll be able to see any of the hottest games, added on a daily basis!

Major Wireless Carriers and OpenFeint Partner To Unleash First Wave of Hit Games on Android

Cross Platform Social Gaming Network to Offer Access to Featured Promotion to Tens of Millions of Android Subscribers

Burlingame, CA – September 15, 2010 – OpenFeint, the leading cross platform social gaming network with 37 million mobile players, is launching 20 games for Android in the next month starting today with top 10 iOS hits including dot (ustwo), Fruit Ninja (Halfbrick Studios), MiniSquadron (Supermono), Super Slyder (Sandlot Games), The Moron Test (DistinctDev, Inc.), and Tic Tac Toe (Posimotion). These games will be offered to major wireless carriers as part of a partnership where OpenFeint will regularly bring high quality games to Android as candidates for featuring. The company also announced the release of its Feint Spotlight app, where Android gamers will be able to discover new games, connect to the community, and win prizes. With over 200,000 daily activations, the Android user base is growing rapidly and will eclipse tens of millions of additional users in 2010.

OpenFeint’s cross platform social gaming network has grown rapidly since being introduced just over 18 months ago, recently surpassing 37 million mobile players and 3,000 games. Game developers gain access to OpenFeint’s leading set of online gaming services and cross promotional tools by implementing the company’s free, open source SDK.

“Android users deserve great games but haven’t had access to enough of them. That changes today,” said Jason Citron, CEO of Aurora Feint, makers of OpenFeint. “Hundreds of thousands of people activate Android phones every day, and there is a clear need for high quality games in the marketplace. The major wireless carriers are partnering with us to select the best games from iOS – like Fruit Ninja – to bring to Android.”

All games utilize the newly cross platform OpenFeint mobile social gaming network and include features like leaderboards, achievements, and friending. iOS and Android gamers can now compete against each other in the games that they love to play. With a cross platform gaming network, gamers are no longer limited to playing games with friends who only use the same smartphone OS.

OpenFeint also announced that it will aggressively market these games in its newly introduced Feint Spotlight app for Android. With new titles being added to the OpenFeint network every day, gamers can use the app to discover the hottest new games and win prizes in future giveaways.

“Android is on track to become an incredible force as one of the largest mobile platforms in the world. Developers will need to unlock this gigantic market to maximize revenue potential for their mobile games. With the help of our wireless carrier partners, we’ve created multiple viral and editorial channels to help our developers drive revenue,” said Peter Relan, Chairman of Aurora Feint.

Review: Gameloft Series of Games

Posted: August 25, 2010 in Apps
Tags: ,

It’s no secret there is a grey cloud lingering over the world of gaming on Android.  Tonight I ran across a few articles promoting a company that was now offering their games on a try before you buy basis. That company is GameLoft.  These guys have games on just about every device and platform imaginable if you check out their website.

We’ll obviously be focusing on the Android games here, but really any device, console, PC…you can find these guys leaving their mark somewhere.

So how come these games aren’t at the top of App Brain?  Or have 100,000+ downloads in the Android Market.  Well simple really.  They consciously decided that they weren’t going to distribute games in the market.  I don’t have any inside information on this, but I’m willing to bet since they sell across so many platforms this makes it easy to distribute all their content through their own website.

So now to the games!
