Mobile game Apps - the Best Platform for the Mobile Gamer
Of all the current competing mobile platforms, the Iphone is arguably currently at the forefront of that platform, certainly with regards to the number of game apps it has available, however many people will point out that the Android has in a short period of time nearly doubled the amount of games it has available on the market.
And have shown promising and remarkable growth over just the latter half of this year, snagging a few prominent app developers, most notably Rock Star games.
Gameloft continues to be the most notable and loyal contributor to the Android platform delivering “Assassin’s Creed: Altair’s Chroincles,” and the first person shooter NOVA.
Despite Gameloft’s statement the previous fall that it was pulling back on its contributions to the Android due mostly to the pandemonium that has engulfed the Android market, it has continued to provide for Android holding a near monopoly on the market and instead has opted to sell its apps from its own website.
While the Android is looking to be promising in the future, it’s still difficult to make a case for the Android when it’s leading competitor the Iphone has titles like the Sims, Mass Effect and numerous other titles to lean on.
But Android’s explosive growth the last half of the year will likely garner it some more third part support.
Rumour has it the Capcom has already offered to develop some software for the Android which could really give it some leverage and square it with the Iphone market.
Other publishers such as the publisher of the game “plants vs. Zombies” and Bejeweled as well as many other popular mobile game apps have tentatively expressed their interesting in adapting those games for the Android but have not confirmed any affirmative release dates.
