Earlier this year we mentioned that the second Android Gaming Challenge was on the way. A lot of people have been waiting for this to start and now the wait is almost over. We here at DroidGamers are happy to announce the official AGC#2 sign-up and starting date as well as give you a peek into the prizes.
As we mentioned yesterday, PopCap Games is finally releasing a couple of titles on Android. While Plants vs Zombies is slated for 'later this month', Chuzzle was set to launch today and indeed it has. It will be available exclusively on the Amazon App Store until May 30th. After that it will be available on the Android Market.
Gameloft has once again revised their DRM policy with a change to the ability to re-download purchased games once you get a new Android device. Previously, unless you went through customer service, you wouldn't be able to download purchased games onto your new Android device. That has changed.
So it seems as though PopCap Games has finally decided to release Plants vs Zombies and Chuzzle onto the Android platform. While we have been hearing that this would be coming soon for quite some time now, PopCap Games has released actual launch details. These two games may actually get released!
If you find yourself this weekend with a decent amount of free times and feel the need to slaughter a gratuitous amount of aliens, The Evil Company has you covered. Their first game for the Android platform just came out called Alien Overkill and like the title says, there are a lot of aliens to kill.
If the name of their new studios, Puppy Punch, doesn't get you giggling even a little bit then perhaps the title of their first game that is entering closed beta testing will do the trick. Called 'A Game with Balls' or AGWB for short, this will be their first release and will land on multiple platforms including Android.
T-Mobile is pushing the whole mobile gaming thing, especially now that they have the LG G2X and G-Slate under their belts. Both of these devices come with nVidia's Tegra 2 dual-core chip which makes for some great gaming. Now you have a chance to win an LG G2X as well as a trip to E3 and $2500 in spending money. But wait there's more!
There has been a rumor going around lately that Polarbit has been working on a kart racing game, similar to Mario Kart, but with more of a focus on the actual combat and defense areas. We have teamed up with our friends over at Pockett Videogames to bring forth exclusive screenshots and video of this upcoming game, Cracking Sands.
Awhile back we mentioned an RPG that was being developer by Mika Mobile called Battleheart. Featuring art that is a bit out of the norm when it comes to RPG titles (usually it is either pixel art or 3D) and a rather deep storyline, it has been a hit since it's recent release on iOS. Now it's available for Android.
According to a post on the official Order & Chaos forums, Gameloft is already hard at work coming out with the first patch with more content and bug fixes. So why are we reporting on this since the Android version isn't available yet? To keep you up to speed for when it does come out which should be fairly soon!
