Only a couple of weeks ago, at the most, we saw OpenFeint release a flurry of games onto the Android Market as well as their OpenFeint Spotlight App. Promising up to 20 games to be released within a months time their first wave of games came out strong with titles like Fruit Ninja and MiniSquadron and today the second wave begins.
The first wave was so successful we saw Fruit Ninja jump to number 1 in paid games in less then 24 hours with MiniSquadron close behind in the Top 5. Since then the dust has settled and Fruit Ninja has dropped to number 2 with Robo Defense climbing back up to number 1. It was a short defeat but a defeat nonetheless for a game who has sat there since time began.
This second wave should prove to be pretty successful as well with it sporting titles like Cestos 2: Party Time (now available on the market) which we released a sneak peak of yesterday. Other titles to look out for include Babo Crash Deluxe, SpeedX 3D, Flick Kick Rugby, Skyforce and Kamikaze Race.
Full list of games for wave 2:
- Super KO Boxing 2 by Glu Mobile
- Flick Kick Rugby by PikPok
- Touch Racing Nitro by Bravo Game Studios
- Penalty World Challenge 2010 by Bravo Game Studios
