We got to sit down with a few developers from Australia and even though they are mostly iOS developers, they are planning to bring their games to Android as well. One such developer is Tin Man Games which produces the series called Gamebook Adventures. These are a ‘choose your own adventure’ type of game.

I’ve always been a fan of the Risk game across all of the different versions that are available to play, even the old school board game version. It seems some developers want to bring Risk to real-life, or close to it anyways. Based off a check-in system, you’ll be able to take over other cities you are near or at if you have a large enough army.
So far when it comes to Hockey games on Android, there are a few good ones out there including Hockey Nations 2010 from Distinctive Developments. Well now that it is 2011, it is time for the new version to be released and while the 2010 edition was complete, it was missing one thing that all Hockey games seem to be missing.
Mojang, developers of the extremely popular PC game Minecraft which is also now heading to Android, have talked about their new upcoming game called Scrolls. While Scrolls is a completely different type of game from Minecraft, developers have already stated that the game will be for PC and a version for mobile as well.
Bigpoint, one of the more major browser-based gaming companies out right now, can see the promise in mobile gaming and Android as well. They are planning to bring as many of their titles to Android in the near future which is great if you’ve ever played a Bigpoint game. All of their games are MMOs and generally high quality 3D graphics.
EA has a rather popular RPG game on Facebook called Dragon Age: Legends and it will be making the jump to mobile, including Android, in the near future. This is an entirely 2D-based RPG game for all you RPG fans out there to play. As with any RPG game, you’ll be able to do quests, level up, get gear and all that good stuff.
OpenFeint and The9 have formed a little partnership to help indie developers in bringing their games to Android from other platforms. We all know OpenFeint have been helping the indie scene for quite some time now and The9 is a Chinese game publisher that happens to have a $100 million dollar fund set up.
