While id Software may not have made many friends last year when they had all the Doom, Quake and Wolfenstein ports yanked off the Android market through a DMCA notice to Google, they do have the possibility now of making it up to the Android community whether that is their motive or not. Word has it that they are considering releasing their newest game, Rage, onto the Android platform.
It really was only a matter of time, especially after the news of Google investing in Zynga, the makers of Farmville who are expected to be releasing it for Android at some point in the near future, that another Facebook game company would release their title onto the Android market. Whom do I speak of? Why Happy Island is who, developed by Sibblingz.
Backflip Studios has been a major iOS developer for some time now with some extremely popular games. In fact one of them is already on the Android market called Paper Toss. This is just like Toss It! so if you’ve played one then you’ve played both although I believe they developed the game first. However due to the great response they have had, they will be porting over their other popular games!

As each round end the competition gets tougher and much more fierce. This round was no exception to that rule as Round 3 has some very close scores from everyone. For this round Farm Frenzy AGC Edition was played and this one required time, strategy and patience along with quick fingers. The results are in and it seems we will be having a sudden death round for 2 players!
In a surprising move by Google Ventures (no not really surprising), it is being reported that they have now invested in ngmoco. If you do not know what ngmoco is they are a publisher of some very popular iPhone games including We Farm which is ranked number 2 for the iPad right now on the App Store. What exactly does this mean for Android?
Yes the title makes you go “what?!” but Engadget is reporting that Sony Ericsson is working on an Android 3.0 gaming device which, according to the Engadget mock-up, looks a lot like a PSP with phone capabilities. With a slider featuring gaming controls in the phone, this looks to be exactly what the gaming sector of Android needs and looks like every mobile gamers dream.
Amtalee, Developed by Frosteam Software, follows in the footsteps of Nintaii or Cubicman 3D block puzzle games where you have to move/rotate your block to make it through the stage to the exit before being able to move on. While keeping true to the style of gameplay found in these types of games, Amtalee offers a few extra options to help you along the way.
For round 2 of the Android Gaming Challenge the game used was Prism3D AGC Edition which was a modified version of the game. In this version the level was endless and dynamically generated presenting both skill challenge as well as endurance challenge. With the end of the round now, the scores have been amazing with one person breaking 1 million points!
