Just two days ago we announced that Unreal Engine is now supporting Flash 11 officially. While this already is some great news, CryTek has now come out to make sure that if you aren’t excited over that then perhaps you will be once you hear that they are investigating supporting Flash with CryEngine 3 as well.
Well here is some news that could very well be of great interest to use Android users who also enjoy playing games. Adobe and Epic have teamed up and announced that the Unreal Engine 3 will now support the new Flash 11 from Adobe. Could we see Unreal Flash games on Android soon?
Just to round off Adobe’s recent update to Flash which is providing Honeycomb support and performance improvements for non-Honeycomb Android devices, Adobe Air just had its update released onto the Android Market this morning as well. Included in this update is Honeycomb support, so all your XOOM owners should be happy now.
All you XOOM owners have been looking forward to this day, probably since you got your tablets. Well the wait is now over and you’ll be able to enjoy Flash on your snazzy dual-core XOOM tablets and play flash games online or through the Kongregate Arcade App which now supports Honeycomb as well! There are other features as well though.
A new set of APIs will be available very soon from Adobe, Codenamed: “Molehill” for developers to use in their Flash game development. These are low-level, GPU accelerated 3D APIs which will allow developers to make much more detailed and faster rendering 3D graphics for the upcoming Flash Player update. Officially this is awesome news.
Adobe Max 2010 is currently underway and some of the announcements that came out of today already have been some major goodies and could mean a lot when it comes to gaming on your Android phone. While detailed information is still currently being released here are some things you might want to drool over while you wait.
We are seeing a lot more quality games being released onto the Android Market on an almost daily basis now. Some built normally, while others are 3D and more still using AIR. Alchemist II is one of those built using AIR that is a high quality puzzle game with an adaptive AI that will adjust to how you play the game. Ready to use that brain of yours?
So you’re rocking the Flash player on your Android phone and you’ve got Adobe AIR installed as well, but what now? There isn’t a whole lot of selection just yet regarding games. Well, luckily for you, we here at DroidGamers spend way too much time sifting through the games section of the Android Market and testing out games so we can recommend (or not recommend) them to you.
As Adobe had previously announced, AIR is now available on the Android Market. AIR will allow developers to run AS3, ActionScript 3 in other words, natively on Android devices. Between this and Flash 10.1 support Flash gaming on your Android device has now been solidified. Developers can now port their flash games over and put them on the market.
Although the iPhone recently announced it will more then likely be supporting Flash soon (surprise surprise), Kongregate has long supported gaming on mobile phones since the idea of Flash on Android came to light and was one of the first sites to make their games playable on Android devices. Well now developers have a chance to win part of almost $30,000 in prizes!
