More news for developers today as PapayaMobile has launched a new toolkit that will allow anyone who makes HTML5/Flash games to port them over into a fully featured Android game. This is all done without having to deal with any new coding languages.
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.
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.
Kongregate’s Arcade application that allows you to play over 400+ flash games from the mega gaming site on your Android device has just updated their app to include support for Honeycomb. This means that you XOOM owners will be able to play all those flash games on your nice 10.1″ screens once you receive you Flash update.
We reported on a nifty little app that helps you play online Flash games a little over a week ago. Essentially it would allow you to load any Flash game onto your Android phone from your SD Card, direct URL or the developers 2D Tsunami database and play it like it was actually made for your Android device with much better controls.
Having Flash support in Android is great, especially if you enjoy playing Flash games online. While there is an ever growing selection of Flash games packaged and put onto the Android Market which are specifically re-designed for mobile playing, a lot of the good Flash games are still browser-based and do not have controls for mobile gaming.
The other week Kongregate, the internet’s biggest community Flash gaming site, released their much awaited Arcade app for Android onto the market, only to have it pulled off within hours by Google. The reason? It was in violation of the Android Market Developer Distribution Agreement because the app itself was distributing other apps.
For all of you who have been waiting for Shift to come out of beta and become available on the Android Market, especially after not getting into the limited closed beta, your wait is over. You can now head over to the Android Market and pick up Shift by Armor Games for your Android phone and start playing this great game.
Our friends over at Kongregate, one of the biggest sites for playing high quality Flash games, released an app the other day called the Kongregate Arcade App. This was to give all us Android gamers access to over 300+ Flash games to play on our Android devices. Unfortunately, a few hours later it was pulled off the Android Market.
