It has been quite a week in the social gaming network sector of mobile gaming so far. First we had OpenFeint getting purchased by GREE for a cool $104 million. Next, a few days later, DeNA announces a partnership with NTT DoCoMo. Now it is Scoreloop’s turn today as they announce a new partnership with CSL Limited.
Yesterday, OpenFeint revealed a partnership with The9 which is aimed at helping indie iOS game developers with porting their games to Android and the costs associated with that. Today, Scoreloop just announced that they are as well trying to give the iOS game developers a bit of a push in bringing their games to Android.
One of the two main cross-platform social gaming platforms has received a pretty big update. After listening to developers and user feedback, Scoreloop has released version 2.0 of their SDK. Developers can now add even more features to their games and users have a lot more options available to play around with.
The hits keep on rolling it seems as every day lately you find an iOS developer has brought their game over to Android as well. This time it is yet another extremely popular iOS game called Hungry Shark by developer Future Games of London or FGOL for short. This is a great game where you are a shark and your job is to eat…everything…alive.
While we all wait for Google to officially institute PayPal as a payment solution for purchasing applications and games off the Android market Scoreloop has decided to bring it to developers and gamers now with the inclusion of PayPal. Now developers who use Scoreloop with their games can now use PayPal to offer in-game purchases to gamers.
It has been a very long journey for these remaining six competitors which has finally come to an end as this Finals round is now over. Everyone fought to the bitter end not only in this game but all of the games since Day 1. Now it is time to announce who won and is crowned Champion and the runner-ups! All of them deserve a huge congrats though.
This is it, this is the last round of the first ever (but certainly not the last) Android Gaming Challenge where we will name one person as Champion, two people will walk away with a new Android device and all six remaining people will win a boat load of other goodies! All six remaining competitors have fought long and hard to get to this round!
The semi-final round for the first Android Gaming Challenge has just ended and it certainly wasn’t an easy game to play. A special golf course was designed for tournament players in the Mini Golf’oid game and the scores were as impressive as ever. However the ladder is not complete as there will be yet another sudden death tie-breaker between two players.
The first ever Android Gaming Challenge is nearing it’s end. Today marks the beginning of the semi-finals and after that the finals where 1 person will be named Champion. Six players have managed to beat out the original 400+ entries into the tournament playing various games testing different aspects of gaming such as reflexes, endurance and strategy!
As you may or may not have know we needed to have a sudden death round between two players for the last spot in the semi-finals for the Android Gaming Challenge. It was a very close battle with neither player giving up at any point. In fact it was so close that the only difference in points is just under 700 and it was like that the entire round.
