Google has flipped the switch to the "On" position for a neat tool for Android developers to use. When signed into you Android Market account, you will be treated to a new link under each app/game you have uploaded to the Android Market labeled as "Statistics". This will give you a break down of all sort of helpful information.
You may or may not have heard about Nexon before although we are thinking you have in some fashion. They have developed a lot of hugely popular browser-based games such as Kartrider Rush and Maple Story. Nexon was also the first company to create the Freemium business model and integrate it into their games.
About a week and a half ago, just before the start of GDC 2011, we posted about a game called Desert Winds by Southend Interactive which was being demoed on the upcoming Qualcomm chipset featuring the new Adreno 220 GPU. This game looks like a mesh between Prince of Persia and Tomb Raider with awesome graphics.
While we naturally report on all things relating to Android games and gaming, we did get to meet up with some other companies such as 2KGames and Capcom to check out their newest releases (plus we did say we would report on other stuff from GDC). So taking a break from Android for one post, here are some great games we checked out.
So you've been wanting a good, detailed Civilization clone for awhile now but really, there isn't any available on the market that can truly stand up against the PC game. Well there is the FreeCiv movement which is creating a free version of the game but not for Android. One developer has decided to change that.
SkyVue Pictures has been slowly releasing their Battle Bears series of games onto the Android Market over the last little while including add-on packs for them, all of which are fun games. Battle Bears -1 is especially fun as a OTS (Over-the-shoulder) shooter game featuring some crazy 3D graphics and bears who are really angry.
A few days ago we reported on the next Angry Birds Seasons update that will be pushed into the game. This was to be themed around St. Patrick's Day and all the luck of the Irish including pots of gold to help boost your score. Well the wait is over and the St. Patty's Day update is not live on the Android Market for all to enjoy!
Our friends over at Hyperbees have decided to release the full version of their awesome tunnel racing game, SpeedX, for free for everyone to enjoy. While this game isn't new, it is one of the best tunnel racing games out and it does have features that you won't find in any other game on the market which we will mention after the jump.
Tegra Zone, which is nVidia's marketplace to buy/download Tegra 2 optimized games for your Android devices that have a Tegra 2 inside them, seems to be the source of an interesting bit of information. While we had planned to post this yesterday, we were waiting to find out some other information regarding this first.
HandyGames have been really pushing their Android line-up of games lately with a release or update at least once a month. March seems to be no exception to the rule as they have just released Cyberlords onto the Android Market. This is a top-down isometric shoot-em-up games mixed in with RPG elements at the same time.
