Game on with Google, Gameloft and Glu

Android developers don't have to start with the letter G - but it helps

We've been a little quiet on the Android front over the last few months. There hasn't been too much news regarding games until now.

Following the unveiling of the G1, developers are creeping out of the woodwork and setting their stalls. First up is Gameloft that have announced at least 10 games for the first quarter of 2009 with undoubtedly more to follow. No details of which games will be first but I think you can expect something from their Midnight series and probably a football game.

Glu have also thrown their hat in the ring with an Android Market exclusive game - Bonsai Blast (main picture). It may be an exclusive game with 20 levels of ball matching madness but it looks a lot like Zuma which was one of their previous titles anyway.

Finally, Gamco Namco has confirmed that Pac Man will be available on the Android Market in October. If you're quick you will be able to enjoy this for free (normal price $9.99).

It's been a busy year for mobiles and developers. N-gage finally came good with a slow and steady start. Apple have since captured everybody's imagination and allowed anybody to sell their applications via the App Store. Now Google will finish off 2008 with the launch of the fairly open source Android. Just as gaming was starting to achieve it's expectations, we have now 3 big platforms come on the scene with developers eager to sell their wares across all three. Lets just hope the top developers can keep to their previous high standards for the millions of java gamers out there.
