April 1, 2011 - Written By Anthony Gordano

OpenFeint is definitely the “Game Center” of Android.  Google needs to snatch them up before they become too big to purchase! As you can see in the chart above, 215 connected apps in 5 months is nothing to laugh at. Not only does a game with OpenFeint have achievements and a friends list, but you can also compare your scores to your iOS friends that you haven’t convinced to switch to Android yet! While their biggest games are Fruit Ninja and Meganoid, they have plenty of great games! I personally recommend you all try Speedx, I’ve been playing it a lot on my XOOM with classic 3D Glasses! If you want to challenge my score in Speedx leave your OpenFeint name in the comments. Check out the press release below;


OpenFeint Brings 14 Chart-Topping Mobile Game Titles to Google’s Android Platform
Cross-platform mobile social games network now powering 315 mobile games

April 1, 2011- Burlingame Calif. – OpenFeint has been making key strategic partnerships this year to bring quality games to Android. First, the company announced that it would bring their cross-platform social gaming network to AT&T’s Android devices. Next, the network partnered with The9 and the $100 million Fund9 to help iOS developers port their games to Android. Today, OpenFeint is revealing the latest 14 hit games it has brought to Android.

OpenFeint is also releasing some of their game growth statistics. Since November, OpenFeint has added 215 mobile gaming titles to the Android ecosystem, totaling in 315 games. That’s over a 200 percent increase in five months.

“At the end of the day, I should be able to destroy my brother’s high score in Fruit Ninja, whether I’m on my iPad or Droid X,” says OpenFeint’s CEO, Jason Citron. “Gamers and developers agree and want to use OpenFeint for this reason.”

OpenFeint attributes the significant surge in Android titles to more developers discovering the platform and the benefits of going cross-platform.

“At first, indie game developers chose iOS because it was the easiest way to distribute their games,” says OpenFeint’s VP of Marketing, Eros Resmini. “As Google has improved the Android Marketplace and we’ve introduced game discovery and porting opportunities with AT&T and The9, iOS developers are more and more interested in Android.”

New OpenFeint titles out on Android in March include:
· Can Knockdown: 2 Infinite Dreams
· Doodle Bowling: GameResort
· Grave Defense Silver Free: Art of Bytes
· Guerrilla Bob: Angry Mob Games
