All the way back in July we started hearing about OpenFeint and their suite of iOS games that they had hoped to bring over to Android to legitimize gaming on the platform and I’d say they’ve succeeded if you look at these new numbers. Today, after announcing another 14 “chart-topping” games, the total for Feint logo’d titles is up to 315 which is an astounding number, especially when you think that they had just 20 back in September.
Included in this new wave are hits like Guerilla Bob, Can Knockdown 2, Ninja Rush Deluxe and Tank Hero; all of which can be found through the Feint Spotlight app or the Android Market. Not bad right? Now, if only we could get them to update the Feint app to include many of the iOS features that make gaming that much more entertaining.
Full list of games after the break.
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.

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.

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.”
