Over the last couple of days OpenFeint has been unleashing a second wave of games onto Android, but I’ve got to admit that I have no clue which ones are awesome or not. With most of them paid apps, asking readers seemed like a better idea than forking out cash and refunding as we all know how much developers hate that refund policy. So of the new games out this week (not Fruit Ninja or MiniSquadron), which games caught your eye?
OpenFeint pushed an additional 12 games to the Android Market today just weeks after their first wave which saw titles like Fruit Ninja and MiniSquadron top the paid app charts within 72 hours. Android users are proving that they aren’t “cheap” but really just want quality titles to choose from in order to fork over that hard earned cash. You can keep setting aside money though, as OpenFeint is planning on releasing even more batches of titles throughout the rest of 2010. Times are good in Android people.
The best way to check out their latest releases is by using the Feint Game Spotlight app.

Another programming note I know…
So we’re still in San Francisco hanging out with OpenFeint and will have a solid amount of time to hang out with the team today to pick their brain on some of their new projects. Posting may be a little sporadic, but don’t worry, we’re getting the goods for you. Oh, we’ll also be back to normal tomorrow. Will you live?
Any questions you’d like us to ask?
Just a little programming note to start what is guaranteed to be the wildest day in recent memory…
We’re down in San Francisco for the next 2 days hanging out with the OpenFeint team! As you all know, OpenFeint unleashed a wave of their amazing games onto the Android platform last week, but this week they wanted to bring us down to meet everyone and show us what they’ve got in store for the future. How awesome is that?
The future of gaming for Android has never looked brighter and OpenFeint is at the forefront. We’ll be sure to have updates for you throughout the next couple of days, so stay tuned!
Your Android gaming needs are finally becoming fulfilled with the announcement today from gaming powerhouse OpenFeint that 20 games will be released onto Android over the next month and as many as 10 today. Most are actually available right now in the market including Fruit Ninja, MiniSquadron and Flick Kick Field Goal which we’ve listed for you below.
OpenFeint also announced the Feint Spotlight App allowing you to stay up-to-date on the most recent gaming releases from them. The Feint Spotlight App acts sort of like a mini-gaming market bringing you community, games and even prizes. OpenFeint and their 3,000 titles, hundreds of developers and millions of users are now a part of Android, people. We knew this day was coming, but damn is it still exciting.
And just wait, cross-platform challenges are coming, meaning i*hone vs. Android battle royales. Win.
