G5 Entertainment announced this morning that it is preparing to initially release 12 games on the Amazon Appstore starting 15th November, when the “Amazon Kindle Fire” starts to go on sale in the USA.
Amazon’s Kindle Fire is said to include support for several thousand of the most popular Android apps when it launches November 15, including games from the likes of Zynga, EA, Gameloft, PopCap, Rovio and now also G5 Entertainment. Amazon’s USD 199 tablet runs on a modified version of the Android OS that only supports apps offered through the company’s Amazon Android Marketplace, which currently lists over 3,600 games among nearly 20,000 total apps. Current game offerings on that Marketplace include popular titles such as Angry Birds, Plants vs. Zombies, Peggle, Cut the Rope, Doodle Jump, Fruit Ninja, Age of Zombies, Pac-Man, Drift Mania and Jenga. Amazon says it tests all apps in the App Marketplace for compatibility with the Fire, and Fire users will be able to purchase games and apps directly using Amazon’s 1-click technology. Amazon will also continue to offer one paid app as a free offer each day, the company said.
