Gaming arrives on Kindle

Publish date:

Though it's never likely to emerge as a games platform to rival the likes of iPad or the DS, Amazon has released two games that are compatible with its Kindle ereader device.

Shuffled Row and Every Word are both available to download for free right now. Both, unsurprisingly, are word puzzlers.

It will be interesting to see how far Amazon takes the device in the sector. It wouldn't be a surprise to see the likes of crossword and sudoku titles making an appearance, but could the retailer's aspirations stretch even further?

Note, though, that according to Engadget the games only appear to be compatible with the second generation and DX variants of the Kindle and not the Kindle 1.
