Hampshire, UK-based studio FinBlade has jumped on the Android bandwagon, releasing three of its iPhone titles – WordSearch, Movie Quiz and Tennis Slam – on the T-Mobile G1 via Handango.
“While there has been a stampede to support the iPhone, our approach has been to target all capable smart phones,” said John Chasey, president of FinBlade.
“Our Android launch is the next step of that strategy, which ensures our development spend is maximised across all viable channels. Having completed titles live in the market is the best advert to potential clients of our capability to deliver on these high-end devices, while still supporting the standard set of J2ME and BREW devices when required. you’ll see more of our output swing towards commissioned titles from publishers in the forthcoming months.”
Fergus McNeill, CEO of FinBlade added: “By using the Bedrock technology from Metismo we have been able to focus our resources on the content of the games and let the middleware take care of the OS issues. Releasing so soon after the launch of the device, combined with great user and critical reviews for our titles have demonstrated the success of this policy.”
