Run Run Hamster, Chute Academy and Tag Attack for the Kindle Fire and Nook Tablet


We've been working with DifferenceGames over the last couple of weeks to get three of our classic titles out on the Amazon and Barnes&Noble app-stores for their tablet devices. If you want to give them a spin, they can be yours for the symbolic price of 99¢ each. Here's the direct links to each of them:

Chute Academy: Kindle Fire - NOOK Tablet
Run Run Hamster: Kindle Fire - NOOK Tablet
Tag Attack: Kindle Fire - NOOK Tablet

We've already released these games last year to the Playbook, so we have some tablet porting experience. And to make things even better, DifferenceGames provided us with a nice wrapper API that allowed us to be lazy and skip the Nook and Kindle technical requirements and dive straight in to the actual game conversion. Even so, it was a bit tricky because of the different aspect ratio of the tablets vs the original 4:3 format of our games, also mouse control to touch control conversion needed some workarounds here and there. 

Sales are doing pretty nice. Maybe not nice enough to support 100% tablet developments, we still need the sponsorships, but it looks to be worth at least the time invested in "porting" the games.
