Glu Mobile, a leading publisher of mobile games, says it’ll deliver 30 titles on BlackBerry App World. It’s a new online destination for consumers to find applications designed for BlackBerry smartphones from Research In Motion (RIM).
BlackBerry App World launched in the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom on April 1, and provides BlackBerry smartphone users with easy access to games, social networking, and productivity applications on-the-go.
Today, many players from the entertainment and mobile markets are joining hands to offer their mobile games to consumers. Now you can have baffling brain teasers to games based on Hollywood blockbusters right under your thumb. Some of these mobile games are listed under the My Techbox Online Market Intelligence Series.
While iPhone and some Nokia devices are already being used actively by mobile gamers, of late even Android has attracted attention of game vendors. Gameloft has announced a line-up of 20 games for Android-powered devices such as the T-mobile G1. Through Android Market, an open marketplace, Gameloft is offering the games with better graphics and gameplay capabilities. The offerings range from Derek Jeter Pro Baseball 2009 to Oregon Trail and CSI:Miami.
Now, BlackBerry phones, supported by BlackBerry App World, also want to participate aggressively in the gaming arena.
