This week saw the launch of a PlayStation 2 emulator on Android, which is great news for PS2 gamers.  Nintendo emulators have been available for some time, and this release broadens gaming options overall.

There were also big announcements from platformers like IGN, which detailed plans for Android expansion.  Here’s what’s going on with Android games.

Emulators and just plain fun

PSX4Droid brings classic PlayStation games to your Android, such as Earthworm and Final Fantasy. The emulator costs $5.99 and can save games.  Other game options include scaling modes and button overlays, as well as “Wii-mote” support.

The Moron Test has been updated with a new “Food Fight” section.  That’s 45 more questions for you to prove your intelligence.  Check out new and returning characters, and test your skills on new kinds of problems to solve. The full version is 99 cents.

An update to Super Tumble brings new puzzles to solve.  Use gears, floats and other basic principles of physics to clear wooden blocks from the board.  A great brain teaser, this $2.99 series is fun for kids and adults.

Bringing another object-guiding accelerometer game to Android is Radio Ball 3D.  Navigate your ball of uranium down a tunnel, avoiding objects and people.  Pick up power-boosters for extra lives, jump ramps or roll up the side of the tunnel’s curved walls.  Try it for about $1.50.

Platform news

GameStop is spreading its web reach with the acquisition of Kongregate, the online Flash game site.  This spreads GameStop’s reach to mobile devices, as Kongregate has dedicated a good amount of resources towards the Android platform.  Seeing Android support from multiple positions of the gaming industry keeps us hopeful.

Integrat and SkillPod Media have teamed up to launch Gazuma, a new gaming platform. Integrat, a South African mobile aggregator, displays the global support for Android.  This also brings global distribution opportunities for game creators and publishers, allowing them to move beyond Asia and Europe.
