Androids Kongregate

In rapid succession, Kongregate announced the debut of the Android App in the Android Market. Woo hoo, say gamers. Over 300 free Flash games now available on Android. And then, later that same day, it gets pulled by Google. Why? No one knows.

The idea of moving Flash games over to a mobile platform does sound interesting, offering new users and potentially some paths to revenue for the developers. Advertising revenue? Could be. Perhaps even in-app purchasing, when Google gets around to that some day. Since Flash is not welcome in Apple  territory, Android would seem like the perfect place for Flash games to find a home.

Alas, it's not happening. At least not right away. Maybe we'll find out more soon, or maybe the app will reappear.
