Here is a little tidbit of interesting albeit disappointing news. Seems as though Google has mysteriously pulled the recently launched Kongregate Arcade from the Android Market. According to an email sent to JoyStiq, Kongregate is working with Google to get the situation sorted out as soon as possible:
As reported earlier today, the Kongregate Arcade app was launched on the Android Market and was enthusiastically received by the gaming community, receiving 4.5 out of 5 stars. Tens of thousands of users successfully downloaded the new app but, due to unknown reasons, Google has pulled it from the Market. Gamers wishing to experience Kongregate Arcade will be happy to learn it is now available for download at http://kongregate.com/android.
A rather weird situation, that's for sure. Apparently it happened because the Kongregate app is used to download other apps, and that violates the Android Market Developer Distribution Agreement. Whoops. [JoyStiq]
