Did I mention this has been an exciting week for Android Gamers? I’m going to have to start deleting some apps to make room for all these new games. Anyways, Gameloft has announced the release of 10 HD games for Android before the end of December. Gameloft, for anyone who doesn’t know, is a leading publisher and developer of some pretty kick-ass games. Their only pitfall seems to be their distribution methods, which are — the opposite of kick-ass! Despite their lack of support for the Android Market they continue to push out stellar games and this Holiday installment is no exception. I’ve already told you about 2 of the 10 games HERE so let’s go ahead and take a look at the other 8 games which are sure to have you second guessing that Gameloft strike you’ve got going.
