Amazon's own game studio releases its first game for Android and iOS
The first game of Amazon's very own game studio is called Air Patriots and can now be downloaded from the Google Play Store, the Amazon Appstore and Apple's App Store for free.

Air Patriots is a strange kind of a tower defense game, where instead of building towers, you counterattack the attacking forces with a fleet of planes. Actually, the game is a weird kind of fusion between tower defense and Flight Control, where you draw movement lines for your planes and watch them wreck havoc upon the attacking forces. There's a total of 7 different levels (or settings), each with three difficulty settings and a "Survival" mode which continues indefinitely.

We tried the game and have to say that it's quite fun, especially if you happen to be a fan of the Flight Control-type games.

I wonder where Amazon is heading. We've seen both Apple and Google expand into spaces they didn't originate in. I'm curious to see what Amazon's focus will be in the next few years. At any rate, I definitely wanna try this game.

They should probably stick to making tablets... a amazon skinned Android device wouldn't be very reasonable... after all, there bookstore is larger than there Appstore

Amazon is a very cool company. They are always trying to stay relevant in today a market. Not my type of game bit it looks good.

Yeah, but I wonder how much Amazon can do well if they start venturing to far from their core business model. The Kindle made sense because Amazon started as a book seller. eBooks also needed a cheap push into the 21st century. The original Kindle did that in a great way. Making a tablet was a natural progression of that. But making games seems somewhat odd. Granted Amazon is a great retailer for games by other companies, but making their own? I'm not knocking it, but I'm wondering what's next and what their focus will be. Is a smartphone really something they should do and how does it help their business?
