Halfbrick Acquires Onan Games, Could Lead to Larger Distribution for Games

Halfbrick Studios have announced that they’ve just acquired Onan Games and in particular their Mandreel technology which allows games to support iOS, Android, Flash and HTML5 development from one C++ code base. The potential to this is incredible and could lead to their insanely popular games Fruit Ninja and Jetpack Joyride being ported to more devices and possibly seeing a Facebook or other web version of the games.

As a recent new owner of an Android phone (finally joining the future with a smart phone), I would absolutely LOVE to have Jetpack Joyride ported to it. It’s one of my favorite mobile games I’ve ever played and to this day I still find myself booting it up on my iPod Touch to play all the time. In all honesty I sometimes take my iPod to work just so I can play Jetpack Joyride on my breaks.

When he's not writing about games or playing them, he's playing in the Kansas City band "Documentary" and drinking as many different beers as often as he can. He's a huge comic nerd in the best sense of the term, with a particular love for the Creator Owned movement.
