I have a few apps on goggle play but looking in to expand the market to amazon.
Is it admob over there also or wath should i Think about?
I publish free apps so i use adds to earn anything.

Seams pretty straightforward when looking at amazons developer page?

Cliff, I love ya man, and I admire your work, but one thing you GOTTA do is spell-check. Seams are for clothing or veins of ore in rocks, and no such english word as wath.

I'm just yanking yer chain, I know you polish your apps before release.

Most of the stuff carries over pretty well, so you could just upload the same APK to Amazon, and last I checked AdMob still worked on there. There are some differences if you use the GameCenter commands, or In App Billing, in which case you should export an Amazon app using the APK export dialog.

You don't need to change anything in your code, but when you export your APK choosing Amazon will link the GameCenter commands to Amazon's GameCircle API, instead of Google's Game Services API. This will mean you need to setup GameCircle if you want to use the GameCenter commands on Amazon.

Ok that explains Everything
Amazon is a clone of goggle play with its own gamecenter with its own identifiers for Trophys and leaderboards.
I have planned to use my next Project as a test template and if it works well transfer my other 2 top games also.

So simply put amazon have its own gamecenter but admob works the same ….

Thanks for the feedback paul




I have about 1-2 months left Before a public beta...

Many bugs and more traps to add.

GOORK is looking fantastic Cliff!! Looks like it could be a metroidvania. If you weren't thinking of that maybe add some elements of metroidvania in it. As far as I can tell metroidvanias are still quite popular people just eat them up.

One of the best ultra low rez metroidvanias is probably Environmental Station Alpha... very cool game and I think yours already looks as visually interesting if not more so.

Anyway just a suggestion that might help with the marketing since a lot of folks love metroidvanias (and admittedly I enjoy them and will make one at some point but if I can get you to put some elements in yours then I can just play GOORK instead! HA HA HA!)

I'd given up on using Amazon Gamecircle. First I couldn't get it to work properly, then after a couple of weeks of messing with it, I find it's being deprecated on the 4th of September and new Gamecircle submissions will no longer be accepted. >see link here<
