Astraware, the excellent British mobile game developer, has just released their first game for the HP TouchPad, Astraware Mahjong. While webOS may not yet be totally dead, as HP have made the decision to open
source the entire operating system, this release still carries a fair amount of risk for Astraware.
Nevertheless the team, who we spoke to at the London webOS event are obviously very fond of the TouchPad, and want to release more games for the tablet, so they have come up with a very clever idea, the TouchPad Totalizer.
The Totalizer shows the current sales of Astraware Mahjong for the TouchPad. When the total increases to certain levels, then the team will begin to release new games. Astraware Solitaire, Casino and Sudoku, along with puzzle game Oddblob are currently the set target points.
We will be reviewing Astraware Mahjong for the TouchPad early next week so you can decide whether to increase that total a little. Check out the the TouchPad Totalizer here.
