Today we’re thrilled to announce PlayPhone’s support for HTML5 games across all Android devices, which include our very popular operator direct-billing capabilities for purchasing premium games and in-app purchases. Not only does this represent one of the largest single boosts in gaming exposure for HTML5 developers, Android gamers now have a level of access and discoverability that was previously impossible.
As of today, all of PlayPhone’s Android game stores, including the US, Asia and South America, will be a one-stop destination for both Android and HTML5 games. PlayPhone will promote HTML5 games via featured-game and featured-developers sections and via game recommendations based on user activity and history. Players can also easily browse a new ‘Web Games’ section of the portal.
Like native games, HTML5 games have a Game Detail Page and can be part of the featured/top/trending sections. PlayPhone supports both premium and freemium HTML5 games and seamlessly integrates its popular Playcredits™ virtual currency to make it faster and easier for gamers to make in-app purchases.
Developers can expect improved discoverability, higher engagement and better monetization for their HTML5 games. For developers already on PlayPhone’s mobile gaming platform, no action is required; PlayPhone will migrate their games from existing HTML5-only stores to native game stores. New developers only have to integrate PlayPhone’s HTML5 SDK.
