Google Pulls Kongregate Arcade From the Android Market


Just hours after it launched, Google removed the Kongregate Arcade app from the Android Market [http://www.android.com/market/] for violating rules against apps that distribute other apps.

Released yesterday, the Kongregate Arcade app offers direct access to more than 300 free Flash games on the GameStop-owned Google [http://www.kongregate.com] pulled the app from the Android Market very shortly after it launched.

According to a statement later released to Android Market Developer Distribution Agreement [http://www.joystiq.com/2011/01/18/kongregate-arcade-removed-from-android-market], specifically a rule against apps that distribute other apps. Details are a bit short but the complaint would appear to relate to the fact that the Kongregate Arcade allows Flash files to be downloaded for offline play.

That's really not the intention of the rule Google said it infracted upon. The app is nothing more than a web browser aimed at Kongregate.
