Amazon Game Studios releases first mobile game, Air Patriots

Amazon Game Studios today launched Air Patriots, the developer’s first mobile title for Kindle, Android and iOS.

Air Patriots is a tower defense game where players use planes to fend off an invasion of tanks. Users draw the paths for planes to follow and attack hostile units, changing their patterns to meet different waves of enemies. This sounds like it’s similar to the flight path mechanics used in Harebrained Schemes’ recent defense title Strikefleet Omega. The game’s graphics are also designed to take advantage of HD displays on mobile devices.

This is Amazon Game Studios’ second title, following the social game Living Classics (which launched in August). Since Living Classics came out on Facebook, the game has yet to really take off on the social network, as our AppData traffic-tracking service shows the game is currently at 10,000 daily active users and 140,000 monthly active users.

Air Patriots is free to download on the Amazon Appstore for Android, Google Play and the Apple App Store.
