As we discussed earlier in the day, Google's Android platform isn't shaping up to be the iPhone killer the web giant had hoped (though it is just as clear that Android has yet to carve its niche).
And it seems that this slow start for the smartphone operating system extends to developers as well as users. Android developer Larva Labs has posted horribly disappointing sales figures for two of its top games, which are ranked at numbers 5 and 12 in the top paid applications list on the Android Marketplace.
The two games - Battle for Mars and RetroDefense - have averaged just $62.39 per day over the last month. Larva Labs's Matt Hall attributes the poor performance of his games to the unintuitive, cumbersome nature of browsing and purchasing software on the Android Marketplace.
Although Google has promised improvements to the system, it seems like a wasted opportunity when so many developers are vehemently voicing their aggravation at Apple's submissions policy for the App Store.
