Green Throttle speeds up to launch with pre-orders and games line-up
Green Throttle Games has unveiled a line-up of six games that will be available on its Green Throttle Arena application when its Atlas controller for Android officially launches.

Three of the six games were developed in-house by Green Throttle Games itself – Crystal Swarm, Coral Combat and free demo Fish Tails.

San Francisco-based studio Free Range Games will also bring three titles to Green Throttle's Arena in time for the Atlas controller launch – Blox Party, FreeFall Tournament and APO Snow.

All three have already seen release on Android or iOS.

Weight of the world

Green Throttle Games has also announced that it is accepting pre-orders for the Atlas Controller, which brings mobile gaming to the TV by enabling gamers to use their Android smartphone or tablet as a console.

Consumers who order the two-player bundle for use with the Kindle Fire HD will be charged $89.99 and receive an Amazon gift card for $10.

A single Atlas controller currently carries the pre-order price tag of $39.95, although postage is additional outside of the US.

Developers may be interested to hear that the company recently unveiled new software plug-ins for Unity, Marmalade and the Corona SDK.
