Apportable shows its cross-compiler chops in new Humble Mobile Bundle

Apportable has revealed it's collaborated with Humble Bundle for a seventh time in order to bring the criticallly acclaimed iOS title, Ridiculous Fishing: A Tale of Redemption, to Android in Humble Mobile Bundle 3.

Dutch indie studio Vlambeer had originally developed the game in Objective-C, specifically for iOS devices.

Porting power

Greg Wohlwend, a developer working with Vlambeer, had previously worked with Apportable to bring iOS puzzler Hundreds to Android.

After being impressed by Apportable's technology, he enlisted the firm's help to produce an Android version of Ridiculous Fishing.

Through the use of Apportable's cross-compiler, Vlambeer and Apportable were able to get the game working on Android without significantly changing the original code.

Two other Apportable-powered Android titles, Kingdom Rush, and Spider: The Secret of Bryce Manor, were also part of the third bundle.

And, more generally, over a dozen indie developers have used Apportable to create Android builds for Humble Bundles.

What do you call someone who has an unhealthy obsession with video games and Sean Bean? That'd be a 'Chris Kerr'. Chris is one of those deluded souls who actually believes that one day Sean Bean will survive a movie. Poor guy.
