While OnLive has had its share of challenges, it hasn't seemed to have affected the general consensus that cloud-based gaming is a good idea. Casual game maker Big Fish either didn't notice or didn't seem to care about OnLive's stumbles as it launches its Big Fish Unlimited for Android devices. The service is offering more than 100 casual games for free via Google Play.
The "universal cloud gaming service" is available on Android tablets via Google Play, only a month after making the service available on PCs. Big Fish Unlimited lets customers play casual games that are running in the cloud and are instantly accessible on a variety of connected devices via interactive streaming video. Game progress is saved remotely, allowing customers to continue their sessions across devices, which includes PCs and Android devices. The next stop for the service will be Internet-ready TVs later this year through a partnership with Roku.
You can find out more about the service by visiting www.bigfishgames.com/unlimited. Big Fish Unlimited also comes with a subscription, which gives access to a premium catalog for a $7.99 monthly fee. Customers can also play free games from a rotating catalog supported by advertising.
