Kongregate 300 Free Game Deal Dashed by Google

BUMMER it Appears that the No-Show for Kongregate's 300 Free Game App yesterday was more than a glitch. Google has decided to take the app down because it infringes on their rulebook. Google says that the app was in violation of the Android Market Developer Distribution Agreement because, as you know, the app was distributing apps. Can't do that! You can still access the app via their mobile website, but for now, it's disappeared from the Android Marketplace.

You can access the Kongregate app now by going over to http://kongregate.com/android and downloading the apk. Take a peek here at the statement Kongregate sent Joystiq on the matter:

As reported earlier today, the Kongregate Arcade app was launched on the Android Market and was enthusiastically received by the gaming community, receiving 4.5 out of 5 stars. Tens of thousands of users successfully downloaded the new app but, due to unknown reasons, Google has pulled it from the Market. Gamers wishing to experience Kongregate Arcade will be happy to learn it is now available for download at http://kongregate.com/android.

Kongregate has also updated their Twitter to read "We're working with Google to restore access in the Market, but in the meantime you can download it from http://www.kongregate.com/android."

ALSO NOTE: The app requires that you have Android 2.2 (Froyo) or higher to function!

    I didn’t bother to download this yesterday, but now that it’s banned from the market I did.

    I bet getting banned is great for Kongregate.

    There’s that continuum again. You should probably crop that unless you like to show it off.
