Google Play is the first and the largest market for distributing our Android games. But it’s definitely not the only place to distribute your game.
Given the open source nature of Android, many device makers have already replaced google play with other emerging markets to monetize the segment.
Given the fact that end users generally search the default market place on their device for games, it may be a good idea to explore a few other channels
1. Amazon App Store
2. Opera Mobile App Store
Given the reach of Opera in the browser segment, they have a sizable customer base to tap into.
One of the older app markets out there with a tie-up with a large number of Android device makers, this is another good market place to get attached to.
