Amazon has also introduced "GameCircle for Kindle Fire" and opens up APIs for Game Developers.

"GameCircle helps game developers grow their business by enabling them to easily integrate new features including achievements, leaderboards and sync, leading to a more engaging gaming experience for millions of Kindle Fire owners," amazon wrote.

This company also hints that millions of people are already using a vast selection of games on Kindle Fire's vibrant color 7′ touchscreen with extra-wide viewing angle.

The new GameCircle APIs will help game developers quickly and easily integrate their games with GameCircle, allowing them to grow their business by reaching new customers and keeping them engaged.

Achievements allow players to track all earned trophies, treasures, badges, awards and more while they're playing games on their Kindle Fire. "Players won't have to leave a game to receive messages, get updates or track accolades. They can also pause a game, view an achievements summary, determine what badges are still needed or desired, and then return to gameplay," Amazon informs.

Leaderboards provide an in-game view of score comparison information and percentile ranking, allowing players to quickly and easily check standings against other players without ever leaving the game.

Sync automatically saves players' in-game progress to the cloud and allows them to pick up exactly where they left off when restoring a deleted game or switching between their devices. "Players will no longer have to worry about losing game progress, scores or achievements between Kindle Fire devices, as all data is securely stored for free in the cloud," amazon adds.

Developers can now access the GameCircle APIs and find more information by visiting here.
