Well it was bound to happen sooner or later with the onslaught of tablets coming to light with Android on them. Hard Kernel, who developed the ODROID, has now developed the ODROID-T. This is a tablet designed with high definition video and gaming in mind. The original ODROID was a PSP looking device running Android 1.6 (upgraded to 2.1) and seemingly sold out quickly.
Myself, along with probably every other developer and Android site, got an email today inviting us to join in on the Adobe Air pre-release. I’ve taken a bit of time to look through everything and I have to say it is pretty impressive, of course speaking in a strictly gaming aspect. When signed in to the pre-release program you have access to the beta Air 2.5 SDK with Android support.
From the developers of some great games such as Shoppers Paradise and Archipelago comes Dragon Fire. Second Gear Games has ported over their iPhone game Dragon Fire to Android. This game is a mix of traffic control style game and puzzle where in you have to direct the path of colored balls of fire with various switches to complete the puzzle/stage.
While looking through the market for new games to try out I came across one called Force of Attraction or FoA for short which is developed by Milleson. This is a neat little platform game where you control your guy, completing each stage by figuring out the correct way to get to the key you need before you can unlock the door and progress to the next stage.
So far I haven’t really seen a drinking game available for Android that has actually peaked my interest enough to download it and play. However a game called Bluff Dice caught my eye and after downloading it and playing, it’s actually fairly entertaining. Bluff Dice, developed by Net Mobile AG, is sort of a cross between poker style bluffing and Yatzee.

Shoot U! is a great physics drawing game by Camel Games which makes you draw various shapes before to accomplish your goal each stage. What is the goal? To shoot the little guy in each stage and make him land in some fashion on the star. While sounding simple it quickly gets difficult to pull off getting the little guy to the star. Now you can shoot your friends!
Well it seems the huge outcry over Gameloft’s DRM policy hasn’t fallen on deaf ears as Phandroid is reporting that, via Dave Loft (Mr. Gameloft tipster himself), that they have announced a change to their DRM policy. The change states that users are now allowed to re-download games purchased through their website although it’ll take some time to implement this.
Dvide Arts recently put their full 3D RPG game Crusade of Destiny onto the Android market with the promise that their FPS Zombie game, Welcome to Hell, would be follow shortly. Well it is now available on the Android market for you to grab and get your zombie killing fix. This is a full 3D FPS game using the ShiVa 3D engine as well just like their previous game.
