We just received a tip yesterday from Dave Loft who was the person responsible for bringing to light Gameloft’s DRM policy issues awhile back. According to Dave, you are now available to get Avatar HD for your phone from the Gameloft website and sure enough after checking out the link it is there and is available for purchase at $4.99. It looks real good too!
It would appear this is perfect timing and completely synced up with the re-release of Avatar 3D in theaters which features 9 extra minutes of never before seen footage (oh boy!) which also came out yesterday. The game itself looks very good as with all of Gameloft’s HD games so far.
- Uncover an original story that takes place two decades prior to the film and learn how the first avatar came to be.
- Go on a journey of exploration, danger and adventure in an unimaginable world. Fight for survival in tense action sequences against ferocious beasts and carnivorous plants. When the battle reaches its height, take to the skies of Pandora on a banshee in epic shoot‘em-up sequences.
- Join the Na’vi in their native village. Help protect their world by accepting their mission: To fight against and conquer the human invaders.
- Explore every aspect of Pandora, the world created by James Cameron. Discover 15 levels, from the human-built mines and military strongholds to beautiful waterfalls and lush jungles that come alive at night with bioluminescent plants.
- Discover Na’vi fighting techniques. Train your precision as you master the bow, perform combos with your fighting staff, and deploy the humans’ high-powered energy weapons.
- The voice of Neytiri in the movie narrates the epic story.
- On-screen controls
While the quality of this game looks to be on par with the rest of Gameloft’s HD games for Android, hopefully the execution is more polished. Every time Gameloft releases a game or launches anything it seems to be plagued with issues, everything from the purchasing/downloading/installing to the actual game working.
You can pick this up off of Gameloft’s website right now for $4.99USD which is cheaper then all the other HD games for Android they have. Maybe it is an introductory price? If it is now is the time to get it before the price goes up. Unfortunately looking at the “Try Before You Buy” page for Android on their site does not list Avatar HD on there yet.
[Thanks Dave for the tip!]
