A lot of people have been waiting to get their hands on the Android version of Vendetta Online and now the wait is over. Before you get all excited though, there are a few requirements that need to be met. First you’ll need a Tegra 2 tablet, but we already knew that. Secondly, it has to be 7″ screen size or bigger.
Meganoid is a retro-styled platform game with all sorts of goodies included. Brought to us by the ever awesome crew at OrangePixel who tend to make some of the best retro-style games for Android. Your goal is to get through each stage and collect the gems, except half of them are hidden (at least it feels that way)!
We are in San Francisco for GDC 2011 and upon arriving and checking our inbox, we got some great news from the crew over at nVidia which will answer a question a lot of you new Tegra 2 Android device owners have been asking. nVidia’s Tegra Zone is now available for you to download off the Android Market.
Unigine is a 3D game engine that, up until recently, was strictly for Windows/Linux/PS3. Now it supports Android game development with future mobile platforms to be supported in the future. It is nice to see a game engine jump onto Android first when regarding mobile game development, then other platforms later.
Our friends over at Pockett just got in touch with us to share a little exclusive trailer they happened to have filmed at MWC 2011. Qualcomm was showing off what can be done on the Scorpion processor by getting Southern Interactive, a game development studio from Sweden, to show of Desert Winds on Android.
Monster Madness has been one of the games we’ve really been waiting for to be released onto the Android Market. Finally the wait is over and all you lucky people with a Tegra 2 device already are going to be happy. Monster Madness, made with Unreal Engine 3, is a top-down shooter where you will be blasting away at a variety of monsters.
There really isn’t too many ways to make the game of Chess easy on the eyes and more enjoyable to play but Polarbit seems to have found a promising solution in their new game called Chess – Battle of the Elements. Partnering with Pinyl Studio, Polarbit brings the game of Chess with an elemental twist and a 1000 puzzles.
GDC 2011 is only a few days away and as it gets closer, the rumors are starting to fly. One such rumor is that iOS developer Firemint is planning to unveil their Real Racing 2 game ported over to Android. Real Racing 2 has won multiple awards since its release onto the App Store and Firemint is now looking to unleash it onto Android as well.
One game we were lucky enough to get a hands-on with during CES 2011 was Vendetta Online which looks absolutely amazing. Vendetta Online for Android is a port of the very popular space action-MMORPG game of the same name. We are still lucky to be one of the few to ever see this game in action on a tablet in person.
Another game, or series of games actually, that we got to check out and get some hands-on time with back at CES 2011 was Hardwood Solitaire IV by Silver Creek Entertainment. This game is actually a set of 10 different solitaire games to play but unlike most solitaire games for any system, visually this game was stunning.
