Here at DroidGamers we are always looking to do different and unique things with Android gaming. We’ve ran our own competitions already and there have been a few instances in the past where other companies have ran their own as well including Major League Gaming. However, if Android gaming were to actually break into the eSports scene on a more serious level, it would be interesting to see what games people would like to be able to compete in.
One game we have talked about a few times in the recent past was a game called TurtleStrike by eeGon. This particular game is all about taking your team of bad ass turtles, heavily armed ones at that, and destroying anyone else who tries to challenge your turtles with their own team. Well TurtleStrike has now launched on Google Play as of yesterday. Today, however, is the big day and that is because the first TurtleStrike tournament is starting and you’ll have a chance to win a piece of the $5,000 prize pool. And yes, that is real money.
