It's certainly been a good few days for Android gaming, hasn't it? And it looks like the trend is still going: the hotly anticipated Android version of popular iOS game Dungeon Defenders has just landed in the Market with a holiday price of $3. What makes the game so great? Aside from the fact that it's powered by the Unreal engine (!) - which means the graphics are superb - it's long been one of the best-rated iOS games on the market. And indeed, after just an hour on the Android Market, the game has 15 ratings for an average of 4.8 stars.

Note: the video is for the iOS version, but it's virtually identical to the Android version.

The minimum requirements for the game:

  • 512 MB RAM (256 free at runtime)
  • GPU capable of OpenGL ES 2.0
  • Android 2.2 Froyo
  • 800 Mhz CPU or greater recommended
  • SD card with at least 600 MB free storage

The team has also announced that an PvP expansion will be coming to DD:FW in the form of Dungeon Defenders: Arena, for both iOS and Android. Check out the trailer:

Certainly looks impressive, doesn't it? If you're ready to take the dive, head over to AppBrain or scan the QR below.

    Most of the reviews in the market say that it's really choppy on most phones, if it runs at all. It also takes longer than the new 15 minute refund window to download, so once you pay for it, you won't be able to refund it if it doesn't run on your phone. Make sure you do your research before you buy.

    • Aaron Gingrich

      Just saw this on Twitter a little while ago: in light of the stupidly-small refund window, the dev is offering a refund if you contact them via email (using the support email).

    Working for me now.
    and people complaining about lags should either read the description properly or have a look at the graphics quality in the options menu.. Runs like a charm for me

  • cyd

    If you got a goddam cheap phone this game is not for you.

    Love the game, if you like tower d and rpg, its the perfect game for you. Takes a bit to get into the system though. Look forward to all the improvements that are sure to come. Does anybody know if it will support android tablets?
