Gameloft's newest gaming title, BackStab HD, is available to users of high-end Android phones, the company announced minutes ago. Thankfully, the new title, which is a bloody (oh yes it is, just watch the video below), sword-bashing 3D game that reminds us of Assassin's Creed, is available in the Android Market for $6.99, honoring Gameloft's promise to deliver more games via our preferred channel as opposed to their own off-Market web store.

Take on the role of Henry Blake, a broken man whose life was stripped away, and help in his quest for justice and revenge.

Climb, jump and sneak your way through diverse settings to reach your target and strike down adversaries.

Use your deadly fighting skills and the combo-based combat system to defeat your nemesis and anyone else who gets in your way.

Roam freely across a huge island and gaze upon its magnificent full-3D environments and experience the feeling of an immersive, realistic world around you thanks to impressive non-player character interactions with true-to-life voice effects.

Gameloft's previous two titles that the company released in the Android Market were N.O.V.A. 2 HD and Order & Chaos Online.

    No galaxy s2? How high end do you want? Surely must be on the way

    How is it possible that my phone (I9000) is in the supported list, but the market says "This app is incompatible with your T-Mobile Samsung GT-I9000."? I get this for every new gameloft game.. gameloft support didn't answer.

  • Jaymoon

    Gameloft thinks so backwards it's not even funny.

    The slow Evo Shift is supported... but not the Evo 4G or the Evo 3D.

    These games work on the 4G/3D when "obtained through other means", yet when I go to purchase them straight from Gameloft's mobile website... "Your device is not supported".

    Screw you then Gameloft.

      The EVO Shift has a GPU that's twice as powerful as the original EVO, so no surprise there. The EVO 3D, on the other hand, I'm not sure about.

  • Álmos

    I always said if Gameloft would release their games to the Market I would buy them. Now they have, but I still can't buy them for whatever reason! Screw them, I'm just glad we have Android warez sites.

  • RockinEvo

    That's crazy the Evo isn't there, thought they forgot since they posted the shift. Hope eventually it will become available looks interesting

  • y0himba

    How can they leave the Droid X2 out of all of this? Dual core nVidia Tegra chipset. Huge screen. Fast.

    • Petman1325

      I find it quite odd that the Droid X is in there, yet the Droid 2, which is essentially the same exact specs, isn't supported.

  • Ben

    The Evo 3D has been left out of all the new releases. I emailed Gameloft about it and just got some lame generic reply about how they can't provide me with information about future releases. Maybe if enough people bug them about it they'll take some action.

  • Vince

    That's all these guys do. Just copy other games and port them to phones with a different title. Gangster City? Modern Combat? BackStab HD? Just sad....

    • http://www.AndroidPolice.com Artem Russakovskii

      They still make the best games, whether they copy the idea or not. Because of Gameloft, Android has something to show in the gaming department. With all their minuses, I think the pluses still outweigh.

      • Vince

        Still, it would be better if they came out with more original titles and games that were more suited to the mobile platform instead of straight ripping.

  • Dennis

    Get over yourselves. I don't know what flavor kool aid that Sprint has been giving you but the Evo isn't as "high end" as Sprint or any fanboy would you have you believe. The Evo's GPU is a so far down the shit house that if you gave it an increase, the smell would be repugnant.

  • RaptorOO7

    IF they consider the DX to be a high end phone then a D2G, D3, DX2, SGS2, etc, etc. should qualify.

  • Elias

    Galaxy S supported, but not Captivate? Wtf?

  • Kam

    wow that looks like assassins creed to the bone. Thanks BackStab HD, now assassin's creed cant do pirates.

  • Josh

    No Photon 4g Support. While the Evo 4g's Adreno may not be able to handle it , I would think that the Photon 4g would. They dont like money? or what?

  • Robo

    For god sake, y don't you fkers, make the game to support on dell venue, no gameloft hd games supporting for dell venue????????????????????????????????

  • Black

    Get your phone rooted.... edit the build.prop (manually by file editor, not with build.prop editor) to make your phone as Samsung I-9000GT (If your phone has powerVR GPU)... and voila.... backstab is up and running... if you don't have powerVR GPU try a different build from the above list or use ChainFire to simulate powervr... Have fun everyone.....
