Gameloft, the gaming studio behind such games as Modern Combat 2, N.O.V.A. 2 HD, and Asphalt HD, has recently released a new game for all you mythology and movie fans out there. If you're familiar with Gameloft's games, though, this may be a bit different from what you've grown accustomed to.

From the movie "Immortals", you play Theseus, a-hackin' and a-slashin' through all sorts of fun Greek and Roman mythology, including, but not limited to, minotaurs, titans, and generic disposable guys in strange armor holding swords. It's a side-scroller and, on top of what I assume is 100% historical accuracy, the graphics are reminiscent of games designed during that time period.

Here are some screendhots straight from the vomitorium for your viewing [dis]pleasure:

DroidGamers seems to think that this is just a direct port of the Java game created to tide us over until the release of the REAL game later on down the line. We, however, are not entirely convinced a better version is coming at all. As it stands, this is the game we have right now, so if you've got three spare dollars, you can find Immortals in the Android Market by using the widget below:

    Wasn't their AC Revelations game a shitty J2ME game as well?

      Yes it was, both looks like SNES games with SuperEagle emulator filter. They didn't even improve graphics of j2me, it's just resized! It's nothing near the newest Block Breaker 3 HD.

    Man, why all the hate for spritework?

    My Nintendo looked better than this. Sprites aren't a problem, but ugly sprites are.

    My favorite part of this article is definitely Vomitorium.

    My favorite part was when he spelt screenshots wrong.
