Adding another entry to the Tegra Zone's small, yet ever growing collection of Tegra 3 optimized games, Pitbull Studio Ltd is planning to release Big Top THD in December 2011. Big Top is a cartoony, yet lavishly styled game that lets you run away to the circus, while fully utilizing the awesomeness that is NVIDIA's powerful quad-core superchip.

Big Top THD takes players through a beautifully-rendered circus, including pie throwing, plate spinning, juggling, and diving challenges as well as testing a handful of other typical circus skills.

Besides allowing players to try their hand at various circus acts, the game is technologically stunning, incorporating real-time shadow generation, per-pixel lighting, and sophisticated animation capabilities.

Big Top looks like a lot of fun, and appears to be a fully-structured game, rather than an interactive technical demo like Glowball. In any case, you can check out Big Top THD's official listing at NVIDIA's Tegra Zone for more screenshots and a full description.

    i hope we don't get stuck with a whole bunch of "tegra 3 only" games like tegra 2. that's so fucking retarded and only fragments android even further

      I doubt that will happen anytime soon unless Tegra suddenly becomes part of every Android phone. Tegra 2 and 3 phones are only a very small portion of the market, no developer wanting to make serious money would support only Tegra devices unless NVIDA invests their own money to do so.

    Hope all these "Tegra 3" games will also be able to run on Tegra 2 as well, at least to some extent. Cuz if they don't I just don't see the point anymore.

    correct me if i'm wrong, but can't you play THD games on any other phone with the use of the Chainfire 3D app? at least, i thought that was possible...

      Specifically, Chainfire3D with the NVIDIA plugin, but it can be glitchy because Pinball for Tegra's menu text doesn't appear on my Galaxy S II!
