If, like me, you're a fan of the action-horror genre of gaming, then you'll be pleased to know that Dead Space just landed in the Android Market, leaving its EA Store exclusivity behind.

This gripping sci-fi thriller not only brings intense gameplay to your mobile, but a rich storyline and cinematic horror that is sure to chill you down to the very bone. Stunning visuals, along with a movie-quality score make this game a must have for anyone looking for more than simple puzzle games on-the-go.

It's not all about looks, though - this game also features intuitive controls that integrate directly into the game. Simply tap and swipe your way through the carnage and macabre environments.

The mobile version of the game also features a couple of exclusive weapons, as well: the Plasma Saw and Core Extractor. The names alone invoke the desire to shred something up, don't they?

There is one downside though - it's not available on tablets. Hopefully EA will push an update to this game of gruesome goodness that will enable tablet support in the future - why have all that awesome if you can only play it on a tiny screen?

The game will set you back seven-bones, hit the widget to buy.

    I don't understand, i've been playing this game for months, on my optimus one and my tablet. Why this article now???

      It's new in the Market, EA has had a bunch of games in their store nobody knows about that they've been adding to the Market. For example, this game, Monopoly, etc.

    ugh... EA is the worst dev

  • gary

    I played this on my sensation. It killed my battery in no time.

    It's new in the fact that it's now available on handsets other than sony I believe.

    Compatible with my Droid but not my Transfomer? WTF EA?

    • Dandmcd

      Makes no sense to me either. I would throw a lot of money EA's way if they would support the devices I own. EA needs to find some talent for their Android team, they clearly are just doing half-assed work, and not bothering to support their games once released.

      Not available on my Samsung Epic 4G Touch, but is available on my previous generation Samsung Captivate??? teh eff???

  • Pranav

    Not supported on the Nexus S...WTF???

  • Letifer

    anyway, it's one of the best games i've played on android. I wonder why EA doesn´t have more games like this.

  • entropic

    Is this just an android remake of the original game, or is it a different story all together? I'm a huge fan of the Dead Space series, just not sure I want to toss my money towards a game I've essentially played...

    • Letifer

      it's a completely different history, not a remake.

      • entropic

        Thanks. Looks like I'll be picking it up then.

  • Pat

    Crashes on Droid 2 :(

  • Letroy

    The developers of this game should learn a few tricks from Gameloft. Or give them the right do the port entirely, because supporting about 5% of all devices isn't going to help EA's reputation..

    Galaxy Nexus not supported...

    • entropic

      Galaxy Nexus is totally supported. I downloaded and played it last night on my Nexus... granted I didn't get very far - but at least the opening intro works.

      • Sebastian

        Market says to me my device is not compatible...

    • http://lettersfromdave.wordpress.com daveloft

      It's exclusive to the Verizon Galaxy Nexus. If, like me you have a GSM Galaxy Nexus, your out of luck. Stupid EA and their dumb exclusives. They did it with NFS Shift and Madden as well. It just makes the game that more popular to pirate

  • Yourissues

    How can it run on my OG Droid but not the Bionic? Really EA?

  • R Girard

    Bought Dead Space about 3 weeks ago, $6.99, for my samsung fascinate. Had to reformat my phone. When I went to reinstall Dead Space, Market states that the game is incompatible with my phone and won't let me download. Kinda weird I bought it originally from the market and now its not offered.

    Dead space crashes on my kyocera echo. Is there a fix for this?
