For whatever reason, 3D technology is on the rise. Some TV's, smartphones, and even portable game systems are now shipping with some sort of 3D technology baked-in. For those who want a taste of what 3D is all about without having to shell out more cash on a new device, though, comes an interesting new game: Crash Course 3D.

CC3D is a modern take on the arcade-style shooters of yesteryear, with a couple of interesting twists. First off, the game offers a unique 3D-mode that supports anaglyph 3D glasses (red/cyan or green/magenta), so users can get a taste of what blowing things up is like with an added dimension. If you're not into 3D, though, don't stress - you can also play the game in good ol' 2D.

Like other arcade shooters, this game is played from a top-down view, but instead of killing your foes on a completely flat background, you race around a sphere to eliminate the alien scum. This adds a whole new element of gameplay compared to traditional alien shoot-em-ups, and makes the game all the more interesting.

    This isn't new at all...lol  Granted I'm getting this now, it's a blatant rip-off of Super Stardust.

      "New Game" doesn't indicate it's a new idea, only that it's a new game to the Play Store.

         But you used the word "unique."

          And to Android, it is.

            There was Tegra pinball with 3d support (anaglyph)

            3D support isn't what unique is referring to but rather the concept of such a top-down game flying around a sphere on Android - I've never seen a game like that before.

      It indeed seems to be a rip-off of Super Stardust, though I have to clarify that Super Stardust is on PS3 and not on Android, so for an Android game, it's a new and fresh idea compared to all other top-down shooters. Plus, it's really well-made (in Unity 3D) and supports 3D.

      Here's a nice trailer of Super Stardust for comparison: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pYql98tL-t4

    I take it the game doesn't support the EVO 3D...

    I'm now curious. Just checked this on the Store and it says it's compatible with my TF101. But as far as I know, the Original Transformer has nothing to do with 3D. Or am I wrong?
    All this time and I didn't even know it could offer me a 3D experience...or I'm being a fool and the fact PStore says it's compatible just means the TF101 can play it on 2D mode.
    Anyone who owns this tablet and uses the glasses can tell me?
