If you own an Xperia phone or Sony's Tablet S, then you're finally going to get a treat before the others do. The Tiny Bang Story is a game centered around the inhabitants of Tiny Planet. An asteroid did a number on this planet, and now it's in shambles. Fortunately, you don't need cheap labor to rebuild. Just some solid problem solving skills.

Update: The exclusivity period will last until August 5 2012.

The game features a wide variety of puzzle games, including actual puzzles. As in, with pieces that you put together. The variety of brain teasers is actually pretty impressive and the artwork is fantastic. The game interestingly touts a text-free experience. So, sorry if you were hoping for instructions, but on the upside, the developer promises that game play will be intuitive and immersive. We'll see how that goes.

At least for now, though, if you don't have an Xperia device or a Tablet S, you'll be left out in the cold. Sorry Tablet P owners. Unfortunately, exclusive agreements are becoming more and more common in the Android gaming world. It's already become increasingly risky for an avid mobile gamer to not buy a Tegra 3 device, and agreements like this risk dividing the markets even further. There's no word yet on if the exclusivity will end at any point, but for now if you want this game, you're out of luck if you don't buy Sony.

    Not to be That Guy, but calling this game "new" is a bit of a stretch, considering the PC version is more than a year old.

    Haven't bought it, but it says compatible with both HP Touchpad and Galaxy Tab 10.1

  • Sven Enterlein

    Not available for the TF101. But it looks interesting enough that I would actually play it. Not many games get me that interested!

    I would really like a 4:3 aspect ratio in 9 inch. Thats the reason I didn't get the nexus 10 I use tablets mostly for reading and the 16:10 aspect ratio sucks for that
