Ho there, adventurers! Are you tired of running through the jungle, and ready to do some actual exploring? Then Hamilton's Great Adventure might just be for you. It's the latest in Nvidia's stable of ported games exclusive to Tegra hardware. Don't let the title fool you: Hamilton's Great Adventure is in fact a puzzle gam through and through, with some light twitching and platforming elements for some extra spice. The game is available now, at a pricy $3.99 split up into two chapters.

Aside from the lush atmosphere and tricky puzzles, the biggest draw for the game is its unique structure. Players control both the title character and hit pet bird Sasha, who flies around the level opening paths and collecting treasure. While there are hazards and enemies, the pacing is pretty chill, so those looking to relax with a challenging  brain teaser or two will feel right at home. While stages are timed, you aren't required to finish within a time limit - quick completion with extra treasure is entirely optional.

If you're on the fence, we'll have a review of Hamilton's Great Adventure up soon.

    Seriously, they need to stop with that tegra crap.

      I agree, but this shows compatible with my "galaxy nexus" SGS3. I changed the build.prop for GWallet. I'd be afraid to buy it though and end up telling me it won't work on load up.

        Actually, it shows as compatible with my sorta stock SGS3 as well. I'm not really willing to drop $3.99 to see if it's just a fluke though.

          tegra games sometimes show as compatible on exynos chips, but they actually arent (verify this for yourself)

    I despise Tegra exclusive titles. This game looks really fun, and I have a Nexus 7 but I won't touch it. Why? Because It won't work on my Nexus 10 or upcoming Nexus 4. There is certainly no good reason why these Tegra optimizations couldn't exist along side optimizations for other titles, as is customary for many games. Even if Tegra is the first platform targeted, developers can add additional GPUs to the manifest in future updates.

    I made the mistake of purchasing Shadowgun with its artificial "tegra only features" for $5, and can only play it on one of my three devices. Never again.

    The game is listed as compatible with my Exynos based I9300... even though the name suggests otherwise ("Hamilton's Adventure THD").

    I wonder if this is an error, or if it is not really Tegra exclusive after all...

    • defred34

      it is...all thd games shows as compatible for exynos (verify for yourself!)
