Hamilton's Great Adventure THD Review: A Puzzle Game That's Heavy On Charm... And Frustration

It's time for yet another Nvidia-only game with the "THD" label, and like the excellent Zombie Driver, it's a pilgrim from the PC and console shores. Hamilton's Great Adventure has been a sleeper hit on Steam and the PlayStation 3, thanks to its adventure game presentation and challenging, go-at-your-own-pace puzzle structure. You follow the exploits of Indiana Hamilton and his pet bird Sasha, as they trounce around ancient ruins in search of the Fluxatron, which Hamilton's professor buddy needs to finish his Transmorphanizer. For some reason. THe game is available today in two parts, at $3.99 each.

Gameplay boils down to finding the best path through each level for Hamilton, while switching to a bird's eye view with Sasha to explore the level and open up the path.

[New Game] Hamilton's Great Adventure Brings An Indiana Jones-Style Puzzler To Nvidia Devices

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.

[New Game] Orgarhythm THD (And Its Crazy Expensive Add-On Packs) Is Ready For Tegra Devices

We touched lightly on Orgarhythm THD back in June, but it's finally hit the Play Store, at least for those of you rocking Nvidia Tegra-based phones and tablets. Formerly a PlayStation Vita exclusive, it's a strange mix of strategy and rhythm games that looks a lot like a more serious, groovy version of Nintendo's Pikmin. The music game comes from Acquire, the same Japanese developer that brought us the visually interesting but ultimately disappointing Sumioni. Screenshots really don't do Orgarhythm justice, so check the video below (PS Vita version).

Sumioni's high price was a hard pill to swallow, so Acquire has gone a different route with Orgarhythm.

HTC One X+ Review: A Mid-Cycle Refresh Makes A Great Phone Even Better

The HTC One X was (and still is) a fantastic device thanks to its solid hardware, excellent build quality, and stunning display. But it's a little long in the tooth, partially because the newest high-end smartphones have both quad-core CPUs and LTE, and partially because in the smartphone world, anything that's 7 months old is (unfortunately) outdated.

That brings us to the HTC One X+, which is more of a mid-cycle refresh than an all-new model. It keeps the same basic frame and the outstanding display, but packs a more powerful version of NVIDIA's quad-core Tegra 3 CPU, and the AT&T variant even comes with LTE.

Expendable Rearmed Review: Everything Explodes, And That's Alright

There are plenty of games in Google Play these days, but I sometimes feel like developers forget to code in the fun. Games are supposed to be fun, right? And what's more fun than shooting anything and everything in your path with a rapidly rotating assortment of weapons? Not much, if you ask me. With that in mind, Expendable: Rearmed has a lot of potential. This is a port of a classic top-down arcade shooter from the Dreamcast, and it is all about destruction.

Gameplay

I am told there is a backstory to Expendable: Rearmed, but try as I might, I can't think of any reason to care about it.

Viva Media's Freemium Crazy Machines Golden Gears Hits The Play Store And Tegra Zone With Rube Goldberg Action

Viva Media has just launched its award-winning Crazy Machines Golden Gears to the Play Store (with expected Tegra Zone availability), looking to bring the Rube Goldberg-inspired dreams of a mad scientist to your mobile device while challenging players to use boards, boxing gloves, laser beams, and dynamite to achieve various goals in each level.

For now, the game features only its "Challenges" gameplay mode, which will take players through a series of levels each with their own end goal, but a "Create – Share" mode is promised to be "coming soon."

It's up to player to use various tools to accomplish those goals, but the levels get progressively harder as the game continues.

Beach Buggy Blitz Drops Tegra Exclusivity, Gets Halloween-Themed Update

When it came out early last month, Beach Buggy Blitz was one of an increasing number of Tegra-exclusive titles to hit the Play Store, which understandably upset some people. Namely, those people without Tegra devices (what a great excuse to buy a Nexus 7, though).

Now, the game has gone for a wider audience, and is available for most modern, high-end phones. The only specific handsets named are the Galaxy S III / II and One series, but there are obviously plenty of others that should be able to handle Buggy Blitz.

The update for non-Tegra compatibility also brings a Halloween theme to the game, which adds the "Grim Rod" car and two new drivers.

Razor Salvation Review: The Only Salvation Comes When You Stop Playing

This game seems to have everything going for it. It has an alien invasion, destroyed cityscapes, big guns, and Tegra optimization. By all rights, Razor Salvation should be a killer game. This title isn't free and it's a big download, so you should know what you're getting into. Let's see if it's worth your time.

Gameplay

The premise of Razor Salvation is epic, but poorly explored. The gist of it is that aliens have invaded Earth, and you have to land your dropship in various locations to save as many humans as possible. As you progress, more of the background regarding the Xenos invasion and the infected human population is revealed.

[New Games] Tegra Owners Get A Double Dose: Sumioni And Razor Salvation Hit The Play Store

Tuesday is traditionally the release date for new games, but those of you who have an Nvidia Tegra-powered smartphone or tablet can get your hands on two brand new titles this evening. The first, Sumioni: Demon Arts, is a port from the PlayStation Vita game of the same name released this spring. Razor: Salvation is an iOS convert, gracing Android after its debut in the summer. Sumioni is a pricey $12.83, while Razor is $2.03 with in-app purchases, both prices in USD. Non-Tegra owners need not apply for either, at least not yet.

SUMIONI Demon Arts

Sumioni: Demon Arts is a rather unique title, giving the player control of a demon who paints his way through levels with a calligraphy brush.
