Are you ready for another awesome giveaway? This may be our best one yet (but trust us - we've got some even better ones coming), and once again, it's open to a whole host of countries around the world (we've added a few more EU countries, so check the eligibility list). For your consideration, today we have 3 Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 bundles up for grabs, which include the Tegra-powered Galaxy Tab 8.9, Jambox wireless Bluetooth speaker, and $25 AMEX gift card.
The amount of quality games for Android just keep growing, and show no signs of slowing anytime soon. To add to the list of OMG that looks incredible! games, SoulCraft THD will be coming to Tegra-powered phones and tablets later this month, bringing an action packed holy war to the palm of your hand.
The premise of the game is pretty sick: humans are on the verge of discovering the key to eternal life, but the angels and demons have something to say about that.
A new game listing hit the Tegra Zone earlier today, introducing The Dark Meadow – a sophisticated entry into the first person action/adventure genre, built on Unreal Engine 3 and optimized for your Tegra device.
Update 12/14/11: Official Android teaser:
Here's a trailer from the iOS version:
With The Dark Meadow, Phosphor Games Studio submerges players in a "dark fairytale world filled with fantastical creatures bent on destroying them." Certainly, dark is a bit of an understatement – the environments and characters look downright disturbing.
Hey you! Take a break from dragon slaying for a moment and install this live wallpaper.
Nvidia has created this Skyrim live wallpaper, in case you somehow forget during the day you would rather be at home parked in front of your computer.
This picture isn't entirely accurate, when you get it on a real device, there's snowfall and rolling fog. Other than that, there isn't much to it. The foreground and background are on different layers, so they scroll at different speeds when you switch screens.
Update 2: Looks like the kinks have been worked out, and it's now available on the Galaxy Tab 10.1.
We first told you about Zen Pinball THD back in May, and it finally landed in the Android Market just a bit ago. I got the opportunity to test out the APK a few weeks ago, and I can assure you, it was well worth the wait. This is probably the single best pinball game that I've played on any device - the graphics are great, the tables are fantastic, and the overall feel of the game is absolutely stellar.
If you've been envious of some of the awesome new games rolling out for Tegra devices, then you'll be happy to know that two popular Tegra-only titles - Shadowgun and Sprinkle - have just been updated to bring compatibility to non-Tegra devices.
Shadowgun, a futuristic action-shooter, is probably one of the best games for Android to date, sporting insanely good graphics, a decent storyline, and compelling gameplay. This is one game that should definitely be a welcome addition to any gamer's catalog.
Be sure to check out our Shadowgun Giveaway pack post, too - you could win an Galaxy Tab 8.9, a Jambox, and a $25 AMEX gift card!
Shadowgun is a game we've been following since its announcement for Android earlier this year. A couple weeks back, we received a preview build to test the game out (that link contains a gameplay video as well). Now, I've played the full version of the game and can report my findings more completely.
As always, we'd like to thank NVIDIA for providing us with these awesome prizes to give away to you, our readers. NVIDIA has been an amazing partner and allowed us to conduct so many awesome giveaways that we're not quite sure what we'd do without them.
When we first saw ShadowGun back in May, we were immediately struck by what was at the time a platform demonstration for NVIDIA's Kal-El quad mobile processor. Character textures were the best we'd seen on any Android game, and the environments looked rich and well-crafted.
Now the developer, MadFinger games, has given us (and a number of other sites - no one has the full version yet, and I mean no one) a pre-release version of the game to try out - optimized for Tegra 2 processors (a Kal-El optimized version will be released later).
