Tomb Raider, the reboot originally released in 2013, is now available natively on the SHIELD TV

Lara Croft has been raiding tombs, pillaging pyramids, gutting graveyards, burgling burial chambers, robbing resting places, and knocking over necropoli for over twenty years now. If you're feeling nostalgic, you can play the original action-adventure PC game, Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, on just about any Android phone. But if you'd like a more recent and fresh take on the series, there's the 2013 reboot-slash-prequel. Originally released on the PC, PS3, and Xbox One, it's the latest full console game that NVIDIA has coaxed into working on its SHIELD TV powerhouse. It's available now on the Play Store for $15. Note that this is a local, native Android game, not a streaming release on GeForce NOW (though the game is also available in that format).

[Deal Alert] The original Tomb Raider is down to 10 cents in some countries

If you've never played the original Tomb Raider, you really should. All jokes about Miss Croft's polygonal charms aside, it's a certified classic that was one of the first action games to get third-person shooting and platforming right way back in the PlayStation era. The Android port has been available for over a year for the very fair price of one dollar. But if that's too rich for your blood, the game is back on sale for just ten cents in a lot of countries. And for once, they don't include the US.

[Update: Now $0.99, 80% Off] Lara Croft GO Is 60% Off On The Play Store, Down To $1.99 From $4.99 In Many Countries

To celebrate the release of Rise of the Tomb Raider on Xbox consoles, Square Enix is discounting its Lara Croft GO game by 60% on the Play Store. It's a flash sale though, so you might want to hurry and grab it if the game seemed appealing to you or if you liked its spiritual predecessor Hitman GO.

Lara Croft GO is a turn-based puzzle adventure, where you play your turn moving your character along predefined paths, then wait for your opponents to make their move. There isn't a lot of urgency in the game, so you can take your time exploring the 75 different levels and figuring out the best way to finish them, all while listening to a nice soundtrack and enjoying the smooth animations and low-poly-like designs.

[Update: Coming August 27th] Square Enix Announces Adventure-Puzzler Lara Croft GO, Coming Later This Year

Tomb Raider I Drops To $0.10 On The Play Store In Some Regions

Back in April, Square Enix released the original Tomb Raider game on Android for just $0.99. The title that began Lara Croft's long-lasting career as a polygonal heroine came to Android with all the levels (and dinosaurs) players remember, along with the "unfinished business" levels. The controls aren't ideal but the game brought controller support and an undeniable nostalgic vibe.

Today, the classic title has dropped to just $0.10 on the Play Store. Compared to the already low price of just under a dollar this might not seem like a huge drop, but honestly at a dime it's even harder not to grab Tomb Raider if you haven't already.
