Nova 2 HD Now Available In The Android Market


Following up on their promise to offer more of their games in the Android Market, Gameloft has unleashed N.O.V.A. 2 HD for the Android masses. While technically, the game has been available to download for some time through Gameloft’s website, it’s just now hitting the Android Market for everyone else to enjoy. Well, maybe I shouldn’t say everyone. As of right now, the game only supports a handful of devices but if your device is packing a beefy GPU like the 2nd generation Snapdragon, Hummingbird or Tegra 2, you should be able to find it just fine in your Market without any problems.

Nova 2HD is a followup to their mega successful FPS shooter Nova HD (that usually comes pre-installed on most new devices) and raises the anty with improved graphics, all new enemies, AI, vehicles to mount, and loads of new weapons. If you’ve played the original Nova, the developers even have a few surprises awaiting like extra XP in multiplayer and unlocked weapons right off the bat.

The game reminds me of a cross between Halo and Crysis but custom tailored to the small screen. Controls are tight and visuals are sharp. This is definitely one of those games you can show your friends to showcase the power of your smartphone.

The game is available for $7 on the Android Market and while that may be a little rich for some people’s blood, I consider it a steal considering I would have paid a lot more for near console quality FPS action on any of my other handhelds. Here’s the Market link for those interested in seeing if it shows up on their device. You can also get the game for a discounted $5 via Gameloft’s website.

I've been obsessed with consumer technology for about as long as I can remember, be it video games, photography, or mobile devices. If you can plug it in, I have to own it. Preparing for the day when Android finally becomes self-aware and I get to welcome our new robot overlords.
