    One thing android is missing at the moment is motion blur (opengl2.0 which is only rolling out for android now). That means some good looking 3d games dont look as good as iphone counterparts because you can see the texture edges etc.

    But, for 3d i'd look at:

    Raging Thunder
    Wave Blazer
    Armageddon Squadron
    Speedforge
    Armadillo roll (depending on your phone!)

    2d Id look at:
    Radiant
    totemo
    Motox mayhem
    Joyland bounce
    Flying Aces
    robo defense

    good games are still pretty recent for the iphone....once third party developers jump onboard droid will have the same games. Gameloft is really the only dev on iphone making high quality games. Once they come over things will be different ;)

    I write about technology for Maximum PC and Tested
    in the Transcend
    They make Android games already. The problem is they seem to put effort in to their Android offerings. They've also complained publicly about not getting many Android sales. Plenty of games sell on Android, they just put half-baked stuff out there. That's why no one buys them.

    Note: I wasn't aware we couldn't swear on these boards. I'm a little taken aback. Anyway, sorry if I warped anyone's fragile mind. I'll try to filter better...

    Yea like assasins creed for Android is pure crap compared to the iPhone counterpart. Gameloft doesnt really try with thier Android ports. Its ok though. I have an iPod Touch so I'm enjoying the best of both worlds.

    Hopefully games will improve. You'd think these game companies would jump on the bandwagon. It's not like droid phones are decreasing in numbers.

    If you want to show off, or any reason really, you might want to see:
    Asphalt 5
    Assassin's Creed
    Hawx
    Nova
    Sandstorm
    Need for Speed Shift

    These are great games, all in my collection.
    PS: all payed games.

    I own every single game mentioned above me (except dead spaxe, some thru sales, some acquired illegitimately) and none of them are a smooth 60fps. Any game that doesnt at least reach that framerate makes me dizzy and feel as if the devs got lazy, as they decided to half the number of frames every second just so the textures look better for screenshots on the Market, hoping for more downloads and thus greater revenue. Asphalt 5 for example is amazing in teztures and framerate, and the best looking game I own. Asphalt 6 on the other hand tried to up the ante byadding better effects and higher res textures, but the framerate is at an abysmall 40ish, which my eyes cant stand.

    But seriously, what a thread bump! Twice in two years

    Shadowgun is available on the regular market too, and runs flawlessly on the EVO 3D. I agree with Adam that some games, Asphalt 6 for example, don't run that great, but other games with awesome graphics such as both the MADFINGER games do. The tech Unity3D tech demo looks amazing too.

    Never heard of TinTin before, but that looks pretty good; I think I'll give it a shot.

    EDIT: The market description says that it is compatible with the EVO 3D but when I search for it in the market with my phone it doesn't come up. Also, looking at the latest reviews with the recent update they posted it seems they completely overhauled the game and it is now some crappy 2D POS:

    LOL, guess I can disable the nvidia plugin then. :D

    It's not 2D, watch the video, the game is clearly 3D.

    I saw the video on the Market, looks like a cool game, I'm just going off of what recent reviews in the Market have said. People are saying when they first installed it, it was a very cool 3D game that ran pretty smooth. With the recent update (1.0.9) they now have some 2D side scrolling game or something (may be something they added/changed for lower end devices?).

    Either way, it's not available for me even though it says it is in the list of supported devices they have in the description... =(

    Depends on the phone and version.
    Asphalt 6 runs perfect on my Galaxy S BUT using a different version isntead of the Galaxy S one. Lame by Gameloft indeed lol
    I contacted them about it and they were going to "look into it" many moons ago. So I paid for the Galaxy S version but have to run a pirated version for another phone that not only looks better but runs at 60....awesome

    An update for TinTin. It is not available to anyone in the US until the 21st because of the movie launch. I had no idea they were even making a movie. o.o Hopefully that holds true, looks like a cool game.
