    You know high-tech gaming has arrived on smartphones when you see games powered by the Unreal Engine 3. Coming December 23rd we will get to see a new one. The "tower-defense" game 'Dungeon Defenders: First Wave' will be available and it looks pretty impressive. It has multi-player and even co-op modes, so you can game with your friends. The game also has on and off-line campaign mode, challenge missions, and a Leaderboard.

    It also has some pretty steep requirements to run. It needs the following specs in a phone: 512 MB RAM, GPU capable of OpenGL ES 2.0, Android 2.1 Eclair, 800 Mhz CPU or greater recommended, SD card with at least 400 MB free storage. Pretty steep, but then again, it is the Unreal Engine 3 we are talking about. That's the same game engine used in the 'Gears of War' series on the PC and XBOX360.

    Here is a current list of Android smartphones that have been tested for compatibility:
    • All Tegra 2 Based Devices: Fully Compatible
    • Nexus S: Fully Compatible
    • Samsung Galaxy Tab: Fully Compatible
    • Samsung Galaxy based Cell Phones: Fully Compatible on all with 100 MB RAM free
    • Droid 2: Fully Compatible
    • Droid X: Fully Compatible
    • HTC Evo 4G: Fully Compatible
    • HTC Incredible: Fully Compatible
    • myTouch 4G: Mostly compatible, have some occasional stability issue
    • T-Mobile G2: Fully compatible
    • Dell Streak: Fully compatible
    • HTC Desire: Fully compatible
    • Nexus One: Fully compatible
    When it first hits the market in just a few days it will be available for $2.99. Check out the game-play video below:

    Personally it looks like a phone screen would get a tad crowded; this would probably be a lot more enjoyable on a tablet.

    It is more enjoyable on a Tablet but it is most enjoyable on a PS3 or XBox 360. They had to remove things in order to play it on a mobile device that will show up on the computer or console.

    I'm pumped for this! I'm a big fan of Pocket Legends, so this should be fun also! Just checked and it's not out yet, but I'll keep checking! :D

    I keep checking the market, but nothing. :( I hope it really does come out today. Also, I checked the site and there was no information about it being on the the Android Market. :?

    I hope we didn't get some false information about it truly being released on the 23rd.

    Well I would be patient but they already released this for the IOS and considering that open c language isn't all that different from what android uses Java I don't understand how a simultaneous release couldn't be acvhieved

    How many games are released on iOS and Android at the same time?

    Pocket Legends wasn't released at the same time. It had been out since April and we just got it. It isn't just something so simple as porting code over, iOS has few devices and mostly the same hardware so it is easy to develop and program for. For Android they have a lot more to do because of all the different types of devices.

    They said last night one simple play through for all the devices they had would be all that is needed so long as all went well, and obviously it didn't.

    Also, Android will start on a newer version of the game than Apple users.

    Read this:

    So they had to test all this stuff and make sure it is working before the iOS users got to give any feedback on how well it went. Be happy we are getting the updates first.

    Well you would have a valid argument if device specifics made a difference but they don't you don't buy a pc game designed specifically around your dell or hp or acer nope just a pc version. Same here android is android no matter what device it sits on. The device ie droid x will scale programs based on its own hardware via its kernel

    I think I am done trying to make sense of it all for you. You obviously believe that porting games from one iOS to the other when it comes to multiplayer games is as easy as copy and pasting code. There is no explaining to you or having you be patient. Hopefully the game is out soon so you can stop complaining.
