First Unreal Engine Android Game This Week

Ron Whitaker over at Gamefront tells us that the Unreal Engine has been ported to Android (much sooner than expected) and that the first game, Dungeon Defenders: First Wave, is actually coming to the platform THIS WEEK!


Check it out...
Quote:
Dungeon Defenders: First Wave is the inaugural title for the Engine on Android, featuring cooperative multiplayer, online connectivity, and seamless drop-in-drop-out gameplay. As you might expect, all this awesomeness has a few minimum phone specs attached to it. Here’s what you’ll need in order to play Dungeon Defenders:
  • 512 MB of RAM
  • 800 MHz processor
  • 400 MB of storage
Did anyone think this would happen so soon?

Wow, it seems like only yesterday when those specs were top of the line for a home desktop.

But it wasn't yesterday, it was a decade ago for the most recent component of the bunch. You're now old. Olllldddddddd-da.

Android needs to address the spec issue quickly -- they better make it real easy for consumers to determine if their phone meets the minimum requirements or not.

Android is turning very quickly into a PC -- check your RAM, Processor, OS version, etc.... Which is cool for geeks, but is very hard to compete against iPhone and WP7 where they have system requirements.

"As smartphones become ubiquitous accessories, unexpected consequences can result. In this blog, InfoWorld's Galen Gruman looks at some of the unintended consequences of mobile technology's ubiquity, in which very useful technology can also raise issues. For example, the U.S. Army has put out a training video to tell troops how to disable the location detection on iPhones and Androids so they can't be tracked when on deployment. That's just one example of the behavior and awareness that most people haven't yet grokked. Others involve cameras, microphones, and USB drives."

Quote:
"Why Android is the new Windows: Windows' dominance of the PC market has been good in many ways: reduced hardware costs, increased IT literacy and a standard development platform to name a few. Perhaps Android will bring similar benefits. But unless Google are very careful, it is likely to bring some of the same problems, too."

I try to break it down like this for casual people asking for advice on smartphones

iPhone = Wii that is as powerful as the 360
WP7 = 360
Android = PC

I think those are fair comparisons to how each platform is generally handled. Obviously a few holes in there, but I think the easiest way to talk to people who know about gaming, but not much about smartphones.

Android is really cool for hardcore geeks or people who really want to tinker with their phone -- the same people who liked Windows Blinds, etc...

However, I think for the average people iPhone or WP7 is the better alternative.

If your phone doesn't meet the specs, the app won't show up in the market at all for you.

No, they are direct reflections of a person's wealth, success, amount of friends, happiness, capability and coolness.

The game looks cool, but I'll be damned if I can tell what the hell is going on in those videos.

Every Android phone needs to have a little green robot on the back, that would go a long way I think :P

Why wouldn't it? The current crop of high end android phones have faster hardware than anything on iOS. The real question is, why has it taken so long.
