Bladeslinger by Kerosene games

This just was released on the Play store and supposedly has some exclusive Tegra effects. Wanted this game but it wouldn't play on my 3GS so I'm all over it!

Sorry. That sucks. But once Tegra 4 hits, I'm sure I'll be in the same boat with my Nexus 7.

Not compatible with Nexus 10. Sigh... Oh, well, at least I'm not short on new mobile games that will run - just still infuriates me the number of developers who completely ignore what's supposed to be one of Google's flagship Android devices. I'm amazed EA made Real Racing 3 N10 compatible, put it that way, given how many things they pulled from it.

Hang in there guys, we're adding support for more devices tomorrow! We should work just fine on Nexus 10, we just had some issues publishing the multiple packages today and only got the Tegra build squared away. If you've got 512MB+ RAM, Bladeslinger should run on your device. We just have to post a few more builds tomorrow. Thanks for your patience and the kind words!

Credit where it's due, that was fast. It seems to run fairly smoothly on a Nexus 10 - though it's not at the full resolution (which I'm guessing was maybe intentional?) and there are minor shadow and texture errors all over the place (signs flickering in and out of the walls they're hanging on, stuff like that). Just for the record. Still bought it.

This game kept crashing on my GNex, so I uninstalled it. Haven't tried it on my Nexus 4 yet. Every time the game crashed, it would kick me out to a blank homescreen and my Wi-Fi would be disconnected. I have a solid Wi-Fi connection at home, so either my GNex just can't handle the game or the game itself has a bug.
