Dark Meadow: The Pact survival horror game released for Tegra 3 devices

Those of you who have a soft spot for games like Resident Evil, Alan Wake, Condemned, Silent Hill, and other creepy survival horror games will be happy to know that a new option has landed in the Android market. Courtesy of Phosphorus Game Studios, it’s called Dark Meadow: The Pact and it places you in the shoes of a character who wakes up in a hospital with your ordinary case of amnesia.

This hospital isn’t quite so ordinary, though, as no one else there except an old man who is too frail to break free. The reason he’s too frail is because an evil witch must be killed before whatever spell she has on that hospital is lifted.

It’s up to you to kill her using weapons like a bow and arrow, swords, and more. I’ve been playing the game on the Transformer Prime (our review is coming soon) and the Tegra 3-optimized version of the game really helps make it more captivating.

It was developed using the same engine that Gears of War 3 was developed with, Unreal Engine 3, and it definitely shows. Look no further than the trailer I’ve embedded above to get an idea of what I’m talking about.

For now, this one’s Tegra 3 only. If you have a Transformer Prime or any other phone or tablet with Tegra 3 check the game out in Tegra Zone and the Google Play Store. Oh, and it’s free — can’t really go wrong there! [via NVIDIA]

Classic PC racer Death Rally gets another lap on Android

It’s a good time to be an Android owner and a classic gaming fan. The latest 90s-era game to come to Android is the racing/shooting hybrid Death Rally, a Twisted Metal-style game that pits your customized war machine against other on the highway to he… er, Arkansas. The tongue-in-cheek game was released for iOS last year, but now it’s available on Android for free, bupkiss and nada. Imagine it as Reckless Racing with machine guns, and you’re just about there.

Death Race hit the PC scene way back kin 1996. Then and now it comes from developer Remedy, better known for Max Payne and Alan Wake. At the time it was a popular slant for racing games, as Twisted Metal had lit up the original PlayStation the year before. Death Rally focuses more on actual racing than the likes of Carmageddon and such – you can have a lot of fun duking it out with your fellow racers as you demolish various urban landscaped, but if you don’t finish in the money, you’re wasting your time.

The original game is naturally somewhat dated, but the Android version gets updated graphics via the re-release of Death Rally in 2009. That being the case, you’ll want a decently powerful phone or tablet to play it – something in the range of a Tegra 2 would be preferable. No matter what hardware you’ve got, it’ll work on Android 2.2 or later. It’s a free download, so if you’re near a WiFi network or you’re lucky enough to have an unlimited data plan, give it a spin. Load up, strap in and hang on.
