Still Not a Lot of Games For LG Optimus 3D and HTC Evo 3D

September 15th, 2011 · 13 Comments · Other S3D Tech

I’ve decided to check what is the current situation with games specially made for the new 3D-capable Android-based smartphones such as the LG Optimus 3D and HTC Evo 3D that continue to generate a lot of buzz as they are becoming available on more and more markets worldwide. So I’ve went to Gameloft’s website to check what games they have made for these devices and more specifically what 3D titles are available. Why Gameloft, well, because they are one of the most active game developers that is focusing on making stereoscopic 3D games for 3D capable mobile devices. But you should also know that it is still hard to find stereoscopic 3D games for these devices if you go directly on the Android market with the reason for that being the fact that 3D in games is mostly used when referring to have offering 3D graphics and not stereoscopic 3D support. So finding stereoscopic 3D games for a 3D-capable smartphone is still something that might not be as easy as it seems…

HTC EVO 3D is still lagging a bit behind the Optimus 3D from LG as there are fewer games available for it, and we’ll have to wait and see if they will quickly pick up the pace, especially since Samsung is expected to soon join the race for 3D-capable smartphones as well. At the moment Gameloft has a total of six stereoscopic 3D games for the HTC Evo 3D smartphone, these are: Asphalt 6: Adrenaline 3D, Assassin’s Creed – Altaïr’s Chronicles 3D, GT Racing: Motor Academy 3D, Let’s Golf! 2 3D, N.O.V.A. Near Orbit Vanguard Alliance 3D, Spider-Man: Total Mayhem 3D. Furthermore you can also find Angry Bots 3D for HTC Evo 3D on the Android Market, available as a free demo and only for the HTC as it requires Android 2.3.3.

As I’ve mentioned LG is a bit ahead with 3D-capable applications for the Optimus 3D smartphone, but they have a bit strange policy in distributing the apps through different places. Gameloft has the most 3D games in one place, but even some of their titles are only available through the LG World’s 3D Zone (for some regions) and I couldn’t easily find any game on the Android Market that supports the phone’s 3D display. The 3D games that the LG Optimus 3D P920 smartphone currently has available (maybe not in all regions) on Gameloft’s site are 11 in total and these are: Assassin’s Creed – Altaïr’s Chronicles 3D, Dungeon Hunter 2 3D, Eternal Legacy 3D, Fishing Kings 3D, James Cameron’s Avatar 3D, Modern Combat 2: Black Pegasus 3D, Real Soccer 2011 3D, Shadow Guardian 3D, Shrek Kart 3D, Spider-Man: Total Mayhem 3D, Star Battalion 3D. That is of course on top of the few 3D titles you get preloaded on the phone. Furthermore you can find the free Archercraft S3D game on LG World’s website as well as some of the Gameloft’s games that you can also get from Gameloft directly.

    Since LG is introducing the auto stereoscopic conversion for OpenGL games things are going to change soon :-D

    Yes, the “3D Game Converter” is expected with the update next month. But it will only give more advantage to LG, others such as HTC will still be behind and with Samsung also expected to soon introduce their Galaxy 3D smartphone…

    Indeed, I’m very much waiting for the Samsung Galaxy 3D, till I make my decision on which 3D phone to get, If it has the speed of the S2 and the colours of the S2 then for me the Galaxy 3D is a no-brainer despite it’s resolution short comings compared to the EVO, heck they may even match that, who knows?

    How do you get any of these games?
    I don’t see them in the Android Market…
    (I own the LG P920 phone)

    The games ‘should’ be available from gameloft website.

    But I tried to buy let’s golf 2, after identifying my country, operator, make (HTC’ and model (EVO 3D), the site tells me that this game is not availaible for this phone ?!?

    So I emailed the french commercial team that answered the same think.

    Do I have to look for a warez version to get it, if sales support can’t help me ?

    Use the “3D games” app on the LG optimus 3D/Thrill to purchase all the gameloft games.

    Balloon Gunner 3D is available on Android Market and supports the LG Optimus 3D, LG Thrill, and HTC EVO 3D.

    It’s also FREE.

    Finally got the 3d version of Asphalt 6 and the accelerometer is not available for steering in 3d mode. Major disappointment. Evo 3d.

  • 11 Bloody // Jan 10, 2012 at 11:02

    Using the accelerometer requires you to tilt the phone to steer and that is not a good idea for stereo 3D mode as you may loose the volume effect when moving the device…

    I getting bored with evo 3D…..no more new games, no software to convert 2D games to 3D. Cannot play 3d mkv movies in 3D. converting 3d mkv to mp4 will triple the file size. Thats stoopid.
