First look: Cordy

Cordy is a jump and run developed by Silvertree media, until now this nice Jump and run that is build with Unity was PC exclusive.
You play a robot with a screen for it’s head, that can swing with his cord and will get upgrades, that are then displayed on his face.
The game looks very bright and plays very fast paced, looks like a real good Jump and run to me.

You can try it yourself at and soon you can play it on your Android. The game will be free with in-app purchases for more levels.

Telltale games made a name for themselves by doing serialized adventures with huge success, they brought back these classic games and when they license games, they managed to keep the wits by working closely with the original developers.

Sadly the games are too advanced for your standard Android device, that’s why they are exclusive for the time being on Tegra 2 tablets.
Sam & Max Season 3 was shown and it ran beautifully, they also showed Trailers of Back to the future, their newest adventure, that will hopefully also come to Android, it is not officially announced yet.

They also showed iPhone hit Puzzle Agent on the booth of our beloved plattform. It will be just a matter of time, until we can get all the new adventures on our devices, so stay tuned.

Here are some videos of the games they’ve shown.

Qualcomm teases AR Games, will show them at MWC

Posted by Dan Mousavi On February - 9 - 2011ADD COMMENTS

Qualcomm uploaded a compilation of the best entries that were submitted to their developer challenge.
Back in October 2010 Qualcomm released their SDK and they announced a developer challenge with cash prices up to 200000$. In November they released their SDK as a plugin for Unity, which made creating awesome games with it very easy, if you already had experience with Unity.
Since the devkit is still in beta, this is the first glimpse you can get on the future Augmented Reality games on Android.
All games that are shown run on a Nexus One or similar handset and when the Qualcomm Ar Kit is officially released, a lot more Android handsets will be supported.
