To take advantage of the Nexus 7’s new guts and high resolution screen, the company demoed some brand new games coming to the Play Store soon that further pushes the limits of mobile gaming. Among the new titles, Google Play Product Manager Ellie Powers showed off RipTide 2, Prince of Persia: The Shadow of the Flame, and Asphalt 8. They all look incredible for being mobile apps.
Google didn’t go too in-depth when demoing the games, but what was shown off looked mighty impressive. The envelope is definitely being pushed quite a bit—graphics have improved exponentially in such a short amount of time, and in such a small package, buyers are getting a ton of value. When introducing these titles, Google called the new Nexus 7 the “ultimate gaming device.” We’ll see about that.
RipTide 2 should be available now on Play, while Prince of Persia and Asphalt 8 will be here soon.
