N.O.V.A. 3 for Android is now available to download from Google Play, nearly three weeks after making its debut on iOS. Gameloft's latest first-person shooter is the closest you'll get to Halo on your smartphone or tablet right now, and it promises to set new benchmarks for graphics and gameplay.

Four months have passed since Kal ruined the Volterites' plans by sabotaging their war factories, and stopping the extraction of the Judger Artifacts. However, following the assassination of President Folsom, the government surrendered the colonies to the Volterite Protectorate in order to prevent civil war.

Kal Wardin has been laying low since Folsom's death, but now he has received a desperate plea from Yelena to come to Earth.

Once again, the hero must rise to save mankind!

N.O.V.A. 3 boasts an epic storyline that includes ten immersive levels; a 12-player online multiplayer mode with six different game types; multiple weapons and powers; and, for the first time in a N.O.V.A. game, the ability to team up with friends and drive vehicles across the battlefield.

N.O.V.A. 3 costs $6.99, which may seem pricey for an Android game, but it's definitely worth it if you're a fan of FPS games. You'll need a device running Android 2.2 or higher to install it, and at least 2GB of free storage.
