NVIDIA SHIELD users who may be looking to expand their game library are in for a treat, as a handful of SHIELD exclusive games available in the Google Play Store are now offered at a discount. The list includes several games that are currently available for half the usual price, and prospective buyers can even choose from (now) classic titles such as Doom 3: BFG Edition and Super Meat Boy, just to name a few.
NVIDIA’s SHIELD products offer one of the best mobile gaming experiences on the market, but most noteworthy exclusive titles do come at a price. Fortunately, SHIELD owners can now take advantage of hefty price cuts for 10 SHIELD titles in the Google Play Store, including Doom 3: BFG Edition which is now available for 50% off, or $4.99. The game needs no introduction to Doom fans, and while Doom 3 was a departure from the classic action-filled Doom formula in favor of slower-paced gameplay with jump-scare elements, it’s still considered a classic title and has a lot to offer for a mobile game. Another title that might get the attention of mobile gaming enthusiasts (or Metal Gear fans who may have been disappointed by Konami’s recent Metal Gear Survive announcement) is Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance - available now for $4.99. The game was initially released for the PlayStation 3, the Xbox 360, and Microsoft Windows in 2013, and was re-released for the NVIDIA SHIELD in January 2016. Those who may be searching for a solid “platformer” experience can have a look at Super Meat Boy (now for $7.49), and puzzle enthusiasts might be interested in Parallax ($2.49), or Q.U.B.E.: Director’s Cut, which could be described as a first-person puzzle game similar to Valve’s Portal, without the portals and the passive-aggressive GLaDOS A.I.
Other titles currently available at a discount are Pix the Cat for $2.49; Q*Bert Rebooted ($2.99) which was remastered for the NVIDIA SHIELD and includes “the Classic pixel perfect 2D arcade version of Q*bert Arcade”; Stealth Inc. 2 ($4.99); Stikbold! for $4.99; and Ultimate Chicken Horse ($5.99). Keep in mind that the discounts are valid only for a limited time, and remember that the games are meant for the NVIDIA SHIELD so make sure that the titles are compatible with your Android-powered device(s) before making a purchase.
