Square Enix has finally ported its game – Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light – on to Android. We reported that this game is coming to Android way back in September last year, when it was supposed to arrive in November but it took nearly a year to get released. Meanwhile, the iOS version has been selling since last year and even the PlayBook got it in April.
Like we said back then, this version of the game will be exclusive to the Xperia series of devices for a limited time. Also, not all Xperia devices but just the Xperia S, Xperia ion and the Xperia PLAY. Every other device will simply show up as incompatible on the game page.
For those who are not aware, Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light is a 3D action-adventure game that uses an isometric camera angle like in the RPG games. You control the game’s protagonist Lara Croft through a wide variety of levels as you try to stop Xolotl, the God of Darkness who is out to plunge the world in darkness. With the help of Totec, the Guardian of the Mirror, you have to take the Mirror of Smoke away from Xolotl and defeat him before sunrise.
The game has the exact same level designs as the console and desktop version, except the graphics have obviously been toned down a bit and controls have been added on the screen.
Lara Croft and Guardian of Light is currently available for a limited period discounted price of $1.29 but will soon go back to the full price of $2.99. Unfortunately, the Play Store does not allow you to purchase a game if a supported device is not associated with the account like the App Store, so you can’t buy it now for a lower price and play it later when the game becomes available on more devices.
In other news, the iOS and PlayBook versions are also on sale with the iPhone, iPad and PlayBook version being priced at $0.99, $2.99 and $1.29 respectively.
