Lara Croft: Guardian of Light available on Google Play, Xperia-exclusive for now
There’s more to the ’90s than mIRC and the hours spent there that we won’t ever get back, but it’s also the decade where we witnessed the birth of console gaming’s most memorable and curvaceous heroine. Lara Croft is her name, and kicking some serious behind is her game. The tomb raider extraordinaire has spawned many game sequels reaching various consoles, PCs, Macs, and mobile devices. Making its way to Android platform for the first time is Lara Croft: Guardian of Light.
Lara Croft’s South American adventure on Android can now be downloaded from the Google Play Store. For $1.30, you’ll get console-quality HD graphics ported straight from XBLA and PSN, along with full touchscreen control. The game also features the same fast-paced gameplay combined with an element of puzzle solving.
The bad news is it appears Lara has signed a deal with Sony to keep the game exclusively available on Xperia devices for a limited time. Deals like this usually don’t last too long, and we’re positive that you’ll be able to play her on any Android devices soon enough. When it does become available, we’ll be sure to let you know.
For folks sporting Sony’s Xperia device, this is your time to show off Lara running, jumping, shooting, and squealing on your phone to your non-Sony buddies.
