    Qualcomm wants you to know that its new Snapdragon 600 processor is totally badass in just about every way, gaming included. What better way to show off what its new chipset can do then release an in-house game that can act as a tech demo? That’s exactly what they’ve done with Reign of Amira: The Lost Kingdom.

    If the game sounds familiar, that’s because it is the sequel to the original Reign of Amira, which was released not too terribly long ago as a way to show off the Adreno 320 GPU. This time around, the game is an exclusive to Snapdragon 600 devices, at least in theory. Many users are reporting the game installs and plays just fine on the Nexus 4.

    So is this game worth your time? It has some nice eye-candy, that much is true. Unfortunately, if it is anything like the original, it probably doesn’t have much to offer when it comes to enjoyable gameplay. Still, the game is completely free from Google Play, so it doesn’t hurt to at least give it a try if you have a device that can handled it.

    Have you tested it out yet? If so what do you think, any good?

        The galaxy line of phones tends to use outdated GPU’s in there SOC’s. Assuming this game uses OpenGL ES 3, not even the Galaxy S4 will be able to play it.

          OpenGLES 3 only on snap 800, snap 600 OpenGL ES 2

            Wrong! the Adreno 320 support OpenGL ES3, where as for example the version SGX544 supposed to come with the Exynos 5 octa does not

            Wrong! the Adreno 320 supports OpenGL ES3 so even the S4 Pro does support that, where as for example the Galaxy S4 with the Exynos 5 Octa does not, (SGX544 does not support ES3)

          Read the damn article, thanks. Not looking for knowledgeable insight, or helpful suggestions, just wish I could play the game.

      works on my optimus G. guess it will work on any device with adreno 320 gpu. Its not that great of a game though. qualcomm should hire a good game studio to develop a game to showcase the power of their gpu. Ive played better looking games on weaker hardware
