Qualcomm releases ‘Reign of Amira: the Lost Kingdom’, a game designed to show off the power of the Snapdragon 600
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?
