UK developer ustwo have been responsible for creating some of our favorite Android games. They created the Dot series of games, all of which have been the early reasons for our addiction to gaming on Android. They’ve also made extremely popular iOS games such as Whale Trail, which will be making its way to Android shortly.
Ustwo announced this morning that they’ve partnered with Sony to be the first developer to offer multiplayer gaming on the Google TV platform. Folks who own a Sony-branded Google TV can download Dot TV, a remaking of their first Android game configured to support multiplayer gameplay.
Dot TV is a challenging, yet simplistic game that provides fun and addictive gameplay. You control the white ball, and need to eat blue balls (food) to survive while avoiding pink pyramids (death). The longer you stay alive, the more points you get, and the goal of the game is to collect as many points as possible. You control your Dot using either the Sony TV remote or any Android phone by syncing your phone to the TV.
We think the ability to use your Android device to play multiplayer games on your TV is an awesome concept, and we look forward to trying this out for ourselves. Perhaps we can get Sony to allow us to demo this at their booth this week at CES.
If you own a Sony Google TV device, you can download the free game using the market link at the end of this post. In the meantime, check out this promotional video by the folks over at ustwo.
