MobileBits and NVIDIA bring SoulCraft THD to Android, get in on the open beta now


Game developer MobileBits has teamed up with NVIDIA to bring SoulCraft THD to the Android platform for Tegra devices. SoulCraft THD is currently in an open beta, meaning they’re looking for Tegra users to test out the game and help them iron out any bugs that need fixing.

SoulCraft THD is an Action RPG, with an apocalyptic fantasy setting where Humans, Angels and Demons fight for the future of the world through completing various quests. Most of you who’ve played RPGs or MMORPGs will feel right at home with this genre, and the quest-based gaming you’re used to is replicated in SoulCraft.

In the open beta, you’ll only be allowed to play as the Angel class, who have teamed up with the Demons to bring the apocalypse to the world. Venice, Italy, and Hamburg, Germany, will serve as the two main locales in the beta, with New York, Tokyo, and Washington D.C. levels coming soon.

We haven’t spent much time with SoulCraft THD yet, but we think the gameplay is sure to please those of you who enjoy games in the RPG genre. We have a few RPG-lovers on the staff, and we’ll be checking out the beta over the next couple of weeks to let you know what we think of it. In the meantime, check out the launch trailer and gameplay videos below to see what you’re getting yourself into.

The open beta for SoulCraft THD can be found on the Android Market for free.

    Heading to market, and right now

    I love the background music in the trailer!

    Games for our phones are getting scary amazing. The cellphone industry took notes from the computer industry and has innovated 3 times the power in 1/4 the time it took computers. I remember one of the Google founders said in an interview in 1997, “You wait, cellphones will be the only device you will need – it will do everything from unlock your car to taking care of your banking.”

    And then some…

    I’d be all over it if it were not a Tegra-only beta. My Mail-400 is ready for action! :P

      Mali-400* – I need an edit button :P

    Btw, a clarification from the developer states that it is Honeycomb and up only. Older Tegra 2 devices (G2X, etc) on Gingerbread will be shown as incompatible.

      I was wonderin…. my x2 gets no love…

      Boo! The fine folks of CM need to get us G2x owners onto ICS. (Boo to the game devs… not to CM.) You’d think that a G2x with CM7 OC’d to 1.4 ghz would be good enough.

    The game is “meh”. I hate to be a downer but games like these just have plain terrible controls. This game isn’t the worst offender but the controls definitely make it a game that I would never play for any period of time.

    I think the problem is that, while smart phones and tablets have been out for quite a while now, people are still trying to just make console or handheld games on touchscreen devices and it just doesn’t work. It is basically like trying to make Halo work on a d-pad, you can’t. Developers need to accept the limitations of having a touch screen and work around that and, if they are good/smart enough, use the touch screen to their advantage.

    This game’s visuals are good enough, and the game itself seems like it could be fun to play if it had a controller.

    Don’t you think the gameplay is a little bit boring?
