Games for quad-core gadgets are in, NVIDIA Kal-El still isn't
The first game that is optimized for not one, not two, but four sweet CPU cores has appeared in NVIDIA's Tegra Zone. It is a water physics game called Sprinkle, and the goal is to douse fires before the H2O liquid runs out. The reason it's chosen for a quad-core poster child is probably since liquids and all their light reflections require a lot of processing horsepower in games.

When played on dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2 tablets, one core takes care of the physics, the other of the gameplay, adding to the addictive factor, but when the quad-core NVIDIA Kal-El tablets land, it will be beautified even further with shadows, lighting and reflections that will do a water physics game the justice it deserves.

This is actually the third quad-core-optimized game, after the medieval strategy NVIDIA showed when demonstrating project Kal-El, and  Shadowgun, which was announced in May before E3, which is listed on developer's Madfinger website as coming soon. Sprinkle is $1.99 on Tegra Zone, and when the promised for October NVIDIA Kal-El tablets hit, you are likely to have even more fun with it. NVIDIA launched the Tegra Zone web portal the other day, so hopefully the quad-core days are near.

why can they not make tegra optimized games compatible for the Samsung galaxy s2? it would be dumb not to, cuz the Samsung galaxy s2 will probably out sell all the tegra 2 devices ever sold, so they could make alot of money! i know you can use chainfire and stuff but you have to root and about half of galaxy s2 uses probably dont even know what root is, if there is any game optimized for the Samsung galaxy s2 please let me know!
