The Dark Knight Rises game now available on Android
Every new blockbuster movie has to have a game tie-in, that's been a rule of law since the early days of gaming. The last Christopher Nolan Batman is no different, and Gameloft made it official today by releasing The Dark Knight Rises into the Google Play Store. This is a premium game from Gameloft, meaning it is big, detailed, and pretty expensive for a mobile game. 

The game follows what has become a pretty standard, but effective formula that games have used for both Spiderman and Batman recently. You get an open world (Gotham) in which you can swing around or coast from place to place either playing random instances, or following along with story missions. The story has you saving the city from Bane with the help of Commissioner Gordon, Catwoman, and of course Morgan Freeman Lucius Fox. 

The game looks amazing, but when we say it's big, we mean it. The game is 1.8GB, so be sure you are on WiFi and have the space before purchasing. And, as for the purchase, the game will run you $6.99 in the US, £4.99 in the UK, and other prices in other denominations depending on where you live and where the game is available. 

Oddly, this morning Gameloft had announced that 10 of its best titles were optimized for use on the Nexus 7, but when The Dark Knight Rises launched, it wasn't compatible with Google's new tablet. Luckily, Gameloft has already pushed an update bringing compatibility for the Nexus 7, so no more worries there. 

If you're interested, just grab the game from the Google Play Store.

no, i have downloaded it on both the ipad and my new nexus 7, both the games look roughly the same...apple version has better graphics and elegance but the android version is brighter...this is strange because all the apps are bigger on ipad, actually i prefer bigger apps for ipad than the nexus 7 because(unfortunately) i have the 8 gb nexus 7

i think they have designed it to run well on all screen resolutions,which is consuming unnecessary space..... i used to have an app on my iphone 4 that was 49mb in size, but when the new ipad was released,the size was increased to 57mb because they had to optimize it to work well on the ipad's retina display, but it was just a waste of space for me because i didn't get anything new.......generally apple apps look much better than android apps,developers say that apple's xcode,sdk makes it possible to make more beautiful apps and games....so now,what should android developers do? maybe they can't do much about the quality of the apps, but they can do something about the games, they can feed in the extra code and effort that will definitely consume more space, but you will get a good game.....so everyone who wants to buy a good tablet should wait for the smaller ipad or just buy a 16gb nexus 7.....i have an 8gb version and its really not sufficient

not meant to be drama, but thinking of 12 people killed when watching this movie keeps me away from the movie and the game also :|
