Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath released on Android and iOS, tests your GPU's might
Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath, an Xbox title re-imagined for smartphones and tablets, is out now on Android and iOS. Being on the bleeding edge of the graphics' end, this game requires at least a 1.2 GHz dual core CPU, 1 GB RAM with Adreno 220, Nvidia Tegra 3, ARM Mali 400-MP, PowerVR SGX 543MP, or similar GPUs. In other words, you need a decent mid-range Android, at the very least, to run it comfortably. Apple users don't have much of a choice beyond the iPhone 5, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, and the last two iPads.

So what do you get for $6 besides sweet graphics? Stranger's Wrath offers 20 hours of gameplay set in the dusty, undeveloped wastelands of Western Mudos. You'll play as Stranger, a drifter turned bounty hunter whose business is hunting outlaws. And business is good, because the re-imagined game comes with fully configurable touch-screen controls, a scalable virtual joystick, seamless transition between first-person and third-person point of view, strategic action gameplay, tons of dialogue and an original soundtrack, bosses with outlandish arsenals and outrageous names, and more. 

In addition to third-party controller support, the game has leaderbords, achievements, and cloud save functionality. It sounds like some quality work went into it!

I thought on Android it would be a timed exclusive to Amazon (and its Kindle). That was one of the shortest timed exclusive I know lol.

That there is a difference between a hoax and a rumor, humorless imp

They can be interchangeable at times, clueless one.

Is this the first reason to actually buy a flagship phone? What else pushes the limits of a mobile device these days?

Had you read the article, you would notice that this game does not require a high end device. Any midranger and a two year old flagship can run it. Right now, there are no games that push the likes of Adreno 330 and Mali T628MP6. But given that they run on 1080p screens, to make sure you can run every game smoothly on full resolution, you wouldn't want a weaker GPU

The article says at least. That doesn't mean it goes fluid or run at the the best settings. If someone has downloaded the game we could know if there are different settings or maybe it goes automatically. Im very interested as i loved the game on my ps3. Im just hoping the ps3 controller can have full functionality. With fifa 15 it doesn't have it but its still miles better than onscreen

The new NFS game would. Pity it's only a limited release so far. Can't wait to try it out in English.

And I'm sure that it comes in at a hefty file size as well. Found it in Google Play for my Note 3 and it says File Size: 1.11GB.

If it can run on a duel core 1.2 ghz with 1 gig of ram I don't see how this game can push the limits of something much more powerful with 3 times the ram??

Low vs medium vs high settings. For example in theory you should be able to play Crysis 3 with Intel Pentium + 2GB of RAM...

This looks fantastic. Can't wait to play on my Note 4 tonight!

Just don't expect it to run it on maximum settings. Judging by the developer notion, maxing this on 1440p is too much even for the Adreno 420.

I wouldn't have guessed my note 4 would have issues maxing it out.. So do like more optimization is needed by the developer if so or maybe I expect too much from the 420

1440p is a bit to much for the adreno 420 i guess 1080p would be the better choice for now. Think that will change with the s810

Honestly I wasn't expecting to. I just look forward to having fun with this.

Yeah, I'm already having fun with it :) It definitely is a great game, just have some patience while getting used to controls. Runs okay maxed on my Note 3. And honestly, you don't have to up the resolution all the way in the Note 4 since you are most likely not to notice the difference between 1080p and 1440p, and Adreno 420 should run it great on 1080p ( slide to about three fourths of the resolution setting in the game).

I've been playing since yesterday. It's pretty good so far. I have it maxed except for resolution as well. I can't complain though. It's fun.

The game is awesome but you're better off playing this on PC or PS3.

Do you play it with a controller? If so wich one? And does it have full functionality?
