ShadowGun gets an official trailer, coming in September
ShadowGun made headlines recently with its promise to be the first game with support for quad-core chips like the upcoming Kal-El by NVIDIA, but apart from a couple of screenshots and a short preview video, up until now we could only fantasize about its real graphical punch. But the game creators from Madfingers decided to give us an official demo over at E3. The game will be released for iOS, but it will also support Android mobile devices including those running on the NVIDIA Tegra chip, which by the time of the game's release might turn out to be in quite a lot of high-end mobile gizmos. ShadowGun's release date was also unveiled to be this September, but the price has not yet been determined.

What's different about it is the graphics engine – ShadowGun relies on the multiplatform Unity engine, which should run buttery smooth on most high-end devices. Madfingers promises 60fps on an iPad 2 and Kal-El-equipped gadgets, while other Androids and the iPhone 4 will still manage to run it at 30fps. The video demo below speaks for itself and so could you sharing your thoughts about ShadowGun's graphics in the comments below.

sony vita is not comparable with this .. it has a quad-core cpu and quad core gpu.
it matches the theoretical pixel fill rate on both the 360 and the PS3.
but it's still not as powerfull as PS3 and XBOX360.

so, YES, it's more powerfull than any phone that comes up untill 2013

Wait, this game will be the first game with support for quad core chip and will be released for iOS? Does that mean apple's A5 chip is to be quad core instead of dual cores?

And yes i know this game could probably run just as well on dual cores.

Awesome!!! But, when I'm out at a restaurant and waiting (Which is usually one of the many times I play something on my phone) I would not want to play a game like this. All I can see is 20 minutes of playing... back out of the app... then I look at my notification bar and see a 1/4 full battery.
