Caravel for Android
XDA member methius brings us this rather impressive looking game for Android. This is a turn based strategy game a la Civilization or Heroes of Might and Magic, where you have to explore, build stuff, and get stronger to avoid being defeated by your opponents. Little is know about this game so far, but the dev has stated that the game will go live (or at least as a beta) sometime next week, and also promises that it is smooth with 30 fps, which he got on his Nexus One.
We should certainly keep an eye on this project and once it’s out, make sure you try it and leave feedback for the dev.
Running 30+fps easily on Nexus One..
It’s a turn-based strategy game based on hexagonal tile, and no, not a 1:1 clone of certain popular boardgame!
Beta should be releases somewhere around next week, but will require A2.2 & OpenGL ES 1.1 (so higher end devices, Nexus One and up)
You can find more information in the game thread.
