Dungeon Defenders: Bringing the Unreal engine to Android


I didn't even know the Unreal Engine was being ported to Android. Definitely good news though for future Android games. :D Dungeon Defenders looks like a pretty fun game too, even though I'm not too big on MMORPGs.

With so much UI, there's not much space to see what's actually happening on screen.

Still, looking forward to seeing if this is any fun on my Droid X.

I agree. The UI looks ten times busier than that of Dungeon Hunter (which was free a week or so ago) and I found that game to be rather clunky. When my own fingers get in the way of the screen as well I'm beginning to wonder if I should even bother.

I suppose with the old Market app there's still the 24 hour buyer's remorse period, right?

Waay too much going on there for a phone game for me...Plenty of people will like it though and it means progress. just can't imaging having to control all of that even on my evo's screen. rather have a simple fps...

Don't care what anyone says. I want this and I want it NOW!!!!!11!11!1!!1

...Nah, i'm kidding, I can wait. But it seriously looks fun, regardless.

Even though this isn't my type of game I will get it only because I have been waiting for the unreal engine to come to android

huh practically World of Warcraft on mobile, now those WoW nerds can actually get up out of their chair and still play. :P

Interesting... It requires 512MB of Ram - The Fascinate (and I'm pretty sure other Galaxy S phones) display something like 325MB of RAM. Where'd the other 128+MB of RAM go? I had speculated it was allocated for graphics.. Now look here... "Samsung Galaxy based Cell Phones: Fully Compatible on all with 100 MB RAM free"... There's no way it's running that well, with that amount of free resources, with only 325MB of RAM. SO - The Fascinate and other Galaxy S phones DO have 512MB of RAM TOTAL...

Nice to know.

I was so pumped for this game, I just downloaded it last night and after the download you have to download more which took more than the 15 minutes for the refund window. The game runs like garbage on the Droid Incredible, despite the fact that it says it's fully capable. I'm not in a battle with Google to get my money back, granted it's only 3$ but still it shouldn't run this bad :(
