Galaxy on Fire 2 THD has 4x details on Tegra 2

Written by Fuad Abazovic


Compared with non-THD Tegra 2 version
We had a chance to chat with the key marketing guy from Fish labs, the company behind the Galaxy on Fire 2 game, a pretty looking space shooter.

We have downloaded and played the game on LG Optimus 2x phone and Asus transformer 10.1 tablet and we can tell you that the experience and playability is much better on the tablet. We still need to try to mirror the LG Optimus 2X on the TV and see how that goes but we are too lazy to go and buy a micro HDMI cable.

Kai Hitzer, the marketing director of Fish labs has showed us and told us that the THD version of the game, optimised for Tegra 2 has four times the polygon count and four times more derails than the standard version. This is quite a difference and you can clearly see that Tegra 2 version looks much better than the vanilla one.

The best part is that the game can be downloaded for free and if you really like it the company will ask you for 15 USD which might be quite steep for a tablet / phone game. It’s free on market and if you have Tegra 2 chip in tablet or phone, you can definitely give it a try as it looks quite good and plays great on a bigger screen.

Amidst all the 'fragmentation' trolls and their flamebait this is actually what I'd consider a real concern - hardware-restricted applications.

It's not for lack of power either, as Qualcomm's, TI's and Samsung's competing chips are actually more powerful than the Tegra 2.

Leave it to Nvidia to try and corner the market with some underhand tactic. :(

Yes I agree to Exodite...

Tegra 2 is not the fastest ARM in the market...so to rephrase the article this game is 8x more enjoyable if you use other than Tegra 2

That doesn't really matter - Nvidia has a lot of pull with developers, so they will just optimize their stuff to run faster on Tegra.

They screwed ATI for years thanks to their love affair with developers, so I doubt Qualcomm or Samsung will do any better.

well ,the graphic part of the tegra chips
are completely different from other ARM
based chips.
so it's nothing extra ordinary that they
can optimize any program to work better on
different platforms.
but its strange for me why developers
don't produce two version of the game for
them instead of one.

after all its like a normal pc game if the
producer don't optimize game for AMD or
NVIDIA every body say the game is
coded bad and they must fix it if they
optimize it for one they say the other
one bought them. right now a good game usually have several different optimization
for both platform so every body can enjoy it .
but sadly it seems it must take several
year for them to learn do such thing for
mobile games .

i think samsung might be able to do something.

AMD creates great products but they need to learn from NV and Intel for some underhand "marketing strategy"
