Games for the Tablet

I have been using the Playbook Tablet for about 7 months now. The overall usage is mostly for presentations, movies, music, email and overall entertainment. I rely heavily on gaming. Frankly, apart from a few games (20 to be exact), the app store is completely baseless. Even among the ones present, the quality is terrible and the overall sense of finish is lacking. The games worth mentioning are Asphalt and the first person shooters.

I request RIM to please push the envelope and create better games, or tie up and port games from the iOS system so as to provide a full blown experience. After all, even we would want to play as Iron Man or Optimus Prime and parkour our way through the rooftops in Mirror's Edge. Please work on it.

It is a sincere request.

Re: Games for the Tablet

Thank you for the effort but I doubt that is the solution to my post. Like I said, there has to be quality. Considering that Blackberry is around for a really really long time, the apps have to be much more up to date. Though I prefer a blackberry in my palm, the Playbook tablet is yet to see a similar level of satisfaction. There have to be either porting softwares, or some really good games.

I thouht Spiderman was good.

 

I enjoy tower turret, Plants vs Zombies, Need for speed, angry birds, fruit ninja slash and more.

 

My son has tried many of teh free games and yes some are not so great but how many did we think were great 20 years ago?

 

Some times its about the game not the graphics. EA and gameloft has a bunch of good games too and more big names are coming.

I'm glad you're volunteering to learn how to program games for the PlayBook. I wish more people took it upon themselves to design games for the PlayBook. Thanks for doing that! </sarcasm>
