Android gamers, here is some good news for you. One of the most anticipated games for the Android platform, Shadowgun finally landed in the Android Market a couple of days ago. The game comes from the developer of Samurai II – Madfinger Games – whose name is associated with quality games.
In Shadowgun, users play the role of John Slade, who is the Galaxy’s most infamous bounty hunter. The role of John’s (user’s) is to hunt down and kill Dr. Edgar Simon. The game has amazing graphics, probably among the best you will ever see in an Android phone.
The sad part is that the game only supports Tegra 2 devices for now. Non-Tegra 2 handset owners need to wait for a few more weeks, until Madfinger releases a version that is compatible with all other Android devices. Here is the market link of Shadowgun.

The game is not yet available in all regions of the world, so users need to wait until Gameloft releases the game worldwide. Alternatively, they can buy the game from Gameloft’s website as well.
