Avatar HD for the Android platform is developed by Gameloft, well known around the Android universe as having the best set of games.
Avatar’s game does not follow the movie’s plot in every detail but you can see the same (though not complete) world of James Cameron’s Avatar and embark on a journey of redemption and discovery two decades prior to the events in the film.
Play as Captain Ryan Lorenz into the body of an experimental human-Na’vi hybrid, becoming the first avatar. I played this in easy mode and there were a few wherein I did not have an easy time. Although the combos for the avatar are repetitive, you get to upgrade your weaponry and armor as you accomplish mission by mission.
The game features around 15 levels, from the human-built mines and military strongholds to beautiful waterfalls and lush jungles that come alive at night with bioluminescent plants.
The controls can be a bit sketchy at times. The avatar character tends to move and evade backwards when it is moving so sometimes I got miffed when instead of jabbing forward to lunge at the enemy, my character tumbles backward.
Still, I enjoyed every press of my thumbs with this game. Absolutely one of the best games for Android. And it is not just the same arcade style shooting that you can do in this game. There are also game plays where you battle enemy ships in the skies of Pandora riding on a banshee in shoot ’em-up sequences.
This neat game of the hit tv-series Avatar The Last Airbender for the PSP features RPG type play with the usual goals of defeating enemies and gaining experience and using them to upgrade a character’s fighting skills and techniques. The game features sequences where you manage a 4 team group, duo or single depending on the situation of the game. Fans of Avatar would surely love this as characters and the storyline hold true to the series.
You get to handle each character from Earth, Water and Air as you battle forest beasts, renegades and fire nation soldiers. If you do not have the patience to play RPG games though, you will not enjoy this one because you would have to fight through enemy lines to gain experience in order to upgrade your skills and techniques up to their maximum levels. Each character has their own special super power that can deal great damage to the enemies. As you move about in villages and temples, you can purchase additional stuffs to help you in your battles. Your money will come from boxes you destroy or enemies that you defeat. Once you take control of a character to fight the enemy, your other character is CPU controlled and does a good job of avoiding hits so you only need to concentrate on the character that you are controlling.
Individual enemies can be easily dealt with. The problem is when there are lots of them ganging up on you can greatly result in your defeat. As much as possible try to sneak up on them one by one rather than going to the middle and having them gang up on you. The game’s graphics is very neat and fans of the hit series will love that they can use their characters to do bending techniques (I did).
