N.O.V.A. 3 is Now Available on Android

N.O.V.A. 3, the newest member to Gameloft’s increasingly popular first person shooter series, is available now on Android. With some of the more stunning graphics we have seen in a mobile game to date (at least in previews), this looks like another winner for one of mobile gaming’s biggest players. The game itself runs $6.99, but before you attempt to buy, make sure that your device is compatible. I can tell you now that my Tegra 3-powered HTC One X has been left off of the list, yet devices like the Galaxy Nexus and DROID RAZR made the cut. 

Play Link ($6.99)

    As much as I want to play this…I think I’ll wait. Beat some of the games I already have like Mass Effect and the DLC from Shadow Gun and Modern combat 3 lol.

    Compatible on both my HTC Rezound and my Transformer Prime (TF201)

      1705.42 MB additional worth of files to download…. Yeah, can we have that 24 hour return period back please Google?

      • JoshGroff

        I think 2-3 hours is good enough, but 24 would be nice. 15 minutes is a joke even for apps without huge downloads.

  • Clifford Gadd

    Does its have controller support?

    • Buckoman

      Bluetooth? Just make sure it’s set as an input method and you’ve mapped the buttons accordingly… my Wiimote works really nicely with my phone. The only think I don’t like is that there’s no inertia effect for the joysticks, so I don’t think it would be quite as enjoyable.

    I’ll wait till one of those crazy .10 sales comes around on Google Play. That’s how much I paid for Shadowgun and Fieldrunners.

    • JoshGroff

      I bought 30 apps that week, it was beautiful. Then again I also bought FPSe and PowerAMP at full price.

    Nice. Toxic Avenger. This is the first time I’ve heard their music being used for a commercial product and I’ve been a fan for years. 😉

    after buying nova 1, and it not working on my gnex, then nova 2, and dosn’t work on my gnex, I doubt I will buy this. the get my money and then don’t support. They won’t get any more.

    • michael arazan

      i played nova2 on my gnex right after download for 20 minutes, i closed the game and came back to it later and wouldn’t work, the same happened with shadowgun

    • Buckoman

      You know you can refund your purchase before 15 minutes, no questions asked, if the app doesn’t work, right?

  • RobMorris

    I remember when the first NOVA came out on my iPod touch, it was the shit back then

  • regkilla

    This game is awesome. You guys will like it

  • possomcrast1

    Graphics are impressive but they really are blatantly copying off of crysis and halo. You can’t blame them though when the actual developers of those games aren’t taking advantage of the mobile platform.

  • mikeL

    Got this on my iPad (Have a droidx, don’t throw things at me!) a few weeks back… I was absolutely blown away with the graphics. Don’t think it would be very fun on any screen under 6-7”, but if you have a tablet thats supported GET IT! 🙂

    • possomcrast1

      I salute you for not being a fan-boy one way or the other. (i’m guilty of being kind of an android fan-boy…or is it i just hate the way apple does things. I’m guessing it’s the latter seeing as i would never use a mac either.

      • Bob Martin

        When Apple stops suing to be successful I may purchase an apple from a grocery store and see where it goes from there.

        • Brian Getchel

          I’m enjoying an apple product right now. It’s running honeycrisp

    • Azn_Android

      It’s sad you have to defend yourself to make sure no one throws anything at you 😛 I myself have been using iOS until I got a galaxy nexus and hey I still have an iPad. Might as well use the best of everything, right? 😉

  • Mack

    NOVA 2 runs like butter on my X2, hope this will be the same.

  • Bob Martin

    for $7 does it come with a free sd card for the 1 gb+ extra data?

    • JoshGroff

      I’ve paid more for PSP downloads, FF7/8/9 and Dissidia: 012 Duodecim to name a few, which also don’t come with a memory card, Quit complaining. SD cards are fairly cheap anyway.

    • Buckoman

      If you don’t have at least 1GB of application reserved storage, your phone might not even run the game.

  • noble95x

    does the droid 3 have support?

  • GSAI

    I hope it’s well optimized. The iOS version is one of the best mobile games I’ve ever played, but I haven’t had good success with Gameloft Android games before.

  • Holy crap yes.

  • Jeremy Gentry

    nova2 ran like crap on my thunderbolt, i hope this one is better optimized
