Rigonauts Launches Exclusively for Verizon Snapdragon Devices for Two Weeks, Including the RAZR HD

Rigonauts, an award winning ship building puzzle game, has landed in the Google Play store. Well, for some. If you own a Verizon device that is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, then you can grab the game today and play it exclusively for two weeks before it goes public to all Android smartphones.  

I have to admit that I’m not all that familiar with the game, but after watching the preview, I can see how this could be addicting. Your goal is to build a ship that can go to battle and withstand a barrage of bombs and gunfire. If you can take down the enemy ship before your ship is destroyed, you win. It’s just too bad that my RAZR M isn’t showing as being compatible.

On a related note, the message that Verizon sent to us said that they have the exclusive on the game from 10/9 – 10/23, so that it can show off the “driving capabilities” of the Snapdragon processor in the DROID RAZR HD. Wait a minute! I didn’t think we had an official release date for it yet? October 18 looking more likely by the day.

    Was really looking forward to this game. It looks like now that the VZW excusive period is up, it’s only available on snapdragon devices (I confirmed with developer on G+)

    No nexus 7, no moto xoom, but will work on nexus one?

    I don’t know… I’m still trying to make it through all the games I have now. If they had an introductory price of $1, I’d buy it immediately, but for $3, I’ll just keep playing what I have. Still working on beating “Rebuild” on the second highest difficulty…

    Well this defiantly marks one of the most expensive apps I have ever bought (if not the most expensive) but for some reason I am downloading it. I blame you DL! Here is to making my work day a little bit more exciting!

      3 dollars? Lol..

      • Mason Lammers

        I can’t claim that I am not a cheapskate!

  • donebrasko

    That has to mean that RAZR HD w well be released tomorrow. Why hold an app for a whole week when you are trying to showcase a phone?

    • mxracer9111

      I so hope it launches tomorrow. I want to retire my DROID X.

    Snapdragon you say? Too bad I can’t buy it for my Touchpad with an S3, but I can confirm it runs great on it with the apk acquired elsewhere.

    Meh, I’d rather have Wild Blood.

  • EvanTheGamer

    Awesomeness!

    Well, I have a Galaxy Nexus, which is not compatible with the game, BUT my dad owns the incredible Samsung Galaxy S3, so I may have to convince him to download this game so I can give it a whirl. Hopefully. hah

    Oh, I was certain you were gonna hit us with a “There isn’t a fragmentation issue with Android!” bit somewhere in there. Alas, I am disappoint.

    On another note, it’s called Bad Piggies; Rovio beat them to the punch by at least two weeks.

      It’s been out for the PC since August, I believe.

  • Keith0606

    looks like fun, can’t wait for them to make N7 compatible.

  • Daniel Maginnis

    Dumb. Can’t install on my RAZR m either. Might as well have put this in the vzw apps app

      I just looked and it is in the VZW app store…for $5!!!

    Just when you think fragmentation is dead Verizon brings it back to life.

      Nobody ever thought fragmentation was dead. Seen the Android version spread lately? ;)

        And you can’t even say its Android specific anymore. Just look at every model of the iPhone before the 4S. They got “dumbed” down versions of iOS 6 instead of the full thing and some didn’t even get the update at all.

      • r0lct

        IMO only app fragmentation is a big problem

        • michael arazan

          I’ve noticed a ton of apps that don’t work on my Gnex anymore because they aren’t optimized to rum with JellyBean. One of my apps keep rebooting my phone, or causes it to freeze up.
          In my downloaded apps i’ve isolated all the apps that are JB updated/ stable, but still can’t figure out which ones are screwing up my phone.
          I know tune in Radio pro messes with JB and Siege Hero won’t even open, trying to find the rest of the culprits messing up with JB

          App fragmentation is a result of OS fragmentation.

    We will see how long that last… few hours tops
